"Write for yourself" and other good tips
My favorite bits of advice in Tim Bray's meta-blogging post: "write for yourself", "be intense", "lighten up", and "math is hard". I remember when I used to get hung up on how much I was getting read or being linked, but I'm mostly getting past that and just enjoying writing and getting ideas out there to flourish (quickly or slowly) or fail (the faster the better).

Good advice! I stopped bothering with tracking about 5 years ago. The best feedback I get is from people who talk to me because of my blog, about what from my blog made a difference to them, and the collaborations that resulted.
