Should I Stay or Should I Go? The question will remain unanswered

The title of this post was inspired by the song titled "Should I Stay or Should I Go" by the band The Clash. You can listen to their track here on YouTube 

I found this title very relevant for today's post as this morning, I received a mail from my Blog subscription service asking me to top up my credits to continue the service. FollowIt; the service that my readers use to subscribe to my Blog and that helps them get the goodness of what I crap on the Blog in their inbox; no matter where you are in the world.

I've been blogging for a few years now, and I've always been a big proponent of using blog subscription services. I think they're a great way to stay up-to-date on your favorite blogs, and they can be a great way to promote your own blog as well.

But recently, I've been wondering if it's really worth paying for blog subscription services when you're not regularly updating your blog.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I've noticed that I'm not as motivated to update my blog as I used to be. I have a lot of other things going on in my life, and blogging has taken a backseat.

As a result, I'm not sure if I'm really getting my money's worth from my blog subscription services. I also tried to monetize the Blog by signing up for the amazon affiliate program and hoping that there would be some sales using the links and banners on the site. This was not with the expectation to make a zillion $ from the Blog site but to make enough $ to pay up for the cost spent on the site and it's services.

These costs include a custom domain that is the stuff/ link you use to get to my Blog site "THE SOMEBODY, NOBODY, ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY BLOG!" which is managed by Google Domains and yes the evident one that prompted me to write today i.e. FollowIt 

I'm also wondering if my blog subscribers are still interested in receiving my posts. I haven't been regularly updating my blog, and I'm not sure if they're still getting any value from my content.

So, what should I do? Should I continue to pay for blog subscription services? Should I stop updating my blog altogether? I'm not sure what the right answer is. Let me know your thoughts in your comments Should I Stay or Should I Go?

  1. here is what I feel.
    and as mentioned above, its about just what I feel and my personal opinion .
    I am a YouTuber, a content writer and a Podcaster. no matter how many videos I do, or how better I optimise them, though the quality of my content is good and special, my growth on the platforms are slow. in fact very slow.
    there were times I use to get upset when I look at other content creators creating content which makes no sense to the world and living gets viral and those channel's grow and grow to make millions.
    then the same question comes to my mind.
    should I stay or should I go!
    I take a deep breath and think about few of my serious subscribers, followers and readers who take out there time from their very busy schedule to consume my content.
    I think about those very few people who regularly come to my places on Internet to check if there is anything new from me.
    I think about that 1 person who is patiently watching my hour long content though he or she is already has so much to do on their tables.
    then I answer my own question, Should I stay or Should I go!
    yes, I should stay to respect the time of that one or may be many persons who have subscribed / followed me believing my content and make some sense out of it.
    now you think about it. do you respect your subscribers time and trust in your content?
