The only time to believe any kind of rating is when it shows you at the top.
Today I received a bit of a review from the first male reader of my book, 'Goa Traffic' available at all good online retailers - sorry had to get that in- (husband aside) he said something along the lines that the beginning was slow but was now getting interesting. I will wait for the final review but it is nice to see a man reading it and will be good to hear the result. the beginning is more catered for women I guess, or maybe it is just a slow start.
Today I am annoyed by the amazingness (I know this is not a word) of other blogs that I have seen from writers. They look more like websites with interesting topics and a gazillion comments going on. I somewhat feel the simplicity of my blog is not really inspiring much commentary, but my traffic flow - I think- is fairly good- so are people not commenting because they don't feel like it- but just reading it to see what I am musing about on a particular day? or is my blog that un-inspiring/thought provoking that people don't have much to say.
A feeling of negativity washes over me but I let it, I let it wash away. I am pretty happy with my blog, the way it looks- and what I write- well I cant help that. What I am doing though is creating a website- as soon as I manage to sort the details of that - I will be up and running and hopefully it will be simplistic and 'me'. That is all that I can hope for. But there is a niggling question at the back of my mind that asks whether I should upgrade my blog to something a bit more flash?!
