Blogging Aiming in the Right Direction

I've been blogging since June 2010, and I've summed up my "purpose" on Active Rain in a few of last year's blogposts. One was when I hit 100,000 points, and the other, a discussion and pictorial explanation of how Localism can work for you.

My goal is to be a community voice during my time here on AR; sharing events, compiling resources of "things to do", restaurant reviews, and mainly focusing on the many neighborhoods in my community within which readers might have an interest.

Being a person who likes to compile statistics, I analyzed my top twenty most viewed blogs of 2010 and cross checked where my readers are actually focusing their attention.

Here are my top ten blog posts from 2010:

  1. Greek Festival September 23-26, 2010 - Things to Do in Tucson  
  2. July 4 Fireworks in Tucson, Marana AZ - 4th of July!  
  3. Have You Googled YOU??  
  4. Things that Make you Say WOW!!  
  5. Escape to Oktoberfest at Mt. Lemmon, Tucson, AZ  
  6. Halloween Events for Tucson, AZ Goblins and Ghouls  
  7. Where To Recycle in Tucson AZ - Hazardous Household Waste & Other Items  
  8. Newbie Alert - Soci@l - Putting It All Together - Can Make it all Clear to You!  
  9. Rattlesnakes in the Tucson, AZ desert
  10. Where's the Rain?? Monsoon season officially begins June 15, 2010, in Southern Arizona  


Here's the breakdown of subject matter for my top twenty most-read blog posts:

Community events  30%

Resource Information Blogs  10%

SWDesert Living and Community Information   45%

Other 15%

This tells me that my "purpose" statement is right on. For now, I'll be following Anthony Robbins quote:

“If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.”

It's working for me.

Have you analyzed your blogging patterns?  Are you Blogging Aiming in the Right Direction for the new year?

Cara ~  This is well-stated.  Our aim has to be pointed in the right direction and there's no question you are on-point!   (not sure I said that right, but you get the idea -- or I got the right intent!?!)    Thanks, had to lean . . .
