This morning when I checked my blog the statistics “yelled” at me saying that there are no incoming links but “it’s okay – there is no rush…”!!

In fact I did not expect anything else – how could anybody read a blog or link to it if they do not even know it exists? There is definitely no rush.  But still the message forced a very unexpected emotional reaction upon me. I felt like a teenager again. As a teenager you always do something wrong or feel wrong (out of place or in other words like an alien). It is this feeling which would activate a “what is it this time” processor in my brain when my mother would raise her eyebrow (in a very special way): a fast check of all the things I really did or might have done “wrong”, trying to pin-point the one she might be aiming at. Oh, it is only about the the dishes after lunch… 

I felt exactly the same when I read the message on my dashboard. Do we really need to feel like kids again just because we are no “masters of blogging”? Is it really necessary to be constantly reminded that we have not deliverd enough, that the result could be better?

 As in any other way of communication or business, writing a blog makes only sense if somebody reads it. Or maybe not? Maybe this blog will be the best kept secret in the blogosphere and then one day …
