If You Read This, Let Me Know

As I take on more and more writing projects (new novels, short stories, collections/anthologies, etc.), I have to find ways to “trim the fat” from my life. With only so many hours in a day, it’s tough to know where I should be focusing my time and efforts.

For close to three years now, I’ve been trying to keep up with this blog as faithfully as possible. The two to four blog posts I write a week are time-consuming, but I always thought of them as an important part of being an author.

But in analyzing the web traffic I’ve been receiving over the last few months, I’m not certain I should keep up with the regular blogging efforts. So I’m asking you to let me know what you think:

Should I keep posting regularly?

If you read my blog posts, drop a comment below or on whatever social media page you found this on. Let me know that you read even SOME of the posts I share on this blog.

This isn’t a cry for attention (heh) or a way to pat myself on the back. I want to be certain that everything I share is quality, and if the blog posts aren’t where it’s at, I will focus my efforts on other content to share.

So, if you read this blog post, let me know. Even a one word comment will do. If my blog posts make a difference to even just a few people, I’m happy to continue posting.

Alternative:

If you haven’t been reading any/many of my blog posts, I’d like to know why and what I can do to make them more appealing and engaging.

  • What sort of content would you like to read? What topics?
  • Longer or shorter posts?
  • More/less frequent?

Thank you!

    Cut it back to once a week, but don’t stop, please! I like your posts. May not comment on everyone of them, but still I do like to see them. It let’s me know that you are alive… 🙂

    Putting on my SEO cap for a second… Fresh content also let’s the search engines know that your website is alive and thriving as well.

  2. I read it! And I know what you mean. My blog does not get as much traffic, and so when focusing on where to put forth time and effort, I turn to my blog less and less frequently. Particularly now, when I have so many projects on my plate.

    Look at where you read. Are you mostly on Facebook and clicking on links there? (That’s how I came across this one.) I find I read very few blogs any more unless there’s a link somewhere that grabs my attention. Maybe figure out the online reading habits of your fans and followers and go with that.

    Why not cut the posts back to once a week or twice a month? That frees up time for you as well as keeping your fans updated and others informed. If that means the post is longer, so be it.

    As far as reading the blog on a regular basis, I have to admit that I don’t. There are so many things to keep up with between life and the wonderful word of reading and writing. Usually, if I see a post for a blog pop up and Facebook and have a little time, it gets read. If I receive it in email, I don’t always make it a priority. I do open them eventually and click on them, but inevitably, I get distracted.

    I like your blogs. Keep doing them but I think if they are becoming a chore at any point, perhaps you should concentrate of writing your books, after all, that’s what’s important, right? Don’t sweat it tho. There are those who will be pissy no matter what you do. What did Abraham Lincoln say?

    You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can never please all of the people all of the time.

    Wise words. Better to please yourself in this situation I feel. Don’t you? Do what makes you happy. A happy man is a more productive one I think.

    Anyway, that’s my ten penneth worth. 😀

    Once a week is good or even every other week- let’s everyone know the website is still active. Can’t wait for book 3 of Queen of Thieves. Looking forward to it.
