This may read strangely, but there is one thing about fitness blogging that fascinates me and makes me quite happy; the traffic on my blog crashes every weekend. In fact, there was a time a while back where I took the hint and only bothered posting inspirational clips from YouTube on Saturdays. As my cycling mileage has gone through the roof, that’s changed quite a bit – there’s a lot to write about now and I usually need those two days just to fit everything in.
Now with the WordPress App on my iPhone, I rarely spend any time sitting behind the computer on the weekend. Truth be told, unless I’ve got work that absolutely must be done, I can’t stand firing it up – it’s too much like work, even if it’s just to check up on new posts from all of the blogs that I follow. Of course, with the Reader that comes in the App, I don’t have to. I can handle my entire blog, all of the comments, posts and stat checks right on my phone.
I’m sure there are people out there who are bummed if their traffic dips, particularly on two specific days every week but in the group that I run in, that’s good news. We’re all out training, exercising and getting the best out of life, and that’s what it’s all about, not sitting behind a computer trying to figure out how many virtual friends you have.
