What Would You Like To Read Here?

If you don’t mind, I would like to ask you all for your help. See, I would like to make this blog better and I think you can help me. I get roughly 70 unique page views here per day, and I know those aren’t always the same people, I do know I have at least a few regular readers. These are the people I think can help, my regular readers, people I would gladly call my friends. I’m not asking a lot, just for a moment of your time.

My question for you is this: what do you want me to write about? What types of posts do you like best when you visit my blog? Excerpts of my fiction? Posts about my daily life? Posts about my daughter? Posts about writing contests? Writing advice? Something else? If you have any thoughts on this matter, please leave them in the comments of this post or use the “Contact Me” link at the top of this site.

I appreciate all of you who visit here and those of you who leave comments, because without you, this wouldn’t be nearly as much fun.

  1. I like reading about real life but like someone else said, you should write what pleases you.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I know what you mean about gopher road.

  2. I’m a fan of maintaining the variety of topics you post about here. Unfortunately, a broad topic base tends to translate into fewer readers (unless your name is Scalzi) but what I like about your blog is the fact that you seem to write about whatever’s important at the time.

  3. I like your posts on life and your daughter, and also about writing in general. At the moment, I don’t have much time to enter writing competitions so I don’t tend to read those posts as much but it’s good that you post about them. If I was doing different stuff with my writing I would find the information useful.

    I’m always confused about the difference between page hits and unique hits. I always have a really high visitor count for the page hits… and a really low one for unique hits! I was wondering if that was something I ought to worry about?!

  4. Like Helen, I don’t read many of your posts about writing competitions – especially flash competitions – as I don’t have time for them. I have, however, seen links that interest me, so I’d encourage you to continue providing links.

    Sorry, but I rarely read your fiction, but I rarely read anyone’s online fiction, so please don’t take that personally. It’s mainly due to time issues and not likely reading stories on the computer.

    I love reading about your writing experiences and your life in general…and I’m always looking for ways to improve my own writing, so writing tips are always received well too.

    I hope that helps.

  5. I just started reading recently, so I’m probably not the best one to answer this, but I think you should write whatever you happen to feel passionate about at the time.

    And for the record, I actually like the writing contests. Just thought I’d mention that, since they aren’t getting any love, and it would be a shame to lose them.

  6. Barb – I’ll continue to stop by. I like what you’re doing over there.

    Helen – I understand about the contests. You have finished a novel, though, so you have more important things to do ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, you get far more comments over there than I do, so I would just concentrate on that.

    Karen – thanks for the feedback. It does help.

    Rob – I added a link to your blog in the blogroll. I will continue to mention the contests, don’t worry.
