How different points of view can differ for different people.
Looking at the same subject, NUMBERS.
Numbers are my last priority. I’ve never been taking care of how many visitors my website has. I’ve never been taking care of how many likes I have or comments or retweets. I’ve never been interested to do this job for money. I mean, we all work for money, but I’ve never been selling my time or my job for something I disagree.
And that’s a problem in this business.
Because all the people around me, all of them take the numbers like the very first priority of their job.
Every single day when I talk with them it’s all about how many visitors we had the day before on the website, projections about how we can turn the website in a very profitable business and so on.
Alexa ranking, followers, social networks, likes or dislikes. Posting with advertising messages inside, cooperating with brands and so much more.
Everything comes back to the numbers and you can imagine how difficult is for me and for them considering that I don’t care about social networks or likes. I don’t really care what other people think about me and I don’t really need to be a party man.
I have full respect for everything I just mentioned, but I’m just a very private person and I don’t need social networks to know how good or bad I am.
I try to do my best and I always think it’s not enough and I can do better, that’s my philosophy of life, with myself, with my daughter and with my horses.
Nothing for me it’s a matter of numbers but I respect all the people making the numbers a priority.
So, everything like twitter, instagram, facebook or pinterest and tumblr can mean money. I get it.
And this website is ranking high because a lot of people are coming back.
I started years ago not thinking to make any money and I’ll keep going that way.
I can of course talk about what I see and what I use like pro tools, but I must be free to tell the truth.
Numbers we can’t really live without…
