I use a program called Google Analytics to track the visits to this here website, and I was noticing a slow but upwards trend. Then something happened after the first of the year. Either the visit tracker is broken, or no one is visiting my blog anymore. I sure hope that it is the former and not the latter.
I know that someone is aware of my little blog and the things I discuss here, especially the spammers who are hoping that I am idiotic enough to publish their comment hawking some nefarious product no one really wants to buy. I get about one of those comment attempts every couple of weeks, usually for an older post.
It is discoveries like this one that makes me wonder if I am beating my head against a literary rock. I write to share with others, and I now wonder if I am wasting my time here. I know I can see more fruitful ground over at The Spark, and it was this little blog that helped me get my start there, but should I continue with Sylvie is a Blogger? Should I close the door here and open up another elsewhere? Or should I say chuck it all, and keep writing, even if I am the only one who ever reads this thing? At least I have a free place to store what ramblings I pen.
