I recently had a bad experience at a blog run by a friend who will remain nameless.
When one comes to this site one knows what to expect. I also tailor my posts to what I think the readers will enjoy. For every post that you read there are three that I draft and ponder. I do not do filler post such as anniversaries and site numbers.
Each day I put up fresh material in the morning. Now that this distraction has been eliminated I am thinking about a second post at night. There are times that I gauge the audience wrong like the discussion of Strauss and Raynd. Mr Beamish pointed it out and I prepared a post that got more reaction then I had assumed.
The moral of the story is that one must remember their core readers when making decisions. Would my readers be upset if I let Ducky decide the direction of this blog? Yes they would be upset and rightfuly so as I failed to respect my readers. This blog is pro American and anti communist and Ducky serves as entertainment.
Rule one respect your readers and focus on your core readers. My friend failed this rule and it caused me to leave his site. Friends do fail and the damage is done but I will not return until he remembers rule 1
