I always like to evaluate what I offer. Am I doing what I set out to do? Are my words resonating with my audience?
Well, I think so.
As you know, since the beginning of the year, I’ve been posting every day — each with a different theme. Sunday there is a devotional, Sunday Sermonette. Monday is a Words for the Week. Tuesday centers on readin (reviews), ritin and ‘rithmetic (stats), including book promotion. Wednesday is home to Midweek Mirth. Thursday is free write, whatever escapes my mind. Friday is reserved for my response to the Five Minute Friday prompt. Saturday is Prayer, Care, Share day where I collect your prayer requests, put them on my weekend prayer list and encourage others to do the same.
The intention was to have a more regular presence, which, in turn, would result in more exposure. From that standpoint, the regimen has been successful. New friends have found my site and started following. More comments are being made.
But the one thing I haven’t been able to figure out is which themes resonate well and which ones are just there. I thought I could scan the stats to trend which days — and which post themes — poll well, but I can’t. While there might be a dip in readership and/or views, they are on different days. And I’ve found some posts were actually read later — Words for the Week on Tuesday or Wednesday in addition to Monday.
So, I guess I’m asking you. What works? What tunes you out?
It’s always been my intention to keep this blog relevant. Am I succeeding? What would you like to see?
