I don’t want to be one of those bloggers who comes on and begs for readers, but this is too interesting not to share. When I began writing on Breaking Bad I was getting pretty steady traffic here, I’m not breaking any records or anything but I was pleased with the amount of readers I was getting.
And then I wrote this. (Warning: Link Contains Spoilers)
And then this happened:
Yeah those last couple days there? Notice how they’re so much shorter than the rest of the bars? They’re the ugly and stubby post signs saying I just lost a shitload of readers after making a single post. So how did this happen?
Well as a friend of mine pointed out, he’s been avoiding my blog because he hasn’t caught up with the latest season of Breaking Bad and wants to avoid spoilers. But is this the case with the rest of you? Here’s your chance to tell me.
Like I said I don’t want to turn into a blogger than writes up sad, pleading posts every time his traffic dips below optimal. However I also want to keep you guys reading obviously, and not just because of the advertising money it brings (I make like $3.00 a month from ad revenue). I enjoy being able to entertain and inform you guys about writing, stories and all that good stuff.
So is it just people are avoiding spoilers for Breaking Bad, which admittedly my articles are full of, or was that last post poorly done? Did you not like the content or how it was written?
Come on people, bring me your complaints, suggestions or praise. Just let me know I’m not alone in this big lonely desert called the internet.
Please? I’ll give you a cookie!
