Another week of blogging and another precipitous fall. A kind of שבר תחת שבר:
I know full well that the tremendous (for me) traffic of Wednesday last had little to do with the quality of my last post. (Which, incidentally, was among my best work ever. At least in terms of thesis if not in terms of writing). I begged for, and got, cross posts and links from DovBear, R' Harry, Rafi and Tzig. A big Shkoyakh to them all. Additionally I'm a Mother and some guy on Facebook picked up Rise of the Mega-Yeshivos- the Coup de Grâce of Chasidification . And therein lies the problem.
After all these years of blogging I am still a Red-Tenter with nary a visitor unless outed to the J-Blogosphere by one of the successful blogs.
This infuriates me as I feel that the quality of my posts merit more of a readership. Perhaps if I had capitalized on my spike in readership of last week by posting once or twice daily since then i could actually have built a base. But, alas, real life has encroached and made daily posting impossible. O well. Chalk it up as yet another blown opportunity in an utterly misspent life. Being an unread blogger should be the greatest of my regrets. Snagville, if you're out there somewhere reading this, some words of support would be most timely and appreciated.
