Firstly, I want to wish every single reader of this blog a fantastic Christmas wherever you are and whatever you are doing. Thank you for reading my blog, and thank you even more to all those that regularly get involved and leave comments. Now … onto business!
Every now and then I like to gauge how well I am doing with this blogging malarkey. As regular readers may be aware, this is my first ever blog and it was born back in March 2007. Some may say that’s a long time by blogging standards, and to some extent I would agree – many of the blogs I read that started up around the same time as this one have now been abandoned. Once I hit the one-year mark, maybe I will have to consider myself a veteran blogger! Even when I reach that milestone though, I will still ask for feedback from my readers on a regular basis.
The importance of feedback
I don’t want to harp on for too long about this as I have written about the importance of feedback before. The fact of the matter is, if you run a community website (which I consider a blog to be) you need to ensure you are satisfying your community. The only way you can do this is by asking them what they want! Only by asking for and encouraging feedback are you able to improve your site and tailor it to the needs and wants of your members and readers.
Give me your feedback
So – over to you. Tell me what you like and don’t like about this blog. Tell me what you want to see future articles cover. Tell me what you want to see less of. Tell me what kind of subjects you want me to blog about. Do you have any ideas for future articles? Share any and every thought and opinion you have on this blog – good and bad.
Only with your feedback am I able to improve and offer you more of what you want. Thanks again, and don’t get too fat on turkey and sprouts!
