I don’t know how these things work, or why: so I’m thoroughly puzzled by a recent decrease in this blog’s readership–down by about 50% from where it was all summer.
The fall-off seemed to start when referrals from Facebook suddenly dried up, but that doesn’t account for all of it. Nor am I aware of anything I’m doing differently, over the past two months. I can’t help wondering, though, if I’ve overdone it with the political news. Maybe a lot of people are just sick and tired of this presidential election. I know I’m pretty tired of it.
Is there something that you liked about this blog, that you aren’t getting anymore? If so, please let me know. If I’ve got to make changes, I’ll make them.
Meanwhile, I’d love to see what happens if more of my readers shared my posts on their own social media pages. All I can do is “post to Facebook” after I’ve written something.
There is no market research budget here, so I depend on you all to tell me what you want.
