One of the most amazing things I have discovered on WordPress is that there are those people who can stay away from their blog (an announced hiatus; the blog’s administrator informed their readers that they were going to be away from their blog for a particular period) and their blog received a large amount of traffic in their absence.
How many people do you know can take a hiatus (some time away from blogging) and receive a large readership while they are away?
My friend, Alex Jones is one of those people; his readers LOVE him.
Another friend who has a very loyal audience is, Alastair Forbes. When he took some time off from his blog, he still had countless visitors daily (Hey, Alastair. Your flag counter widget doesn’t lie).
Hmmm. Maybe, I should try that and see what happens (Oh, I can just hear some of you saying in protest, “Renard, don’t even think about it!” Don’t worry, I am the king of scheduled posts; so if I am ever away, you will always have something new to peruse).
Part of having a successful blog is: having a loyal audience and fortunately, there are bloggers who are blessed with a loyal fan base.
