How do you stay positive when your stats are down?


I've been feeling very optimistic about hubpages, seeing fairly steady gains in views and money. But the last 2 days my growing google traffic has completely collapsed. It gives me a small taste of what hubbers who have come to expect income from it must feel when their traffic goes south. If you've stuck out a bad patch, what kept you going?

    That's an encouraging story, thanks. I'm doing a couple of those write for money sites, not as much fun, but you do get paid. If this continues maybe I'll try that form.

    I hope that's all it is, all my lovely google traffic had evaporated overnight.

    Sure, hubs are not the most important thing.

    OH MY GOODNESS! How do you keep up with 3 websites, 8 blogs, social networks, writing sites???? I have HP and 3 blogs and I am always falling behind, on the blogs anyway. Out of curiosity? How often do you update your blogs?

    Thanks for the positive thoughts. It's not that it was a lot of money or anything. It just made me really happy seeing those steadily rising views. It really does feel like I've been slapped.

    It's not like it was a lot anyway, but still it takes the wind out of my sails.
