Blogging and watching stats since Jul-2013, I’ve noticed a pattern on my blog. The latest three posts get the most attention, in of course descending order. What I’ve noticed is that readers will read the latest the most, and then it diminishes from there. Same with likes. Occasionally you’ll get a few that dig deeper, or you’ll have posts that Google favour as part of their equation.
Sticky posts could be an answer, but then there’s a risk of only having one’s stickys read !
Also if I write something I wasn’t all that happy with, (or my readers weren’t – I can tell !), it’s pretty much forgotten once I’ve put three posts on top of it …
So my questions is – Are you only as good as your latest three posts ?
PS (Bill Clinton is my celeb name for this post … for fun you may think up a tenuous connection if you like, please keep it clean or otherwise I may not be able to post)
