What Happened?! A Word for the Rookie Blogger

I wrote a blog on Monday. The most viewers I’ve ever had was just under 100. I wrote a blog on Monday for my friends and friends of friends. It was off the top of my head but in an arena in which I am pretty knowledgeable. It was too long and not as clear or as concise as I would have wanted it to be. But I write for my friends and friends of my friends. I write for a crowd who don’t need me to dress for the occasion. It’s now Wednesday, early morning, and the blog I wrote on Monday has had more than 30,000 views.

What happened? How is this possible?

Many kind people have been appreciative and many kind people have not understood what I wrote. Many angry people have left angry comments. And a few calm people have left constructive feedback. And some have left comments I had to delete rather than publish. None of these people know who I am. How did they find my too long, off the top of my head, not as clear or as concise as it should have been blog?

If I had known this was going to happen I would have dressed up, cited my research, and perhaps hired a friend to edit for me. If I had known this was going to happen I wouldn’t have posted in my pajamas.

  1. I usually do not create a leave a response, however I read a few of the remarks on What Happened?!
    A Word for the Rookie Blogger – debbie bayer blog. I do have a couple of questions for you
    if you do not mind. Could it be just me or do some of
    these remarks look like they are coming from brain dead individuals?
    😛 And, if you are writing at additional social sites,
    I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.
    Would you post a list of every one of all your
    public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
