It makes you realize that even though humans are inherently selfish, some have extra doses of it.
Here I am feeling happy with my stats that seems to be jumping up in bits and I read someone’s blog only to hear them complain about having just 500 views which they consider as ‘piddling views.’
How ungrateful is that? In my opinion, you ought to be grateful for even one view!
It’s a privilege that people come to your site to read your articles and not your right. They are not obliged to do so.
Maybe, you should consider paying for the views, that way, the line would grow so long, hmm?
You ain’t no superstar yet, so just why do you think that 500 views are piddling for you when there are so many other bloggers who are scrounging for 100 views?
What have you been doing for these faithful readers of yours, that should make them glad to be around you?
Possibly, Ziltch, Nada, Nothing, Rien.
Maybe, you don’t even bother to read other peoples blogs, because you are too busy feeling like God’s gift to blogging Earth and caught up in your own World.
We all want millions of views, but it comes at a price and with lots of sacrifices.
I keep reminding myself each day that ‘yes, I love the stats, but I should never lose focus on the reason why I am writing.’
When you lose focus on why it is that you are mingling with others, you stand the chance of becoming ungracious.
You stand the chance of developing unnecessary anxiety over the numbers and spend all your time comparing notes.
Appreciate where you are at each point in time. Adjust if need be.
Otherwise, not only will you begin to suck, but over time, your blog will suck as well.
Attitude is everything and I honestly can’t stand selfish people.
There it is! I have had my little rant and I hope someone will read this and make some sense out of it, especially the whiner.
