After months of working at it, I finally finished. I beat the game 2048! Take a look.
Most of the time, my game ended at 512, sometimes I made it to 1024, but for the first time ever, I won the game!
Blogging can be a hobby, a platform for selling something, or it could be a job. But what makes a blog successful?
My short answer: You enjoy doing it. That’s it. The numbers don’t matter.
But, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t care about the numbers. The numbers are fascinating for me. I like to see them go up, but this isn’t because I have an ego to stroke. More views and more followers mean my network grows and my ability to get my books out to more readers improves. It’s an important factor for my future livelihood.
If we look at the numbers, there are several to consider: views, followers, likes, reblogs, and comments. They all show something positive.
Personally, I think the most important measure is comments, especially if many of them are your own. This means you are active, interested in your readers, and attract readers. They want to talk to you. Views are good, especially if you have a lot of return readers. You can easily tell this by your comments section. You want people to return. But I believe comments are the greatest indicator of your blog’s success.
