I do not want analytics to influence my writing
I do not want analytics to influence my writing.
Obviously, it’s nice to see that my blog posts are popular. On the other hand, it’s disheartening to see that some of my blog posts have been super quiet in terms of viewership. However, I do not write because I want viewers. I write for myself first and foremost.
Therefore, I am removing this additional dataset from my knowledge bank. Therefore, from today, I will not know which blog posts are popular and which ones are not. Frankly, I do not need to know.
I like this post by MereCivilian. It serves as a reminder of why I write this blog. It's the space where I can freely express my thoughts, ideas, and passions. The keyword here is “freely.” We should write whatever the fuck we want without being influenced by whether our content will garner views or not.
