So, I’m trying to work at putting aside a bit more time to work on this blog, and make it beneficial to those who read it and come across it via random Google searches for those one-off, hard-to-find niche problems that we seem to run into as IT professionals.
Previously, I have been spending time writing articles as events happen in my life, that I feel may be pertinent to the blog and the viewing audience. There have been some comments on a few of my entries, providing me with the knowledge that people actually read the blog, and actually do get benefits out of my posts! So, at the very least I know it’s somewhat useful. However, for the most part, the audience has been quite quiet. And that is completely understandable! I don’t respond to blog articles as much as I should when I come across them online while looking for solutions to my own niche problems I run into. However, it makes it extremely difficult to better tailor my posts to the readers and to better help them with any IT issues that they may have.
I have taken it upon myself to better analyze my website analytics, and to better understand what type of traffic accesses this blog, and how to best cater to them. I’ve noticed that it appears that my two busiest articles have been my article on Google Calendar Sharing, and my article on Widows 7 Offline File Syncing. I have also noticed that the bulk of my users come from Google search result links, and the majority of those links include searches for things relevant to both of the previously listed articles.
So what does this mean? It means that most of my viewers only accidentally stumble upon the blog! And again, I completely understand. But I would like to rectify that! I would like to make this blog for the readers. Obviously I can’t blog long, detailed posts about everything related to technology. Well, I could, but that wouldn’t pay the bills! What I can do, however, is gear what I do blog about more toward the interests of you, the readers, and what you are interested about. Do you want to read more product reviews? Would you like more tutorials on how to do certain things? How about troubleshooting steps to resolve those annoying complicated problems that Googling can never seem to find the answer to? Let me know!
I’m glad to see that there is traffic, and people are getting use out of the blog. But I’d always like to make it better! Leave me your feedback in the comments section. Good, bad or otherwise, I’d love to hear what you have to say!
