Change My Life Blogaday - Day Seven Addendum

I just had this thought. One day this week, after I've written a good post, I'm going to change my facebook status to "Christopher is shamelessly promoting his blog. Http://" and see how many hits I get that day. I'm betting I get 40 hits that day. I average about 15.

Hmm, very interesting. That'll be weird to see. That's so risky. I mean, what if people like what they see and stay? That'd be great, but then I have new readers. And my audience changes a little bit. If my audience changes, does my writing change? In an ideal world, no. Maybe I'm a little too scared of the fallout to actually do it. But I think it'd be a fun experiment.

I dunno. Just had the thought, so I figured I'd write about it before bed. Okay, goodnight for reals friends. Much love.

You should do it. More readers can't really hurt, right? I know people are always supposed to write with their audience in mind, but if people like what they see and decide to stay, then changing anything about your style would be instantly gambling those new readers. Right? I think your posts have a very universal appeal. Anybody would like hearing what you have to say, if they take the time to sit down and do it. I wouldn't worry about it too much. :)

So I feel bad for not commenting, since I read every one of these posts. But here I am. Good work on Logan Blogaday, and many good wishes on Change Your Life Blogaday. You'll get there. ;) I also think that if anyone's blog deserves more readers, it's yours, so I say go for the Facebook plan. It'll probably work. Good on you, mate. Later.

Maybe you should just give up on writing. Then you'd be free to pursue your life as a jazz dancer. Or maybe that was Andrew; no it was you. lol jk. I'm glad that things are looking up. You don't talk about being unsure of yourself anymore. It's a good sign. I don't mean to be therapeutic because that's not usually my intent. I just thought I'd tell you something that I noticed.
