I switched from Blogger to WordPress a little over three months ago now. And while I am pleased with the switch, it looks like people are losing interest in my little slice of the internet. Page hits are down, markedly down since I switched to the new website and blogging software. A rather precipitous drop in fact.
Oh well. I will continue trudging along. I suppose a large part of that for the past few weeks comes from the continual outages from Dreamhost. Apparently my hosting provider is having severe network snafus, and power outages to boot.
I don’t think I am extraordinarily vain, but it is a little distressing to see the ever increasing readership peak and then plummet. Makes me wonder if I am growing stale. Then I realize most of those hits were just random Google searches and not any sort of regular readership. This new layout does not have the archive links the old page had down the side, which means once something slips off the front page Google can’t follow links to find it anymore and that content is no longer included in the great and all knowing Google Dance. I guess I better look into adding those links back if I am really serious about increasing my page hits.
