A Question

It’s 10:41 pm

A question for my fellow bloggers and writers:

What is most important to you:

Traffic and pageviews



Love to hear your comments and takes on this matter.

  1. I like the connection when someone reads something I wrote and it spoke to them, even if their take on it wasn’t the original intent. Also like it when I write something and it inspires someone else to find their words, maybe to express joy or loose the thing inside that was festering or bring light where there was darkness. One can hope, anyways.

    • I like the engagement as well….I like the traffic but I enjoy the comments from folks who read and want to share an opinion as well. I know I have to do a better job at answering back however!


  2. My blog is mainly about the difficulties faced by my son and what we are doing to bring changes. My main hope with the blog is that I will reach out to new people and get them thinking. I love receiving comments from people who had no idea about the difficulties we face but now care. Many will come back later and say that they are now looking at “disabled toilets” with new eyes.

    That is what matters most to me.

  3. I love your blog and I truly admire parents who fight like hell for their children. Being a caregiver can be such a solitary labor of love and it always feels good to get a morale boost once in a while. Your son is blessed to have such a caring mum.


    • Actually I am in our group because the old one I was in,decided it wasn’t important. Now I do agree generic comments are a bit disheartening but I’m starting to see some thought and care being left behind,that shows me that my WRITING in having a impact. That it is worth reading. And I don’t mind if I get sassy or negative feedback,because it also helps me. How are we supposed to know if no one says anything?


  4. For me it is all about connection. The original aim of my blog was to raise awareness on baby loss and I feel I have done that by connecting with those who need help to survive the worst time of their lives by reading about mine. xx

    • I like your answer….I see too many bloggers just kissing a sponsor’s ass in regarding a product or service they have gotten for free. Not everything is a winner and repeatedly saying otherwise only marks one as a shrill and not to be taken seriously.


  5. I think both are important together because engagement shows that people have connected with your content but page views show how many people have found your page and read your work (providing bounce rate isn’t too high), because a lot of people will read a post and find it interesting but might not comment or share on social media x

  6. Hm I guess traffic is the most important to me because engagement is so hard to come by. I do get that warm fuzzy feeling though when someone actually comments though!
