Shaping this Blog

Into my fourth month of daily blogging and I find myself, scouring the blog stats and comments looking for trends.  Should this matter?  One friend told me just write the blog and do not care whether anyone reads it.  Well actually I think he said do not worry if no one reads it.  After moving past the 100 mark on the blog count, I wonder how many of the more seasoned bloggers worry about their comments or statistics? 

Sometimes I find myself trying to duplicate successfully viewed blog posts and that can be a difficult thing to do.  After carefully studying all of the trends in my blog, I realized that the days that I had more views were not necessarily better blog posts, but they were tagged with the #SQLPASS hashtag, meaning simply that more people were exposed to the message.  However, with etiquette in mind, I cannot simply add that hash tag to every blog post if it does not apply to SQL PASS.  Maybe all this is much ado about nothing.  Maybe I should just write the post and move on.

All of this boils down to my desire to be a better blogger, to share more information, and ultimately become an MVP.  It’s a long road, but well worth the journey.  Thanks for taking the road with me.  Enjoy!
