Oh reader, where art thou?

I use a program called Google Analytics to track the visits to this here website, and I was noticing a slow but upwards trend. Then something happened after the first of the year. Either the visit tracker is broken, or no one is visiting my blog anymore. I sure hope that it is the former and not the latter.

I know that someone is aware of my little blog and the things I discuss here, especially the spammers who are hoping that I am idiotic enough to publish their comment hawking some nefarious product no one really wants to buy. I get about one of those comment attempts every couple of weeks, usually for an older post.

It is discoveries like this one that makes me wonder if I am beating my head against a literary rock. I write to share with others, and I now wonder if I am wasting my time here. I know I can see more fruitful ground over at The Spark, and it was this little blog that helped me get my start there, but should I continue with Sylvie is a Blogger? Should I close the door here and open up another elsewhere? Or should I say chuck it all, and keep writing, even if I am the only one who ever reads this thing? At least I have a free place to store what ramblings I pen.

Hey this is Jenny. I have my own blog too that no one visits. So I'm in the same boat your in. Just keep writing even if no one reads them. eventually someone will. That's what I've been doing. Someday my blog will be read. I know it. I guess it doesn't help that I haven't really invited any of my friends to join yet (I'm kind of self conscious about what I right and am not sure weather I'm ready for them to poke fun of it yet). But I will get them to join one of these days when I get the nerve. But anyway keep up with the blog, I'll read it if you read mine. lol

God Bless,

I fixed an issue I had with a tracking system I had installed. I now can see who, is viewing and or reading.

I just added you to my list of blogs that I read. Thanks for commenting
