Dear readers and contributors:
We need your input.
Throughout the blogosphere, blogs are seeing less traffic. Unless they are very popular blogs, usually by famous people or well-known experts in their fields, blogs are not attracting readers like they used to. It's partly a matter of over-saturation. The number of blogs has sky-rocketed, and people only have so much time to read them, so smaller blogs don't get as much attention as they once did. It's also due to things like Twitter and Facebook, which have become popular places to look for information.
Here at Utah Children's Writers, we've seen a reduction in readership and comments over the past few months, and a similar drop in the frequency of posts. It might be a summer slump, or we might be following the current trends in the blogging world, or maybe it's a combination of both.
Let us hear from you. How much value do you get from this blog? How could we make it better? What topics are interesting to you? What will keep you coming back and commenting?
How can we make this a more vibrant part of the Utah writing community? Do you like reading blogs, or would you prefer to see us make our
Facebook page (yes, we have one--look for Utah Children's Writers) a more active center for our community?
We don't plan to go away anytime soon. We enjoy providing what we hope is interesting and useful information for writers of all levels. But we want to make sure we are providing a useful service, and that there's not a better way to build and support our community of writers. If there's a better way to support the community these days, we're open to change.
Let us know how best to serve you.
Thanks for your input,
The blog admins
