Yes, I know it’s late, but your Tuesday review is still on its way. It might not get here until Wednesday exactly, but it’ll get here. Despite the delay, I have been working on the blog this evening, just not doing any writing.
I met with Paulie Z and the Lizard to go over some of the nuances to the management of a site such as this. Paul has a lot of history with this stuff and has kind of become my webmaster of sorts. (It was he who showed me what I was doing wrong with the video.) Having Liz there helped greatly as well, and the dinner and drinks were a small price to pay for their invaluable assistance.
The biggest change is that you, the reader, can now e-mail a post to someone. You can also share it straight to three other social media sites, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkIn. I would love, love, love it if you chose to do any of those.
We also made some discoveries that will help if you’re interested in helping me increase my numbers. The biggest one is this: If you go on the site and start at the top and just scroll down, it doesn’t matter if you read 100 posts, I only get credit for one view; you have to click on the individual posts for me to get credit for a separate blog viewing.
The next concerns followers of the site. You get an e-mail with the post in it. If you click on the site, I get credit for a viewing; if you read the post or watch the video in the e-mail, I don’t.
I think that’s about it, and, listen, if this stuff ain’t your bag, then this stuff just ain’t your bag, and I’m cool with that. If you want to just read and be done with it, I wouldn’t be a good host–a man of good education, eh?–if I acted like that wasn’t enough. You show me great respect in that, and only an SH would ask for more.
Still, if you’re into watching this little experiment grow–which it most certainly is–these are some things we’ve found that can help us with that.
Thanks to all of you for your interest. I don’t mean to keep beating that dead horse in stating just how very much it means to me and my family, but it just does.
And thanks so much to Paul and Liz. We didn’t just have a productive evening, but a light and enjoyable dinner throughout. You don’t sit down to many dinners when there isn’t some kind of nervy deal hanging around somewhere, and it’s always pleasant to get to do so.
