The Ultimate Blog Challenge Has Finished

Finally!

It has been really hard to find the time to write one post a day. I suppose it would also depend on the month and this one for me has been hectic. All of them are...

I thought it was going to be harder to find topics to write about, the length and the amount of code in the posts have also decreased a lot during this month to be true.

The idea of the challenge was that if you post often your blog will get more visits. I can tell you that's not true.

I suppose, if you have a blog where people use to come and your posts are interesting you'll get them back more often if you post more, but in my case I only get a couple of visits from searches in Google Bing refuses to index the blog for some obscure reason and posting more doesn't really make a difference.

Writing about topics that are very actual helps. But if you are busy working in your projects a 125% of your time you don't get to do that many interesting things... I would really like to change that.

In the end the results of the Ultimate Blog Challenge in the visits of the blog look like this:


The first two weeks I had a lot of visits, I suppose from my fellow bloggers in the challenge, after that the amount of attention the blog draws has decreased to the usual levels. You see that peak? Yes, that one was me changing the template.

I have now a couple more of followers in twitter and not a single more subscription than I had last month.

Anyway I am happy to have been able to write the same amount I usually write in two years in just one month.

I used to think a lot about what I was going to write in the blog and what wasn't interesting enough and now it has become more natural. I don't think I am going to write one post a day anymore or not until I get paid for it somehow but I will definitely write more often.

I'm sorry for the twits and the messages in LinkedIn etc. In the other hand you don't hear from me that much in the social networks usually.

Back to normal now.
