Let me start by saying I am very pleased with the number of hits that my blog receives every day. It is shocking the number of people that happen upon my blog thru google, dogpile and yahoo! searches, and the real icing on the cake, are the ones that come back for another look. I started out with 1 loyal reader, then 4 more, now I am up to an average of 17 returning visitors a day. However only 4 of them are in a 40 mile radius.
I have tried to become a "Syracuse.com" blogger, but after several submissions and no responses I have given up on them. Sad too, b/c the people that they have writing for them update their blogs once a full moon. I wrote several letters to the editor of the Post-Standard. One of them must have inspired a mention in the tech section. Unfortunately for me, it linked to my geocities site where my essay was stored on-line.
Sometimes I like the fact that I can write without boundaries, grammar checks, and with an occasional curse. Having only a few people read what you have to say allows that. Other times though, I would love to write that breakthrough piece, the one that would get my blog exposed to more Syracusans. I thought about writing small articles for the local papers, or submitting them as free-lance to the Post-Standard.
"The road to hell is paved with good intentions."
Thanks to all who stop by and read. Especially those back for another look.
Blog update - I wish that there were more Syracuse bloggers/readers
