Unless you’re super-famous or already have a large built-in audience, the first year or so of blogging can be a pretty tough slog.
You will see traffic spikes of optimism that come crashing down to days of very little traffic or any at all. This can very disheartening and frustrating and this can lead to a little bit of sloppiness – you might forget to spell check or not tag items or give your posts poor titles, or *gasp* start posting pictures of your cat – thinking that it doesn’t matter because nobody is reading anyways.
But if you keep at it, your traffic will grow and one day you might regretting all of those less-than-stellar posts with spelling errors and photos of your cat in a party hat (not that there’s anything wrong with cats).
So always write like you have a millions readers, because one day you just might.
