Sorry for the infrequent posts lately. I hesitate to write that because many times on the Interwebs I have unearthed the remains of ancient blogs whose last post was, “Wow, it’s been a while since I posted. I promise to do better! :)”
I think I’ve hit the proverbial slump; my stats have flatlined, and while my RSS subscribers have almost reached 50 (hey everybody, thanks for listening!), it’s still discouraging. Field of Dreams, be damned: If you write it, they will not automatically come.
Granted, I never expected to be famous or generate a lot of money (After five months of shoving ads down your throat, I almost have enough for a latte). But blogging is hard work, and if you want visitors, you have to spend as much time marketing the blog as writing for it. I’m also thinking of doing some freelance writing on the side – Did you know people pay you to write content online? 🙂
At any rate, I have found HubPages, which is another way to write content and maybe get noticed. My first HubPage is on the ever-elusive “Fifth Beatle.” That will do for now in lieu of a new music post.
I promise to be in a happier mood next time.
