Hello, hello, hello, rock ‘n’ rollers everywhere! A new day of blogging has begun. Guy Hogan is my name and blogging is my game. What adventures in blogging will we share today?
I had a good fifteen to twenty minutes of deep breathing, flexibility and stretching exercises this morning (karaoke the first Saturday night in July at Nico’s in Little Italy and karaoke the first Sunday night in July at Sonny’s in Little Italy) and now I’m ready for another day of being a student of blogging.
The days are hot (80s) and the nights are cooler (60s). I sleep like a baby.
Pittsburgh City Paper
Today is Wednesday which means the Pittsburgh City Paper will be hitting the streets. The PCP is a print weekly with an online presence. It is a publication of local news, opinion, and arts and entertainment. Wikipedia says it has a print circulation of 70,000 copies every week and Free Website Report says the online edition gets 13,000 page views every day (The Gazette is averaging 710 page views every day so far this month). So, I feel I have something to learn by studying the PCP. First of all, its print and online editions are free, just like The Gazette. How does the PCP survive? Ads. The Gazette has ads, too.
Of course, the PCP has a staff and The Gazette is a one-person operation; but I still think I can learn a lot about publishing an online magazine by being familiar with the premiere weekly in the Pittsburgh area even if it is a mainstream publication. What I already realize is that I have to increase the daily page views of The Gazette. Everything else is in place. Yes, it always comes day to page views. My goal is at least 1,000 page views every day. I have no doubts that 1,000 page views every day is doable. I think I just have to continue publishing good content every day and I’ll get there.
