Interesting phenomenon

I am sure every blogger out there goes through what I am experiencing. Writing for a blog is truly writing for an audience - a largely unseen audience, but an audience just the same. The problem is, it does not feel like there is anyone out there reading this stuff. Which brings me to an interesting intersection of thought: do I treat this thing as a personal journal into which I can pour my innermost secret thoughts and feelings, do I start drumming up readership through bullying and bribery, or do I abandon ship entirely after just a week or two?

I don't think I'm good enough at this to merit drumming up readership just yet, and no matter how many people aren't reading it, the minute I post something really personal and/or incriminating, readership will spike and I'll end up the butt of jokes on late night television, so turning this thing into my own therapist's couch is out. And I don't want to quit it yet either. So, what to do? I am not sure. I shall contemplate and ruminate.
