Scope out the statistics on your blog..you may be surprised to learn the one you labored over, researched and rewrote to make it valuable to others may be the blogs that surprise you on lower views. Beyond how many comments, scope out the numbers on your blog and be surprised. I had one about something as obscure as saying the same thing but in the local way of expressing it that was popular which I did not realize until taking a peek at the behind the scenes numbers. Or one blog on a solar system in Northern Maine's Aroostook County. Any one else in Rainland find the same puzzler?

Or go live with your blog during drive time, prime time insertion.
