I think it’s Zack Arias who says “less noise, more signal.” David Hobby’s interpretation of the phrase is “less frequency, more amplitude.” Basically it boils down to quality over quantity. That’s how I would describe my blog in 2013. I decided that instead of reposting or re-purposing interesting photography-related articles, I would focus my blog on my photo shoots or topic related to interior photography. I still post the interesting articles on my Facebook page which gets posted on my Twitter feed. So if you want to see those, please follow me there. But I figure other photographers are not my customer base or potential clients so I want to focus my blog to help attract new business.
In 2011 my blog had 14,793 visits which just blew my mind. In 2012 that number was 18,159. Considering I blog only occasionally and make no money from my blog, I think that’s pretty good. The total number for 2013 was “just” 13,303. But I only wrote 15 new posts for the year. Less frequency. More amplitude.
I’ll really try to blog more in 2014 and I hope you continue to find value in what I have to say. You can always search the archive for helpful and interesting posts.
Anyway, take a look at the report WordPress put together and if you commented on my blog in 2013 you might see your name.
Thanks for reading…
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
