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:
- Greek Festival September 23-26, 2010 - Things to Do in Tucson
- July 4 Fireworks in Tucson, Marana AZ - 4th of July!
- Have You Googled YOU??
- Things that Make you Say WOW!!
- Escape to Oktoberfest at Mt. Lemmon, Tucson, AZ
- Halloween Events for Tucson, AZ Goblins and Ghouls
- Where To Recycle in Tucson AZ - Hazardous Household Waste & Other Items
- Newbie Alert - Soci@l - Putting It All Together - Can Make it all Clear to You!
- Rattlesnakes in the Tucson, AZ desert
- 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%
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.
