there can never be enough of a good thing
blogspot provides easy to read stats, and is very search engine worthy, since it is owned by almighty god...errrr i mean Google, the search engine giant. this stat screenshot was at midnight after most of you went to bed, and even then it shows 9 "views" ....
multiple outlets for our voice is key
i had opened an account at blogger.com which is a hub of sorts for all blog connections; and i have been looking for another blog or two to open. my social media coach seems to think i can handle cut/paste pretty well.
@hylamolander informed me she had over 70k views on http://scribd.com i moved over there with my awesomely useless, vitally inneffective dating tips, hopefully there will be no police involved in the taking thereof too seriously. even more recently @alikat747 has encouraged some of this cross-marketing herself
two points are important to bloggers:
a. if you are comfortable where you are, open another blog somewhere else, and cut/paste the entire contents to your new blog, adding a page a day so as not to bombard your new set of readers. no point in turning them off before you get to know them. but definately open a new blog today
b. use the stats feature provided by the vender, in this case google because you can develop "key times" to post your new blog entry
in another article, i read what we have all probably suspected, that the best time to post a blog "tweet" is between 4 and 5 Eastern Standard Time. there are other peak times, say between 10 and 11 am EST, and of course Friday at rush hour.
my own statistics mirror the results of the article, and i have taken advantage of these "trends" to enlarge my blog following, and to promote other people's blogs.
i blog primarily for my own entertainment purposes, and actually nap and dance for a living. i am also thinking of taking up training masseuses; teaching them how to dress, giving them tips on technique and the all important art of the oil rub down...
now if i could just get my manic uncle freddie to quit driving through my flower beds with his lawnmower....
