When I wrote about living OTG and telling stories and all, readership was good. It tapered a bit downwards over the previous year or so (2017/2018) but, to be fair, I wrote more and more politically and philosophically. That stuff does not appeal like ravens, whales or even sex, boobs, guns and bullets. And most people like pictures. I really do not do enough pictures. My bad.’
‘Ya want readers?’ Open with a picture of a buxom lass in a torn, wet t-shirt holding a gun and with a lifted truck in the background.
But I want readers, not mouth-breathers, (not because I don’t like mouth-breathers – some of my best friends…..) because I really like feedback, comments, a bit of give-and-take. Don’t forget: I live remote. I like to socialize a bit. My blog is my chat-line.
Lately, I have noticed that anti-Trump rants are being somewhat well-received. So is a good piece on economics and/or some other political, social phenomena or trend. The response is NOT like before the Russians stole my previous blog (pre-2017). But good enough. Good fun. Good feedback.
The OTG stuff now gets poorer numbers. Unless I write about Sal doing something heroic. THAT usually goes over well.
That is all on me, of course. Fer sure (it is my blog, after all) and I have shifted the main topics quite a bit these past two years. The purely OTG audience has left for better OTG blogs. I get that. I am NOT entirely OK with it because I see all topics as relevant to all of us but I get it. People have to make choices where they spend their time. I just don’t like losing people…..
So? The ‘poll’ part…….?
If you are willing, please list your top three topics of interest. And put it in the comments. NO! We all know a scantily clad lass is number one (for the guys) out there*. So list #2, #3 and #4 if you will. Please. Even if you don’t normally comment, listing three words won’t kill ya…..Philosophy? Politics?Economics? OTG? Anecdotes? Zombies? Trump? Money? OTG Villages? Sally heroics?
The really interesting change for me has been the new ‘commentators’ this recent last few months.
NB *Sal added (for the guys out there) so that there was no misunderstanding….as if? I mean….who doesn’t like scantily clad, gun-toting, truck-driving gals?
