Cancelled Blog-con

For those of you that follow my blog, you may noticed that yesterday I only had 1 blog post for my Madness Blog-con and that I didn’t post about the panels I attended. More than that, I took blog-con off the menus up top. Or you just found out now because I just told you.

I am stopping it. Why? I know I made a lot of promises to my fans and to people at Phoenix Comicon that I would be doing this, yet I am making the decision to stop. There are several reasons actually for me stopping it.

First and foremost, I am not getting that many hits. Sure, it is my first week, and if I spent time advertising it more and getting to other sites to say, “Look at what I’m doing”, I might get more hits. That is a lot of work. Plus, on top of that, posting everyday. I should have learned from AtoZ blog challenge, that takes a lot out of you. I also think I’m doing something like this at the wrong time. I have less than 30 followers and for this to be successful, I need at least 100 follower, in my opinion.

Because of how much time it takes to do that, I’ve ignored my writing. I reason that I could use the time away, but I’ve spent too much time away from it now and need to get back working on that. Plus, I’ve set myself a deadline that I intend to keep.

I also have other projects, such as Interviews, that I want to do. I want to make sure I keep on top of those projects, and doing the blog-con would hinder my efforts.

Perhaps the main reason, aside from my writing, is my Worldbuilding series. While at Comicon, an author who looked at my art, suggested I go on reddit and post my worldbuilding articles. I wish I remembered who said that. So I did, and the result has been amazing.

In the last 3 months, I have had 669 views on my worldbuilding articles. In the last 12 days, I’ve had 537. That is hard to ignore. I had hoped that eventually my worldbuilding series would be a success, and it now is. More than that, I’ve had record views on my site. During the month of April for my AtoZ challenge, my best day was 86 views in a single day. 12 days ago, I had 185. The next day was 113. Nearly 300 views in a two day period.

So, there is more need of me to do my worldbuilding series. That is what I want. Unfortunately, the blog-con interferes with that. I know I made a lot of promises, and I’m afraid I will have to break them. But I hope that those I met at comicon understand why I am doing it. Though given how underwhelming the event was, I’m sure no one will lose any sleep over it.

Lastly, my disability claim is moving forward. Right now I am not starting anything until my physical in a few days. My primary focus is on that. Plus, I need to find a Doctor to get the treatments I need.

As you can see, I have a lot on my plate, and I need to start taking things off. Blog-con seems like the obvious choice.
