Either you think the writings there are beautiful, or you don't read it. Literally no one has been reading it. If I share a link on a Facebook page, no one clicks on it. If I share a link on Twitter, few people click it. No one is able to click the links on Instagram and it's a hassle for many to copy-paste. Why bother writing on such holy things when no one is benefiting? Even the people who claim my writings are beautiful, don't even read the damned blog.

I'm done writing. It's either going to end up there being so many people viewing it that writing becomes a work, or that I'm going to be perpetually tricked into thinking my writings have brought benefit to anybody when they haven't. I don't want to do it anymore. It's my choice. It's my decision.
Why did you start a blog?  I know some people who start a blog because they are experts in a field and they write their accumulated experiences and insights, some of which have a common thread with current events and daily life.  Other people start one as a means of sharing new life experiences with friends and family, like travellers or students, new mothers, etc.     But no one with a blog has any control over who reads it, nor whether people like the content. Perhaps you shouldn’t approach your blog as what other people see today.  Do it because you want to capture your work, your life experiences, your beliefs for your own edification and for the sake of posterity.  Who can say who will get great value from it in a year or two, or ten, or 50.
"Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" On hearing this, Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."  Matthew 9:10-14
