You know that feeling, whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, where you’ve started work on a story and you kind of know where it’s going? That’s how I’ve been feeling about my blog.
I started blogging almost five months ago and this post will be number seventy-one. In the past few weeks there have been some interesting things happening.
I’m getting found, not by name, but by topic on a fairly regular basis. One person even left me a nice comment on a post over a month old. Now I know not everyone who finds my blog is reading it. Maybe they see my post isn’t the answer they were looking for and move on to other search hits. But some are interested enough to click the “about me” page.
All this has got me looking at my blog and asking myself if there’s anything I can do to make it more interesting?
Well, content is king. That’s why I read the blogs I do. On that front, I think I’m doing pretty good. I’m way more comfortable with my blogging voice and it’s resulted in some post you guys responded awesomely to. (Is awesomely a word? WordPress didn’t flag it in the spell check, but it DID flag “wordpress”. Weird and funny.) So, it seems like I’ve got the content, just have to make it easy to access.
I think in the future I’ll add some more menus up top to make finding the good content easier. Seventy-one posts is a lot to sift through and the number will only grow.
Beyond that, I want to give this blog more direction to attract like-minded readers while still providing good stuff to you guys with me now. Which brings me to my questions for you all:
What do like about this blog?
Was there a topic that really jumped out?
What would you like to see me write more about?
Is there anything I’ve never talked about that you’d like me to? I do love discovering new things I never knew I liked. Please, the virtual floor is yours.
