First of all, I want to thank everyone who is reading this blog. On many days we get over 100 unique visitors, and at times, subscribers have been as high as 38. I don't think I'll ever make any money at this, but I do find it therapeutic, and I am trying hard to be satirical without being mean. As many have noticed, I have an easier time picking on the left side of the political spectrum.
One of my requests of readers is that if you like a post, please share it. If you click on the title of any post, it will take you to a page of just that one post, where you can copy the web address or url, and send that to your friend. That way they avoid having to sort through the entire blog to find a particular post.
The little green "Share This" icon allows you to send it to any of the "sharing services" like Digg, but at the top of the box is an email/send tab that allows you to easily email that blog to a friend. Its at the bottom of all posts.
Also, I'd LOVE some input on how I should organize the blog. Currently, I am writing on local politics (both serious and humorous), doing some wine and cigar reviews, and also profiling local happenings--new restaurants, stores, and pictures of the beach. Should I continue including all of these under the same blog, or should I split out some of this stuff (like national political satire or wine reviews) and put them in other blogs? My experience has been that the more blogs you operate, the fewer readers you garner on each blog. On the other hand, if someone subscribes because of a funny political post, they drop their subscription when the next visit displays "Today's Ocean" or an article on a coffee shop.
What say you? I love writing for y'all, but want to make it something you wish to visit every day.
And for the record, all of my local features are pro bono--no one pays to be reviewed here.
The comments section is open to anyone--you don't have to register or submit any personal information and I don't know who you are unless you tell me! Just hit "comment" at the end of any post and blast away. It also hides your email address and changes it to something that says "noreply from blogger".
And for the record, the advertisements I added from Google have not paid one penny! It appears to make money there, about 3 zillion people would need to actually click through an ad.
THANKS to all of you.
