Alright my friends, here is what I have been thinking about concerning my blog for this year and I am needing your input/suggestions/opinions:
Since Stumbleupon has changed their format, I have lost a lot of my readership (over 80% to be exact) and I can’t figure out why. I’m not doing anything different from what I was before.
The only conclusion that I can arrive at is that they want me to buy an upgrade because I was getting too many hits for free.
To be quite honest with you, before now I averaged approximately 1000 – 2000 hits a day from them alone.
Now I am lucky to get over 100 – 150.
If their rates were reasonable, I might have considered it but they don’t have a flat fee upgrade. Instead they charge you per hit. Sorry guys, it’s not that important to me to pay you like that nor could I afford it if I wanted to. I am just about ready to stop posting there completely but will wait a while longer to see if it turns around.
I recently linked up to tumblr and have quickly seen a growing readership. 🙂
I try my best to offer a wide variety of content so that everybody can find something that appeals to them. Is there anything you all would like to see me do more of, less of, change, etc?
How about my short stories? I haven’t done any recently because they were not being read by that many people but if those of you who were reading them want me to, I will start doing more of them.
I would appreciate hearing anything that you have to say about it.
I also have been encouraged by several of my most supportive friends to pursue getting some of my children’s and inspirational story/poems published. That is one goal that I have set for this year. Anything helpful that you have to offer there would also be appreciated!
Love and blessings, Terri
