Just checked my stats on Google analytics and one lesson is absolutely clear. In the absence of a huge, committed following its absolutely essential a 'young' blog just get stuff out there pretty much every day.
A couple of days away and suddenly three days in a row with 0 views. Lets face it, I doubt anyone starts one of these things actually hoping no one pays attention so that's not good.
So thing to note for young players (of which I am one) - always post.
