Am I talking to myself?
I have written several blogs, but while I feel better in myself for venting my feelings on here, I can’t help but wonder if anybody is reading my efforts?
What do I need to do to generate some interest and discussion? If you are reading, even if you think it is rubbish, please leave me a comment. That is the only way I will learn. Go on, you know you want to.
The blog I need help with is mrkfdevlin.com.
No, I don’t want to.
Your stats will tell you if people are reading your blog. The forum will tell you how to increase that number not if you ask, but if you search. There are more than a thousand tips already here on raising your readership.
Forgive me, I have no clue about stats and I will take your advice. Thank you.

Make sure you comment meaningfully on many on other blogs with similar content, knowing that this is the slowest traffic period of the year.
