Okay, let’s step aside and look at the blog from a different perspective. Well, I get occasional views at some of the newly-posted ones, most of them come from foreigners. Sure, call me a xenophobe but I won’t mince words. I highly doubt that those foreigners following me here will understand the things I post in this blog. When I started out, I used to be excited about foreigners following my blog. But as time passed, it became more of a “who the flying fuck are these people?” reaction.
Most of all, I’m disappointed at the low views the blog has been encountering recently – starting with the latest post. Blame it on the lack of avenues to promote posts, people despising long-copy entries, market saturation, or my blog not hopping on the bandwagon. I’ve been tempted to give this up many times as I’m tired of not getting any results. Another option would be to monetize the blog, but I don’t want to sell out and go where most bloggers are going. You know that feeling of wanting to pack up and throw in the towel for good after a bad day? I’m feeling that exactly right now.
On the positive side, I’ve unfollowed a lot of blogs lately – Filipino or foreign. I’m disappointed that people are turning WordPress into another Tumblr or Facebook.
I guess I’ll have to take a break; I don’t want to fuck up this time. Now I understand why CM Punk was disappointed at his failure to get a main event spot at Wrestlemania.
(AUTHOR’S NOTE: Just as I published this one, some foreigner followed my blog. Wow. Just wow.)
