That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it

My “online, not a real person ’cause he’s an internet boy” friend Adam told me the other day that I should post in my blog daily. “It’ll increase your readership,” he said. I told him that readership is not the reason I write here. It’s more something that I do for myself than it is something I do for you.

Sure, there are times when I hope for a reaction from y’all. (That’s the aim of most of the “mushy love” posts!) But more than anything, this little Web site is a place for me to vent. I write all the time – for the newspaper, for class, for magazines, in my journal. Those each have their places in my life. The first three are more structured, and the last is waaaay more private.

When I’m pontificating on my ideas about the world and the life I lead, I like to do it in a somewhat well-written manner. I may not always accomplish that, but it is my goal. Maybe that means decreased readership. It obviously means not posting every day. But for me, that’s the purpose this little page serves… and I kinda like it that way. 🙂

And just for kicks, a fun picture.

    Well, like Adam, I would be happy if you posted more often. I check basically every day & it is the little bit harder every day when I see there isn’t a new post. Of course, I am guilty of the same crime, so I can’t get too mad.
    In other news, I think that is a very pretty picture of you. Keep up the good work!

  2. All you got to do is write about dating. Then people will love (or hate) reading your blog.

  3. I’ve been doing this a while … readership is vastly overrated.

  4. Not posting every day is a sign of low moral character.

  5. I just like to take credit for that photo, I took it. 😉

  6. I believe I may take offense to the previous comment. Was the so-called title “Best roommate ever” bestowed upon you Alisa or did you name yourself as such?

  7. pontificating…good word.

  8. Is there going to be a cat fight on my blog? (Alisa is telling stories.)

    also, I try to blog every day, or every other day. It really depends on what’s on my mind or what happens that day. It’s hard to decide what is “blog-worthy” and what is just inconsequential blabber”. Readership is important to me only because it leads to commentorship! the sharing of ideas and opinions on whatever the topic is…like i’m doing now…sharing my opinion…:op

  11. is it really true that writing about dating increases your readership?

  12. Have you SEEN how many more comments I get when I write about dating?!

  13. i might try it. my comments are low these days.
