When Warren and I started blogging about a year ago we were a small group. Our circle of readers has expanded widely . I never imagined this blog would grow to its current size. Richard Poe once told me if your site grows your ideal and rules may have to change with the size. My values of open forum and free speech have remained unchanged.
Enter into the hot seat FB Jones a new member of our family. I am always anxious to lend a helping hand to upstarts. However the best model for how to build a huge audience is Always on the Watch. The growth of her blog manages to amaze me. If some of the missing family members ( Jason Pappas and Esther) could find the time to introduce themselves it would be greatly appreciated.
Doing an interview for a new blogger is a challenge because I do not have a large body of work or history to work with. If this segment does not meet your expectations the fault is strictly mine.
New blogger questions
1 Most bloggers wrestle with the issue of ratings vs community. I look foward to the familiar names and view most of my long term readers as a second family. Yet I am also aware that some subjects are ratings duds. Is your goal to have large ratings or to be part of a community ? Always on the Watch does both excellently , so it can be done.
2 Do you have a specific question or questions you would like to ask our more experienced bloggers ?
3 Every blog has a focus and some are always evolving. I started out as a comedy blog
and some of you think I never left my roots. The best advice I can offer is be yoursef and have fun. What type of blog do you envison and what type of focus do you plan on.
