Zero Reads and The Joy of Writing

Article, letters, Writer life

To the one who’s reading this,

Yesterday I saw 7 views, 4 likes and I was like, yoohoo there are people reading!

Zero reads, zero visitor, zero likes… that’s how most days goes by.

It does kinda feel lonely looking at blogs with a lot more followers.

But at the same time, I truly respect all the time and dedication they give to their blog. The SEO, SEMs and the amount of research put into it.

While I’d love to have a well-functioning blog someday, right now I can’t even make up what do I write about.

Everything I write about are things that touches me, things that move me and the things that abruptly pop up from my imagination. And being a very fickle minded person, no two days are the same. I just write for the joy of writing. It’s a therapy to me, helps me collect my thoughts.

Now I guess being read feels really amazing too.

It’s like, ‘I’m not the only person reading my blog.’

So, thank you for reading. I mean it.

Lots of love,

Girl who loves to write

    1. Haha! Considering we’re both on the same phase and you’re my most consistent reader. How about you tell me , what do you want me to write about? After all, it’s all about what my readers want to read. ❣️

    1. Dearest Rashmi, I have no idea how I missed this. I just looked at my spam section and saw 51 comments. I was shocked. I’m really very glad you could relate. So sorry! 💕

      1. Your appreciation really means a lot to me. They drive me to keep writing, keep posting and keep trying. 💕❤️❤️🤗🤗😘😘

    1. True… But now I run after the stats, and when it drops I feel sad… Then I need to zap myself to the fact that posting was never in my head, I always wrote cause I love to write. I really should get a grip on my stats hunger. Else, it’ll suck the fun out of blogging. 😂😂😂

      1. Yes, true, it’s easy to get stuck with what’s addictive and gives us a dopamine hit. Sure, the stats are an imp metric, but I hope you really connect with the want to write and sharing a story that others can relate to, which you do, and I hope you will continue to do so. All the best 🙌

      2. I hope so too! Writing has always been such a personal journey for me, it’s been my best friend through the toughest times, I’d hate it if stats hunger take that away from me…. I hope to keep writing stuff you relate to. All the best to you too. 🤗🤗😘😘💞💞❣️❣️💖💖❤️❤️
