Over the last few months, I have cut way back on the time I spend on my social media accounts. And my social media accounts are where a chunk of my blog views occur. So I had anticipated my blog views would drop considerably.
But, I also have many blog views from worldwide internet searches on related topics too, showing my blog posts come up high in internet search results.
I also have views for this blog via my high traffic Website.
It is bizarre to me still, how many read my blog posts and knowing people from so many countries are sitting reading my stuff, every day.
It’s feel surreal. Especially considering the unpleasant nature of the content of my blog.
It’s not like I blog about cooking, or being a health fanatic, or fashion, or how to be a success, or how to make lots of money, or those ever popular ‘happiness is the be-all-and-end-all of everything’ topics…. many people enjoy and are very popular.
I write about topics that are largely ignored, are taboo and avoided by the general population – abuse, child abuse, sexual abuse, mental health, suicide, self harm, abusive people, types of abuse etc….. Not pleasant topics.
But, it does show how the stuff I write about…….there is a need for.
I cannot deny the level of views this blog has, or minimize what that means.
