Today is day 10 in my 20 posts in 20 days, and it has been a long journey for me. I didn’t truly realize how much work it would really take to provide interesting content daily. Based on this ‘experiment’, which I’ve had a lot of fun with, I think I’ll be changing how often I want to post.
When I first started I had it in my mind that it wouldn’t be often, say 3 times a month or so. I originally came up with this number because I believed that there wouldn’t always be new things to talk about, but I was wrong. I think it will be much easier for me to think of new topics, enough so that I can even do 2 posts a week, and split extremely long posts into several segments to spread it over the course of that week.
It should work out pretty well, and I want to thank all of you for visiting the page, telling friends, and sticking around with me. Each time I see my statistic page with number of page views each day going over 20 I feel great. Ive only done 9 posts so far, and most of it has been about me, my opinions on things, or my what I liked in the past. There’s been one or two opinion-based posts which will be the style of my blog in the future, “Things I Miss” and “Game Barriers” are examples for my future style.
For those curious about how I’ve been doing: if I exclude the starting days where I spent the day customizing the layout, I’ve spent 9 days blogging and I’ve hit 200 views. I think that’s a pretty decent start up, especially with no advertisement past Icy Vein’s Off-Topic section, a post in Natural Order’s forums, and just linking it to the facebook chat of my raid team.
I don’t have many milestones past that, 4 followers, a few comments, likes, all from 9 posts. These numbers will grow in time, and I understand that it will take effort to get them to do so. It’s been a fun but hectic ride so far, I can’t wait for it all to slow down in terms of posts per week, but I really want to see an influx of visitors.
For those who have some blogging experience, I’d like to hear some stories of how you managed to get your viewership up higher, or if you have any suggestions for me. I’m interested in seeing other people’s experiences and perspectives.
That’s about it for todays post, thanks a ton guys! I’ll give a little bonus today, two pictures of me: my before and after haircut!
Yes, I do need to shave 😛
