I don’t usually post about personal things on my blog, but I’ve been in kind of a weird mood lately and have some questions I hope will be answered by some of my readers. Do I have readers? I get comments somteimes but don’t have that many followers, and lately my number of daily views has been dropping even lower than usual, and I’ve just been feeling sort of discouraged. I don’t blog for blogosphere fame or whatever, but I would like to gain more readers so I can share my thoughts about literature with more people. If I was really worried about the amount of followers I have or views per day, I guess I wouldn’t blog at all, but I’ve just been feeling kind of down about it lately.
How can I get more readers/followers? I post stuff on fb, twitter, and tumblr, and I’m worried that maybe free WordPress isn’t a good platform for getting more followers because…I don’t know. I don’t know why I think that. I also wish I could have social media buttons to make it easier to follow me on Goodreads, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc., but free wordpress doesn’t have that. I’ve thought about buying a WordPress.com domain name, but I don’t know how many more options I would get with that. Self hosting is just super expensive and complicated and I don’t have the HTML skills to do what I want like make graphics specific to my blog and change my post styles and things like that.
Are there any easy-to-use self-hosting platforms that are affordable for an average college student? Are there better free platforms that offer the features I want? Does anyone actually read/like this blog? I want to be professional-blogger-ish, but I’ve just been feeling frustrated lately. #bloggerbluesyeah.
