I've been wondering if those of you who visit this blog - the few, the proud, the slightly off-kilter - would mind answering a few questions. You see, I've been wondering what I can do to get you to comment, and what else I can do to bring more visitors. The more the merrier, right?
What brought you here?
What brings you back?
If you only stop here every once in a while, what would encourage you to come by more often?
I know I spend a lot of time talking about writing - after all, that's the purpose of The Writing Spectacle in whichever incarnation you enjoy - but are all the posts about the biz turning you off?
I know I used to get more comments on posts I ranted during or those when I needed some encouragement. I stopped writing those kinds of posts since the transfer to this new home because I was feeling too negative. However...
Since I stopped ranting, do you find yourself more or less inclined to visit? Because I can totally rant again. In the words of Dennis Miller: I rant, therefore I am. I can also spend more time writing about worrying over the biz - lord knows I do it enough in my head.
What do you think of the new scheduled blog topics: the Weekly Update on Friday, Saturday's Super Site, and Sunday Book Review (even though I missed this past week - I was busy reading)? I put them in because I get fewer hits Fri-Sun, so I figured those were good days to try something new.
And lastly, if you're a habitual lurker, what keeps you from commenting?
I'd turn this into a contest, but my last contest kinda flopped, so I'm leery about trying it again. Let's just say whoever comments on this post will have my appreciation and leave it at that.
