It’s a tricky business, this blogging malarkey. Why do I do it? Partly because I enjoy it, partly as I’m a bit of a geek, partly as I hope it might encourage the odd person, be in some way motivational. But I also do it -frankly- because, as a 21st Century ‘Adventurer’, blogging is one of the best ways of blowing my own trumpet and -hopefully- selling more books and getting more speaking gigs.
In order to do that I need to have an interested and growing audience. The bar chart above shows the number of visitors to my site per month. So it’s heading in the right direction! But some days I do think “does anyone care about this stuff except me?” It’s a lonely world, sometimes, sitting at my messy desk working away until the next time I can get out on the road. From time to time then I email people who have commented on my blog to ask them how they think I could improve the site.
One suggestion came from Timon in Scotland. A simple idea, but a good one. And that was to ask my readers directly what they would like to see more of.
So, what would you like to see more of on this blog? Equally, what would you like to see less of?
In fact, any suggestions how I could improve the site at all would be really gratefully received*.
I’ll send out a few signed copies of 10 Lessons from the Road for the best comments posted or emails I receive as a way of saying thank you for your help.
Or you can just click on the option you prefer in the poll below. Thank you.
