You spend 3 months watching your WordPress statistics bumbling along the horizontal axis close to zero.
Some traffic dribbles in. The graph accelerates into 10’s of hits daily. You feel better. You will persist with this blogging experiment for a little longer.
At this rate, it may soon be time to consider a proper blog using WordPress.org and Adsense to make the millions that eluded me during the dot com boom.
Then those pesky developers from WordPress.com alter the Y-axis dynamically, on the fly without even asking so the statistics now start at 40 and the graph looks just the same.
Life is cruel.
