I’ll never read my blog statistics again

I seldom check my blog stats, but I stumbled upon them today when I was clicking on my dashboard randomly. Turns out those culture critiques I wrote to kill time are more popular than articles that actually meant something to me.

It’s kinda frustrating. Have anyone heard of the 80-20 rule?

I started this blog because I thought it would be fun to write about silly things I observe in daily life, what I like and dislike about being someone who is always in some sort of a cultural shock/reverse cultural shock, one way or another. Gradually, blogging has become a thing I do to make sense of this crazy world that doesn’t make sense most of the time.

Right now, this blog really is about me and my worldview. I’m not gonna just write what people wanna read. I don’t want to be affected by those stats. When I write for readerships, that’s called work, and I get paid. That’s what I do from 9-6, not at 1am. LOL
