Health Blogging Month Day 4: After I Press "Publish"

What happens after you press "Publish"? Write about your post-blog-writing process. Do you immediately tweet a link? Email it to everyone? Re-read it for spelling errors?

What do I do after I press "Publish"?

It all depends.  Sometimes I'm very organised and have written days ahead - so "Publish" is just publish at the time I scheduled.

When it is published - I put the link on Facebook, which I have set up to automatically post the same to Twitter and Google+. 

If I know someone who has a particular interest in the topic, I'll email it to them. 

Then I obsessively check to see if anyone's read it! I think it's about being new at blogging, that I am still not completely convinced that what I have to say can add to any useful discussion. But I keep writing, because some people (just passed the 3000 page views mark) apparently have come back more than once to read what I have to say. (I've actually had more than 1000 page views in the past month - and I'm sort of wondering if that is actually good - any experienced bloggers want to enlighten me?)

I constantly look for feedback or comments, hoping to be able to engage my readers in a conversation, but very little actually appears in the comments.

So, at the moment, I'm in the position of looking for an objective way to measure whether I am actually achieving anything (apart from giving myself a hobby.)
