Bloggin’ Fun

February 24, 2009 · 3 comments

Ok, my dear readers, you weenies:

I am once again putting out the call for Feedback!  Thusfar, this blog has been a delightful and rewarding experimental experience.  I truly enjoy the feedback I get from you and do my best to incorporate all that I can.  My reward comes when my stats plugin says that lots of people are reading, so I am here (to a certain extent) at your service.  Don’t be shy – comment!  Throw in a comment to a post you like or don’t like, I see them all.  Send me an email with your critiques and criticisms:  QuixoticJedi[at]gmail[dot]com.

What did you think of Rap Appreciation Week?  What have I written that you enjoyed?  What have you shared on Facebook?  What sucked?  What made you want to find something else to read?  Give it to me; I can take it.

Here’s a hook – we’ll see if anyone bites:  follow me on Twitter.  I’m still working my way around that system, so if you know all about Twitter and have suggestions, please, let’s have them.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’ve been doing some re-prioritizing of things.  Here’s what I have planned for this blog in the near future:  monetization.  I want to see if I can get this thing to pay for itself, and maybe help me get my ass out of the red – $100k in student loans at (arguably) predatory interest rates does not make for a well-sleeping Ted.  I’m going to add a PayPal donation button to the Donations page, and maybe even an Amazon Wishlist button as well, to make it easier for you to give me money.  I just signed up with Google AdSense, so I’ll be strategically placing a few ads on the page. 

Who are you that reads this blog?  Tell me about yourself.  Besides the fact that I need to know my demographic in order to put up the right ads, I care.  I want to know who you are, what you think about, and what you want to read about.  Eye heart typing my heart out for you.

Once I have a few ads placed and the various donations buttons up and running, I plan to go out to some of the groups to which I belong on LinkedIn and ask for feedback as well.  And I belong to a lot of groups:  several Mensa groups, several blogging groups, and a handful of others that relate specifically to my work-life (corporate governance consulting and proxy solicitation).  Don’t worry, I have another blog that covers those topics.  This one is for fun – for me and for you.

Ok. And I’ll try to be more cynical, too.

I can read between your line.
