VlogHog has been on the net for three years now. Still, plugging along hoping to catch on with a billion viewers a day. A lot has happened in that time. We changed presidents, Simon Cowell left American Idol, ER finally went off the air, and a lot of other stuff too.
How long will VlogHog be here? I don't know. Some days I get good traffic, some days I get no traffic. The blog has over a thousand incoming links. Does Google care? Hell no. To this end, I get almost no traffic from search engines. However, I do get traffic from pictures I link to. Go figure.
Some days I make dollars. Some days I make cents. Most days I make nothing. According to Alexa, 23 million sites get more traffic than I do. But due to a recent traffic spike, that will change. But traffic spikes are just that. Spikes. They go up and they will go down.
Once a had a traffic spike of 9000 visitors in one day and next day I had only 100 visitors. They should call them traffic teases.
On the days of August 20 and 21, I had a traffic spikes of 24,000 and 40,000 visitors. The most ever. But now things are back to normal. Meaning I won't be quitting my day job anytime soon.
So, the question is, "How long do you keep doing something you like even when there is no benefits of doing it?" That's a long question. Let me shorten it, "When do you stop blogging?"
The answer to me is when you start hating it. I don't mean ocassionally hating it. I mean hating it everyday. To date, I don't hate blogging. Really. I still want to figure out how to make a living at doing this. I still want to learn. I still want to grow.
My gut can stop growing anytime now.
So, VlogHog will still be here. Posting videos that make you laugh. I hope.
I will post more videos and articles if you care to watch and read them. I might even put up a bio on myself.
