It's true when people say "if you don't keep working hard, you'll fall no matter how high you have climbed" or maybe in another words, "even if you are the first few in the race, if you stop running, someone else will overtake you".

And I think it's happening to me.

I sometimes go into self-denial mode, but then there are also times when truth hits me and I realise that I'm really slacking too much. I stopped trying to be interesting or even put in as much effort because I thought you all readers will stay, because I thought that my readers wouldn't "change ship". But in reality, this kind of thing will never happen. Once something better comes into the market, consumers will flock towards the new product. It is like this everywhere, in every context.

It doesn't help that the blogosphere is rapidly widening now. More and more bloggers are popping up, and alot of them try very hard. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but I can see many other bloggers who put in alot more effort into their craft.

Unlike me T_T

But the thing is,
I'm feeling very comfortable this way.

I like having so many readers.
I like being recognised.
BUT im just not very into negative publicity. And that's also one of the reasons why I'm always so boring, and I try not to be controversial. I'm straightforward to friends but I watch my words in such a public site (that doesn't mean I'll lie. It just means that I not talk about it at all). I guess that's just my character. The only reason why I could build up my first batch of readers was only because at the time I started out, there were not that much blogs to choose from, therefore readers are stuck at reading mine. In another words, I was lucky.

When Raine told me how high-ranked I was afew years ago, and then compared to how lowly ranked I am now, I'll be lying if I say I don't care.

I don't want to create pops and bangs just to lure readers to my blog. I don't like to be such a scheming person. Yet, I hope my readers would be content with reading what I like to write about - my personal life.

Contradicting much?
Haa. 我實在想得太天真了﹗

Fyi: viewership didnt drop. It increased/remained stagnant. It's the rank that's dropping down and down cos there are many more hardworking bloggers popping up.
