RIPCov qhua: Cia 33%
Xyuas nplooj ntawv: Cia 18%
RSS Cov Ntawv Sau Npe: Nce 5%
Adsense: Cia 70%
Qeb Technorati: Poob 4%.

These are some of my statistics for the last two weeks on my blog! For my regular visitors, you'll notice I've not been blogging consistently – one of those cardinal rules that you should never break. Blogging is all about momentum. Once you lose momentum, there's no immediate means to snap back.

I've noticed some bloggers do a fantastic job of filling dead space by:

  1. Rov teev cov npe nrov tshaj plaws hauv blog.
  2. Muaj qhua bloggers.
  3. Rub rau hauv cov xov xwm sib txuas (vis dis aus lossis suab) clips uas muaj nyob rau cov ncauj lus thiab nrhiav tau ntawm youtube thiab lwm yam raws.

The only tactic I've been taking is to continue posting Del.icio.us links. I basically stopped writing, thinking about writing and stopped participating in other blog conversations. One of the reasons I didn't put alternate methods in to retain readers was that I puas tau xav pom dab tsi yuav tshwm sim.

Muaj ib tug RSS feed appears to be the one publishing method that can retain (and even boost) subscribers. I'm not positive, but I'd be willing to bet that it was visitors that came here by search engine, noticed how many subscribers I have, and thought it worthy of participating. The daily links from Del.icio.us are at least providing some value to these new subscribers.

If you're a new subscriber, expect more from me! I'm right in the middle of an employment change and delivering a mapping application to a client. Truth be told, I'm also having a beer or two each evening this week with my fellow employees from my current employer. They are a rapidly growing Inc 500 company and I don't want employees to think I'm leaving the company for some negative reason… I'm simply moving to a new challenge and fantastic opportunity.

Monday will be my first day with my new employer and I'm looking forward to it. By the end of next week, things should calm down and I'll be back in action. With this job, I'll have exposure to outsourced development firms, a new online industry (restaurant marketing and patronage), new technology (Point of Sale integration) and e-commerce. Be prepared for some great content as I dive in!

    I guess I am not surprised. I have little enough time to scan RSS feeds let alone visit individual blog sites. (Blame the whole matter on me!) To make matters worse, if a blogger doesn’t offer a full feed I generally can’t afford to read the blurb and _then_ have to go to the site to finish the offering. (Sorry, blame me again, it is all my fault.)

    Muaj lub sijhawm so yog zoo thiab muaj hmoo nrog txoj haujlwm ua haujlwm.

    Don’t worry about the numbers. My own blog has pretty static traffic numbers, page views and RSS subscribers. I get the occasional surge from StumbleUpon but that is about it. But then I only have time to blog twice a week so I never expect my readership base to grow rapidly.

    I’m going to try a new filler post tactic soon to bring me up to 3 posts a week. I’ll see how it goes.

      I’ve had their javascript embedded in my footer for quite some time. Thanks for putting this post up, though! I haven’t actually gone and checked the stats out.

      I really am thankful for the friends, like you, that keep coming back and joining the conversation. In a lot of ways, I’m an observer… checking out the conversations between other folks.

Yuav ua li cas koj xav hais tias?
