My dear team Blogchatter :
This was supposed to be a roundup of my experience with Blogchatter’s MyFriend Alexa campaign. I decided to write an open letter.
Please take it in the right spirit .
‘I am taking my Alexa rank to the next level with Blogchatter’
Taking part in blogging challenges is not always the best reason to blog. While it does increase your bandwidth, exposure, viewership and ultimately improve your Alexa rank, these, reputed and established bloggers have assured me, are not the reason why you blog.
Yet, this will be the third blog challenge I’ll be attempting this year. The first was the Write Tribe Festival of Words hosted by Corinne of WriteTribe. The second was by BAR-A-THON hosted by Shailaja and this will be the third.Week 2 has begun and to be honest I’m quite disappointed. My ranking today is 102, 231 in India and 814,437 Globally.
I can’t remember what it was when the challenge began but I do know that the visits and views on my site have not changed a bit save for the one day (5th Sept) when the views were 118 and the number of visitors 37.
And all this after diligently visiting, commenting and sharing every post on the reading list from day ONE.
But what was even more disturbing was the letter that came in my mail box today which informed me You have been falling behind target,
I was most annoyed and went through all the sites below to see whether or not I had complied and requested my name be removed from the challenge since I don’t have that much time to waste.
I do most of my blogging on the iPhone and the Alexa rank tracker does not download on my browser. So this means that my effort on the iPhone has gone to waste.

Good heavens! This is getting far too tedious. I’ve just spent the better part of the morning auditing these blogs and I cannot write any more comments as doing this means re-arranging the layout . I am not a computer geek and I don’t have any more time to spend on this job which I have done between bathing and feeding granchild, washing clothes and cooking lunch.
