So I’ve come to the conclusion that the majority of people (well a fair few) who find me here at yinyangmother do so completely by accident when looking for someone (or something) entirely different.
Mostly they come here when looking for a woman in the shower (not me, I’m fairly sure they wouldn’t be thrilled to see me in the shower). This is all down to this post I wrote.
I could have come to this conclusion a long time ago, had I really studied my google analytics, or actually admitted what they reveal. But unlike Emily from Have a Laugh on me, who happily chuckles at the search terms used to find her site (think hot naked man and chocolate pool) I preferred to live in happy oblivion, than get the joke that’s on me.
When you just focus on unique visits and page views you can take pride when stats start to climb (or in my case, ebb and flow – very yin yang like).
Thankfully there is a slow and arduous mountain climb in the right direction, but with a river of random visitors running out to sea, gone, never to be seen again.
She (that would be me) who believes in serendipity might like to kid herself that the random punters who find me (or my site) are not in fact random but that, as the Chinese proverb goes:
‘There is an invisible red thread that connects those who are destined to meet across time, space and circumstance. The thread may stretch and tangle, but will never break’.
Sadly the thread breaks with a click of the mouse all the time before we can even start the conversation let alone establish an unbreakable bond.
Ah, but occasionally we connect.
Now I could do a number of things:
A) Create a better blog
B) Just be better at blogging, blog more
C) Promote my blog better in a myriad of ways to get more traffic
D) All of the above
I am committed to doing the above, but I’m concentrating on making my blog work for people who care about it – and judging by comments, that’s a few of you.
I’m committed to genuinely engaging, with you, the people who are reading this blog post and especially all of you who read regularly.
What do you really want?
I would love for you to tell me, in relation this blog, and in relation to your life!
Do you want more practical tips on balance? More yin-yang thinking about how to find contentment and gratitude? How ideas on how to cope with change? Do you want a focus on self-care? Ideas on how to find your passion and flow? Kid’s meditation information, balanced parenting ideas? Thoughts on how to get rid of mother-guilt? Or simply stories of how I muddle my way through that you can relate to, and sometimes laugh at?
I’m gearing up for a blog make-over to match my own makeover (yogi to yogini update – just over 2kg down, slow and steady).
If you could spare a moment to leave a comment, I’d really appreciate it.
PS – Image may not be me in the shower.
