Today’s prompt asks about a post that didn’t connect with readers. Sometimes it is hard to know what people want to read about. My most read posts are about pregnancy and weekly bump updates. Unfortunately, I could not keep my wife pregnant forever nor would I want to…just so we are clear on that. She, I’m sure, is also thankful that her 9 months as a body sacrifice came to a beautiful bouncing baby girl end! After consulting WordPress, I found out that my least popular post was from last year and very early in my blogging life.
The post was about a wonderful weekend we spent in North Carolina with Lisa’s side of the family at the Strawberry festival. Lisa and I had just started our baby making journey. We were waiting for menstrual cycles and what not. I guess the post was more of a diary entry. Since it was so early in my blogging, it had a very limited audience.
Whether a post gets read once or a hundred times, the hope is that whoever read it takes something away that helps, heals, humors or provides hope. So I would never consider any of my posts flops. Maybe I’ll put my foot in my mouth, maybe I’ll contradict myself, maybe I’ll make a bad joke, or maybe I’ll write a viral post but it’s all me.
