Better to Push on? or Say Nothing?

Blogging works by Samantha Barnes,

Hello!  It’s been ages, too long in fact since I’ve been on my blog regularly, but that’s ok, better to wait until I bring something of use, than useless fodder? - or is it?

Blogging as a business or a service works.  The idea being that you write something, add in a lovely graphic and then your post goes on into cyberspace forever and ever is slightly mind-blowing  The thing is that this actually works.

My most ever successful post is this one Do You Work From Home? Dogs Help.  

& when I say successful, I really mean it.  This single post has bought me thousands and thousands of visitors to my site - still brings me visitors today and it was written over 2 years ago - blogging works.

But when you run dry of things to say - do you simply keep banging on or stop for a while?  I chose to stop - and guess what my traffic has   s l o w e d RIGHT down!!

So, if nothing else dear reader, take it from me, blogging as a small business/solo maker works.  Learn the bones of it and write…

My head is back in it, am I’m off.  See you on the next round.

What do you do when your mojo runs thin?  I’d love to know.
