Seth Godin posted a great article the other day called, Fans, participants and spectators. In it he states…
“If all you’re doing is increasing the number of digital spectators to your work, you’re unlikely to earn the conversion you deserve.”
He talks mostly about making money but I agree with him 100%. Blogging isn’t about how many readers/followers/likes you have. It’s about finding your tribe and forming valuable relationships. Which is why I say the Number of People Following you Doesn’t Matter.
Blogging is not a popularity contest. It’s a passion.
