When you are blogging, there are numbers for everything: Numbers of blog visitors, numbers of page views, time spent on pages, percentage of click throughs, numbers from this country, numbers from that referral source, numbers of comments, numbers of likes & shares, and so it goes on.
I don’t know if you are anything like me, but I don’t know hundreds of people in real life. I can’t visualise thousands of pairs of eyes all looking at the same thing. So when the numbers say XXXX people saw this post, my eyes glaze over.
The numbers don’t matter.
When I write a blog post, I am sitting alone, one on one with my computer. I can picture one person reading it (*even if it is only me) and so with that perspective, any number greater than one is irrelevant.
It is not a number reading the blog, it is a person.
Numbers don’t matter, but people do.
