They are interesting things, no? You get these views from random people, and if you’re good enough, you may get a lot of views. You can perhaps eventually make money off your blog if you advertise. You can have friendships with random people… But if you really think about it, is it worth time or effort? You may be a newcomer, or you may have been following this blog for awhile, but you may have noticed the decrease in posting on here.
You may follow another blog, and you may look at it, and say it’s a dead blog. That is, people don’t really post on it, and it seems at some point they just stopped posting on it altogether. This type of thing may disappoint you. I think decreases in blogging can be lead by a three things, not enough time, not enough interest, or restraint. Now, there are probably others out there, so if I you think of a good one, please comment 🙂
In the first case, one may not post on their blog simply because they don’t have the time for it. Life may get too busy, things may get in the way, or maybe they have made so many commitments that blogging takes the back seat.
In the second case, you may find that people lost interest in their blog. Perhaps they just don’t like the subject they were blogging about anymore, or they found something that is more interesting.
The third case is when something constrains you from blogging. Let’s say you have plenty of time to blog and interest in what you;re blogging, but you can’t blog. Perhaps someone is almost always on the computer you want to use, or maybe your computer was recently thrown out of a 50-story office building. 😛 There is case 3.
Now, you may be wondering why this blog here seems so quiet.
I would say it has to do with interest.
3d is a cool topic. However, there is more to life than 3d. One of the things is that I have been involved with my work on LEGO games. Also, I haven’t been doing a lot of Blender work lately. It may have disappointed you that you weren’t getting much updates on this blog. Are you glad to at least know some reasons? 🙂 I’m also thinking of creating a blog soon where I could stick stuff other than 3d. But then, there’s the other thing. I have this blog, unity scribe, and I’m on the legend team… That’s a lot of blogs, folks, and do you expect me to post frequently on all of those? You may even be checking Unity Scribe and are disappointed there aren’t much updates there.
I’m not closing down https://stopsecretdesign.wordpress.com/, or http://unityscribe.wordpress.com/, but please don’t be too surprised if you don’t see many updates… even if it’s for a long time. Ok? 🙂
Please, comment and give your thoughts. Have you stopped posting on one of your blogs? Is it for any of the reasons above? If you have answers to those questions, feel free to leave them below.
