What do you think is the top three reasons that readers quit reading your blog or blog post? What are the top three reasons you stop reading? The same reason applies to everyone who surfs blogs. Check out this post and see if my reasons are your reasons.
I will start first with the most interesting reason I found.
People will quit reading your post if:
THERE ARE NO IMAGES IN THE POST
How is that for interesting? I try to include at least one in the post and a featured image for the post.
TOP 3 REASONS READERS QUIT YOUR BLOG
What is the third most popular reason people will quit reading your post?
They only get a tidbit of an idea of what it is about from your snippet.
Now I know I have been bad about this. I am trying to be intriguing but maybe I am being annoying instead? You guys should tell me this stuff!
The number two reason for blog reading cessation is:
The blog hasn’t been updated in forever.
That would do it for me and has many, many times. I simply click off if the post is not relevant or has an outdated date (like 2013-hello? anyone home? goodbye!)
And now for the number one reason people quit reading your post and very likely will unsub from your blog completely….
Too many blog posts.
Yes, too many. And I totally am guilty of this. I went through a sort of manic period recently and blogged every day for like a month. It was exhausting for me and caused me to lose readers I am sure. My sincerest apologies. If you will be so kind as to share my blog with others I promise to be more mindful of your time.
The good thing that will come from that much blogging is: you can get a book out of those posts if they are focused and solid content.
So, there you have it. The top three reasons people quit reading your blog.
DO you have other reasons? What are they?
