How To Lose a Third of Your Readers (Page Views) in Five Easy Steps

I don't know what's going on but ever since Saturday, and everyday since, I appear to have lost 30% of my page views, every day.  Serves me right for telling

Nickie @nickie72 and Jax Blunt @liveotherwise

that I was doing well on page views.

You CAN jinks a good thing you know...

Heard of pride before a fall? Well that's me... LOL

It could be because I said in this post, that I don't have much time for this awards silly season.


It could be because I showed in this post, that THIS is what I look like when Aaron catches me off guard - he's learned how to use the camera and I don't always get chance to pose...


It could be because I showed in this post, that THIS is how overweight I look :-( when Aaron catches me off guard - he's learned how to use the BLOGGIE video camera, and I don't get chance to put my M&S version of Spanx on.

So either my readers are wrapped up in the awards and don't like it that I am not OR, they thought I looked good naked, and have run away in terror that I don't (see points (2) and (3) above).  The boudoir bump shots were taken in 2010 though and A LOT has happened (and been consumed) since then.

So, lovely readers who are left................ sorry I don't no longer look like my Twitter avatar, but hey looks aren't everything right?!?!?!?

Anyway, we are now having PIZZA for dinner, so don't look like there's any detoxing going on today...

Due to me having a job interview today, I was up at 6 a.m. to do the required PowerPoint presentation.  Felt like a lot of effort for a job paying less than half what I was paid prior to redundancy, but looks like the recession is effecting my worth....  Affirmation time methinks!

I don't know what I would be left with after paying for childcare, travel and lunches etc... but needs must... I hope the Universe looks after me.  I am going to pray my socks off tonight.

I hope life looks up soon.  I seem to be on an emotional rollercoaster...

See you in the dreamtime.

  1. stats go up n down all the time liska, I wouldn't worry about it being people seeing your videos and running off!

  2. I doubt it has anything to do with you - my stats have significantly dropped on my other blog - have no idea why???

  3. My stats have dropped by about a third too - tragic numbers, no idea why either. Then suddenly they randomly double from the norm. Can't work it out. Thought maybe everyone had decided it was rubbish!

  4. well we are still here reading. I never even knew about stats before blogging so we make an effort not to even think about it, never knew about the awards either so again we just remember that we started blogging for us and for our family and not worry about the stats side of it.

  5. As has been said previously, I wouldn't fixate too much on stats and viewing figures. Your blog posts area always natural and very much in your voice. The drop-off may have been to a number of spam accounts being deleted or a website that links to you not doing so any more (or maybe offline at the moment).

    Just keep on doing what you're doing and forget about who's reading :-)

    PS. Thanks for the link to my Twitter account. It should come with a parental warning I think haha!


Drop me a line, and I will visit you right back - as soon as I get chance. Thanks for your comment.
