I found this blog by a successful blogger named Jon Acuff, that made an encouraging statement about statistics and blog traffic: April 11, 2012
"…blog traffic is a continual source of anxiety if you’re a blogger. You never feel like you have enough, no matter what amount you have. So today, I thought I’d share a really simple secret about how to stop worrying about blog traffic.
And despite telling my 9th grade math teacher I’d never need math when I grew up, this secret is all about the numbers.
According to statistics, there are 2.4 billion people online around the world.
There are an estimated 450 million blogs online.
If you divide the number of people online by the number of blogs online, each blog should have approximately 5.3 readers.”
