I’m taking steps to grow the Writings By Ender presence. Some of you might have noticed the upswing in content over the last few weeks: Write-up Wednesday, Fiction Analysis Friday and of course a short story whenever I get it done. I want to blog a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule like I mentioned in my previous post. Unfortunately there was no significant help in the comments section of that post But that’s a lesson I’ve learned (No more multiple topic blog posts).
In a dual effort to engage my audience of some 7,000 and in an effort to get a real opinion of what you guys think, I’ve started a poll section in the sidebar of my site. The topic of this poll is “What Should My Weekly Monday Post Be?” I left up two ideas of my own but I’m excited to hear your opinions. If you do have a comment to add another idea, the poll actually has an external link where you can leave a comment. I’ll also be keeping this poll as a regular feature of my site, all the questions of the polls will be either writing or blogging related.
I’m also looking at changing the layout of my website. I’ve actually already changed the theme but the format remains mostly the same. I’ve noticed that a viewer can read a good majority of my work without ever leaving the front page, which is good for the reader but bad for getting any real metric to what people click and look at. Unfortunately I haven’t much experience with webdesign. So I’ll be looking for a designer who’ll be able to help me structure this website into 1.) Something that is a bit more visually pleasing and 2.) Encourages you guys to look more into my site. If you have any ideas, please let me know in the comments.
I also want to please you, my readers, I love what I do. I love it more than anything else I’ve done in my life, but the goal was always to share my passion of writing. I want to share it, and the journey it’s been taking me on to everybody. Not just writers, editors and readers, but anybody. To do that, I need to know how I can be more accessible. How can I be more engaging? How do you think I can run this blog better? Do you have any advice at all? Please leave it in the comments.
P.S. Yes, I am purposefully avoiding writing about U.S. politics.
