This is an interesting blog, right? Right? Hello, Out There!

Is my blog boring you? I am incredibly interested in Esq. tykes photos and their trials and tribulations and too lazy to wax on about my job insecurities. But I don't think my blogging public is as interested - Google Analytics says readership is down. My self-worth is completely tied into those numbers now that I am working to Not Compare Esq Tykes With Other Tots.

I've been mulling a posting about table food and how it is my Mount Everest but that's probably completely uninteresting, right? And don't get me started on how now I've realized that all those posts on breast feeding were the most boring ever - although at the time I thought they were Very Important.

To My Few and Very Special Loyal Readers: instead of offering a $1 a comment post I can only promise to say lots of trivial things about topics you enjoy. So, what do you WANT to hear about?

Oh, Mommy, Esq., You Are the Funniest and Most Clever Mommy Ever; We Love You Even If the Blogverse Doesn't

I am still reading with lots of interest! And whenever I go back and read ANY of my posts, I think they are boring and no one else would be interested in them but that's not so (and so it is with your posts).

I want to hear about whatever you are writing about!

Table food was a Mount Everest for us too. Alex vomited on table food until he was almost a year. I became an expert at recognizing his vomit face and catching vomit in his bib.

Please post more about how awesome your husband is.

Oh honey, post about what you love and you will be happy. Screw what everyone else wants. They can write their own blog. ;)

Hee, I've had to cool it on checking my stats as I've stepped back on how often I blog and taken a bit hit in readership. People are so demanding, always wanting actual new posts. Geez.

Let's hear about the food...you'll be glad you wrote it down as you'll be surprised the things you forget. My boys are only 4 years old, but my husband and I were recently forced to admit we have forgotten EVERYTHING about infants.

Stacey said...

Well, I may be biased because I'm family but I am very interested in everything you have to write about. I am 7 months behind you so I welcome all your tips and tricks. I even re-read old blog posts when I need advice. Darn, I sound like a dork, don't I?

As What A Card mentions about her own blog, a lot of my posts are more for me, to avoid forgetting all things infant. I want to be able to look back on these days down the road. So write about whatever you want, even if it doesn't seem objectively interesting. We are nowhere near ready for table food yet, so I'm interested to hear what you have to say about it.

I love your blog, and I am still reading with great interest. I am sure you have already thought of this - but is there any chance that readership being down might be due to people reading through RSS feeds and not always "linking all the way through." Just a thought.

Goddess in Progress said...

I'm still here. :-)

I'm going through a writing/topic rut, too, and my stats have also taken a hit. Alas, just post what you want, when you want. The mojo will come back.

Carrie said...

I read all you new posts even though I don't comment much! I even added your link to my blogroll over on foxtwins.com. My little ones are just a bit younger than yours, so I like seeing how they are developing.

What I always wanted to try was a "Day in the Life, in photos" post where you take pics from your prespective at least every hour during the day.

Jane said...

Hey there,

Just saying hi and that I'm reading even though I don't comment! :)

Personally I think it's your blog...write whatever you feel like writing about. And I can't wait to hear your Mount Everest stories about table food as we ARE SO THERE! Just scheduled an EI evaluation for this week to see if they have any helpful advice about the vomiting! So yeah...tell the bloguniverse to suck it!

Neve said...

Long time reader here, keep doing what you're doing!

I've been reading religiously since last summer. I have boy/girl twins who will be 6 mos on May 2. I'm TOTALLY comparing them to other tots their age and it makes me sad. We were 2 mos early and my little girl is at about 3 - 4 mos. for gross motor skills. She has plagiocephaly and torticollis and is going into a helmet next week. She starts weekly physical therapy tomorrow. Penny has different issues, but I feel your pain. I cried when you cried because she wouldn't eat. Please keep doing what you're doing... some of us need you!

Sotorrific Twins said...

I'd read about table food! And twin mommy tips - I always love those. I'm such a sucker for good advice. But you already knew that :)

ABS said...

Similar to Carrie's comment -- I always think it's interesting to read peoples' "a day in the life".

Let's face it, though, kids have developmental phases. Right now there may not be a whole lot of new material, but soon they'll be learning all sorts of new things and getting into all sorts of new trouble!

The readers that flit in and out will do just that.

Abby said...

Kristin, I agree with your sister Stacey (whose blog I read also since our due dates were exactly the same even though my daughter came three weeks early) -- I am happy to read about the baby stuff since it gives me food for thought from a more experienced mom. (No food pun intended!) That's my mom comment -- my therapist comment is don't let your self worth be tied to your blog readership! You're better than that! :)

Helen said...

If I promise to post on everything you say (even when I can't always contribute), will you promise to always post on mine? Cause you're about all the readership I get and my worth is tied to the two or three comments I get everytime:)

Anonymous said...

I am always reading your blog and I don't think that it is boring AT ALL! Please keep on doing what you have been doing. I love seeing the twins get bigger and hearing about their adventures. : )

Nancy said...

LOL you comment wh*re you ;) Just kidding ... I know what you mean!! I think commenting/readership is down everywhere...perhaps it's the weather.

I may not read every single day, but I try to! (And if I skip a day, I always back-read to catch up.)

Your blog, your topics. Screw the rest ;)

Shelley said...

I didn't start my blog until the kids were almost 10 months old. Wow, do I wish I had a blog from the beginning like you do! You'll love looking back and reading about table food when they are 20 months old and it's all a blur! :-)

By the way, I love your blog and read every single post! :-)

T. said...

I'm still reading - I'm a very loyal blog reader and commenter (when I actually have something to say)! I really wouldn't be so concerned about your Google Analytics - who cares? Delete the code from your page and blog away in peace!

The duchess enjoys seeing photos of her friends (and is still hoping to go to prom with Ned). She would comment but her gross motor skills just aren't there yet. This is a note from her typing on the keyboard: klkl

Boston Chef said...

Still reading as well! Love the tips, advice, and reading about real life twin issues. Keep on bloggin'!!

Monica Marino said...

I love reading all about the kiddos! Don't let Google get you down. I hope people still read my blog, too... sometimes it feels like posting out into space.
