Having put out over 2500 posts in my two years blogging I find it quite interesting to reflect on what has proved most successful in terms of number of views and what hasn’t.
there does not seem to be any rhyme of reason to it. You put out a number of similar posts and get the usual number of views and then suddenly one will take off and receive lots of attention. For some reason it seems to capture people’s imagination.
It makes me certain there is a zeitgeist (or some similar mass psychological process) at work.
It is weird.
My most successful blogs in terms of numbers of views have been:
Roy Harper Dissident on trial
Roy Harper acquitted but where is the justice in this?
Thank you Scotland
Buffy St Marie – Carry it On – Lyrics of defiance with hope.
I’m Not Like Everybody Else – Ray Davies and the Kinks – Lyrics and how they impacted.
Anecdote – Hitching across the Pennines to A Roy Harper gig
By no means were these my best posts but they were all among the best. There was something about them that captured people’s imaginations. They propelled themselves into the stratosphere.
What was that essence that sparked the shamanic zeitgeist and enticed people to check out and pass on that particular post?
