I decided to organise these camera reviews a bit better and initially I just added a new menu item which took you to all the camera posts but now I have a page listing all the cameras including those not yet reviewed. Click on the ‘CARROT ROOM OF CAMERAS’ menu and you’ll see; Continue reading “Check out my new page and menu”
So I have been doing this blog for just over a year now and I thought it time to take stock. I don’t think I have lived up to my original premise exactly but it is definitely rambling. I can see it morphing into something but still not really into any kind of rhythm with it.
It’s not the most successful or well read blogs by any means but that is more down to my lack of effort in pushing it out there or being regular with the posts and/or the subject matter. Readers probably want to know what they are going to get and want a consistent feed. I have amassed a whopping 79 followers had approximately 1,600 views, 1,100 likes and 300 comments from 700 visitors which is modest but I am happy with and grateful to all those who have given me their attention.
It has not gone unnoticed that I get significantly more interest when I am posting regularly and with some theme in mind. I also notice that some types of post receive more attention than others.
So for 2017 I either carry on as I am or I need to step it up a little if I want greater success. That will depend on how much of my time I have available and whether I have ambitions for this little blog beyond what it is right now. I definitely have some things I would like to do on here and they are multi-post things that should put some frequency to my posting.
So thank you all for reading and liking and commenting in 2016, I look forward to hearing from you and in posting things for you in 2017.
Today WordPress notified me that I reached 1,000 likes. It may be a small milestone and some of you are probably well past that but it is still worth noting and for my little random blog it made me smile first thing this chilly Tuesday morning.
It’s an odd thing blogging; sending your thoughts out there wondering if anyone really cares about what you say or do. Sometimes it’s disappointing sometimes it’s exciting or interesting.
My blog doesn’t have a massive following but I am surprised at the range of people and the distant countries that you come from and that you find my little space on the internet. So thank you all for taking time to stop and look at what I do and for you likes and comments.
I was getting fed up with the theme I was using as it didn’t seem to allow me to show my posts in the way I wanted. So I picked a new theme, then spent ages trying to work out how to make it work the way I wanted. Hopefully it looks okay.
I realised that I have to make some changes to the way I post and also had to update existing posts so they worked how I expected
Somehow I feel my previous theme might have done what I wanted anyway. But hey you live and learn I guess (maybe I will switch back to to check).
