Not every post will be a hit

Anyway … I was really unsure what to write about today. I’ve been having some difficulty coming up with topics that I want to write about this year (I don’t think the university workload is helping), so I decided to look back through all my old posts. I got to see the ones that did well and the ones that didn’t, and that got me thinking about the post I did last weekend, which didn’t get many views or likes. Sadly not every post will be a hit, and that can really hurt. But despite that, you can’t let that stop you from enjoying blogging!
