Hello, all you rockers! I didn’t get out of my apartment yesterday. I published one blog post and then thundershowers constantly kept blowing up and then when it looked like the thundershowers were over it was around four in the afternoon, time for Pirates baseball on the radio. So, I stayed in and surfed the web and then assumed my favorite position flat on my back on the sofa with two pillows under my weary head and I read the novel I bought at the West End Book Exchange in Little Italy earlier this month by a local author and I listened to the game. It was a restful Sunday.
I also had plenty of time for reflection. This blog is still on course to get between 25,000 to 30,000 pageviews this month; but I have to turn out more content than usual (my usual production is one blog post a day more or less or at least 30 blog posts a month) if I’m to finally break through 30,000 pagviews and beyond every month. As every blogger knows, it ain’t easy coming up with 15 to 20 good blog posts every month let alone an average of two blog posts every day (on average) which is what I think I have to do to get beyond 30,000 pageviews a month. It has to be quality content. And I have to sustain this effort for as long as I’m an active blogger.
This is the problem every blogger has who wants to increase the pageviews to his or her blog: the creation of quality content at a pace that will increase pageviews and that can be sustained for the duration.
One way I try to meet this challenge is to draw on different passions and sources for my content. Blogging about blogging is no problem. And I’m passionate about karaoke. So I blog about karaoke and the places where I sing karaoke. I have a long running interest in movies (I use to be an award winning Super 8 filmmaker) and I grew up with television. So I depend on Mr. Skin/Naked News for videos about movies and television. I write erotic (and non-erotic) flash fiction and I publish other writers of erotic flash fiction. You will find, oh I don’t know…at least 100 sexy stories and stories that have nothing to do with sex on this site. In a pinch I can always come up with a blog post about, how to write flash fiction. And finally there’s the subject of topless women. I depend on Egotastic All Stars as a source for topless women.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that if you are a blogger who is trying to increase the pageviews of your blog, draw on your interests and passions and publish at a pace that will bring in more traffic, but make sure you can sustain the pace and the effort over the long haul. Blogging is a marathon, not a sprint.
A new day of blogging has begun. Naked News usually, not always, but usually has a new video every Monday. I’ll keep checking my Naked News account and if there is a new video I’ll have it up for you later today or sometime tomorrow.
Hail to Pitt!
