Did you enjoy yesterday’s GigglePotThursday? Don’t forget that you can send me in your funnies at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have been taking note of my Blog views (as I do every day) and in the last week I have noticed a significant drop in numbers of readers. I need your advice, and your opinion. Is what I am writing about boring? Or irrelevant to every day life? I need your feedback here so I know what to write about and whom to direct it to.
My blog was, aside from being a personal challenge to myself, intended to be something that people looked forward to reading, but didn’t have to take a long time out of their busy schedules to read. I actively try to keep my blogs to around 500 words (effectively, a 5 minute read) and although sometimes I do ramble on, I believe that this fact is important to maintain my readers. What do you think of this? Should they be kept minimalistic, or do you think I need to expand on them more?
Are my blogs too dark to enjoy? I have been told that my writings can become quite dark and twisted. I am working against this as we speak, and while I do, at times, succumb to the darker side of my nature I do try and avoid it. Is this one of the reasons my readers have dropped? What is your opinion?
I am not a naturally “funny” person, but I do try to place some humour within my posts to keep you entertained. Is this not working, do I need more, or should I just forgo any attempt of humour? I know that my own personal view of “funny” does not correlate with many others, so I do tend to avoid it a little bit.
I try to keep my posts relevant to todays world, with posts such as patriotism, autism, my GigglePotThursdays, Flashbacks to the 80’s and 90’s; I speak of regrets and family and things I hope to achieve. Are these not as relevant as I think? How do you think I can better “sell” this blog, and keep you, my important readers, intrigued enough to want to come back?
What topics do YOU want to read about? I have ones coming up on “Old Wives Tales” , as well as “Austalians and their Dreams.” but if this is not what is going to keep you coming back, what will?
I have been told that my Blog is very one-sided. Would it intrigue you more if I was to explore both sides of a topic? I have to admit I would love to give it a try, If I was to be able to make it interesting for you to read. It would definitely we a learning experience for me as a writer.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send me your feedback. I really do value your input and your ideas on what ways I could improve the Blog.
Lots of Love,
