“Should I write blog posts that increase my traffic or that help change the way (a few) people think?” – Seth Godin
The thing about being a phlegmatic type is that one literally does go with the flow. Something interesting about astrology occurs to me, and I think, “oh, that would make a good blog post,” and then I’m on a roll and words come like water.
But have you ever tried to push water? You can guide it, build channels for it, remove stones from the riverbed; but unless it’s frozen solid, it’s going to go where it’s compelled, not where it’s forced.
I keep looking at blog rank sites. I just figured out that there are people who subscribe to this blog’s feed on Google Reader (thank you! who knew?). Sometimes seeing these numbers – especially seeing very successful bloggers’ numbers – leads me to the wrong conclusion. “I should write about celebrities, I should get more readers.” “I should post more often.” “I should force myself to think of things to blog about.”
I’m here to reassure myself that that’s not the point. I blog for me, and for those who think this traditional, no-sun-sign approach is interesting. I just want you, and me, to know what astrology can really do.
For those who read, who lurk, who comment, who retweet or refer or link or just nod and say to themselves, “huh, that makes sense…”
THANK YOU so much for reading.
