25th January, 2018
In the morning I was all set to study. I had made up my mind that I will study today. I even started studying. But then MOM sent me to take a bath. I was not really in the mood for a bath but I had to. After having a bath I was all refreshed and a normal guy would study in a good mood. Instead I went on the web and checked my site stats. Surprisingly I had no views today. I was unhappy (I don’t know why? after all the purpose of a secret diary is to be a secret). So I was searching some ways to promote my site. Thus I found out ‘Reddit.com‘. I made an account and posted my latest page of Diary on a subreddit. Now I only had to wait and viewers will come poring through.
Well it happened just that but it was not as good as I expected. People downvoted me on reddit and started spamming me. Immediately understood these people don’t like my content. People reported my content and actually said I am a bot who posted these links.
I was actually fine with that. I did not talk any action, just left it there as I was getting views. Today we crossed more than 1200 views total. And more than 200 viewers now. It was all going well in spite of all the downvotes when…………. I was searching for some cool pics when I received a message. It was a verification code for WordPress. I have this two step verification process in which you need to put the verification code to access the account settings. I wasn’t using the account so I suspected that my account might be getting hacked. I quickly went to my account and searched for any traces or irregularities. Everything seemed normal. But I am not sure if my site is hacked or not. I received another verification code. Now I was certain hackers are seriously gonna bring my site down. And all this was pointing towards downvotes on reddit. I believe that someone read my Diary through reddit and disliked it so much that they decided to bring the site down. Before that could happen I backed up all my data. Luckily my site is live and hopefully clean. I ran a bunch of tests to search any malware but nothing was found. My site is clean.
Promptly I deleted my reddit account. I did not want any views from reddit. Even after taking the link out I was receiving viewers. We reached almost 60 unique viewers and 70+ total views today. Its just been January but I have more than 950 views as oppose to only 248 views in whole 2017 year. Also we had only 122 viewers in 2017 but 118 viewers just in January. Still we have 6 days left for January; I am certain we will cross 1000 views this month. But still no likes. We have 21 likes in 2017 and still none in 2018. I really need to work on my content I feel.
Anyways I made another reddit account but really not sure what to do. I am scared to share my Diary link again. Maybe after a while I can but I really don’t want to.
Good Night Diary.
