I commented this on the original post and figure I’d repeat it here. Focus on doing what you do and doing it to the best of your ability may give you more creative freedom. I know that it is always encouraged to get more followers, more likes, more everything. In fact, it is your creativity and your persistence that will work for you over time. Not everyone starts these things and not everyone keeps them up. Likes and such can come with time. You can’t expect to be the same place in your journey as someone else. Each person starts at a different place and some have more family and friends than others. Some start out having a following. Some do not. Anyway just a different viewpoint. Being you is the most important thing you can do for yourself and for your blog. Hope it is of interest. If not, feel free to ignore it 🙂
Yes, I like all five of them. It is strange that in real life, I’ve never aspired to be popular. Not even in high school. However online, I just want to check the likes, the views, the comments several times a day. That’s so strange. Do people have different personalities online?
People can say that followers, likes, views don’t matter much. Focus on your content. Is it really true?
It’s basic human nature. We want the return of our investment pretty good. More than 60% of peeps here on WordPress want their stats to boom & there isn’t anything wrong about that.
I’ve seen numerous great blogs & wondered dude! only 3likes & something like that?
Anyways, it hurts when other followers don’t interact(every time) and get vanished immediately after clicking follow.
(Mentioned the same comment on the original post.)
I definitely agree with you. I get a lot of kind words on my writing style but I seldom see any or many likes, and yet others, which are poorly formatted and/or have dozens of spelling and grammatical errors, see dozens. It does make you think.
That being said, I did follow Pooja’s advice and get rid of any bot followers. I don’t think everyone thinks to do that.
Thank you so much for re-sharing this! Means a lot since I am really proud of this post! <3
You-re very welcome- it’s one of my favourite posts by you!
I marvel at people who do not read any of the particular blogger’s posts but just follow them. I know, they’re saying indirectly “Follow me, I’m following you.” This happens to me everyday. But that’s not how it works. I only follow blogs I genuinely like. This reminds me every time how people are OBSESSED with having followers just for the sake of it.
Here’s what I do: every now and then, I go tjrough my followers and I read of a couple of their posts. If they seldom post, I don’t return the follow. If their posts are poorly edited and formatted, no follow. If they’re a bot (usually a sketchy online store specialising in CBD oil or something), no follow. Following me doesn’t guarantee a follow back. If you want the followers, you have to put the work in.
Personally, I think page views matter more anyway. Not everyone who reads you will follow you 😊
Off a* autocorrect, apologies
Very rightly said!
Thank you 😊
Exactly! This is the best thing to do actually.
I also commented on the original post:
These are poignant thoughts—thoughts every blogger has or has had at some point or another…
The honest ones will admit it.
The ‘not-honest’ ones will not.
Does that make sense?
I hope not.
Great ‘thought-provoking’ post.

I’m just going to repeat more or less what I said on the original post
3 and 4 are so relatable for me. I had someone who I think is/was a reader message me on my private Facebook (also public) this morning and I am definitely not as cool there as I am on my blog! On my blog, I know that i have to be compelling and interesting, so I try. On Facebook, I know that it’s mostly my family so I’m not nearly as interesting and, because of my niche, I’m a lot more casual!
With 4, I have definitely read from some people.who appwar to have no energy and yet, similarly, they’re up thousands of likes and followers. My niche is quite controversial but I still try to be fun and energetic in it. It’s a bit like having a boring tutor, versus having a fun one. Who do people really listen to? It seems though, that’s not the case when it comes to blogging!
Thanks for sharing, Pooja!
the questions in mind are surely especially the 1st and the 4th one
that was a fun read; thanks for sharing!
Haha, this was great read. I guess we all have these crazy thoughts sometimes.
This is relatable af😭😭😭 Even my stats are not always high but I have noticed that they go up every alternate week so that’s fine by me. But my life doesn’t depend on the stats or likes or views or comments as long as I enjoy blogging that’s all that truly matters to me.💖🤍✨
Oh woww! This is really amazing. Can see why you shared it. While not obsessed with just likes, I do struggle with wanting to post something relevant. I put pressure on my own self to make sure to come up with something that does not waste anyone’s time.
Oooff! So real!
love this sharing Pooja!💖💖💖
Moksha is such a realist and I love her and reading her work. Thank you for sharing this Pooja❤
She is and I’m always happy to share her posts!
