I’ve just finished reading Chris Garret’s post “What to do when your blog plateaus” over at Darren Rowse’s Problogger.
I don’t like to admit that I’ve stalled or that my blog is becoming stale, but in my busyness of trying to complete my Garden Blog Directory update due to be released on 1 Dec, I sense that this ship is merely drifting. You don’t believe me… check out my feed subscribers.
Now, I’m not after your compliments or reassurance that all is right with my world but what I am keen to hear is what needs to change to keep you – my down-right gorgeously, loyal readers – interested and coming back for more. And, while we’re at it, what things turn you off about my blog.
How’s the writing style? Content? Humour (or lack of it)? Photographs? Interaction? Helpful advice? Ya-da, ya-da!!!
For instance, one of my friends recently unsubscribed from my email feeds. I was devastated until I found out that the reason was because he couldn’t read the font-size I was using. Just a few changes and it’s all good again.
So, I want you to be as candid as you like. I’ve put on my heavy-duty, chain-mail suit to limit the flesh wounds, so anything you add will be taken constructively. Even if your smell-o-vision LCD screen is picking up on my halitosis, I want to know about it.
