Greetings Baby Boomers! What’s on your mind?

Posted on Updated on

I love to write; I love to talk; but I also really, really, love to listen.

I placed this Blog entry in the Personal Struggles category of my Blog because I’m struggling to assure that what I’m providing on this Blog meets your needs and interests.

Sure, my ego would be stoked by having more Followers and more page hits – and I welcome all that have an interest – but that’s not my biggest concern.  What’s missing for me is reader input in the form of Comments.  A lack of comments is not the readers’ fault, rather, I think I’m missing the boat regarding the nature of my Blog entries because they don’t encourage Comments.

Are my articles too long?  Are they not sufficiently pertinent to your ongoing interests?  Is the subject matter too limited in scope?  If so, in what direction would you like me to go?  I’ll go just about anywhere with my Baby Boomer Content because I’m not an expert on a zillion topics but I am interested in at least that many.

If you have the time, I’d love to hear from you.  And I can pretty much promise that I won’t be offended by any constructive criticism you provide.  Society is like a bird.  It has two wings, and a bird can not fly when one of its wings is broken.  My wing isn’t broken, it just needs to be pointed in the right direction.  I hope you’re willing to help me do so.  I love what I do and cherish this venue where I can hone my skills and increase my knowledge because along with listening comes the benefit of learning something new.  I can hardly wait to hear from you.

    Yours is the only blog to which I subscribe, so I may not be the best candidate on the topic. In what I have observed, people generally comment if they disagree or have something of their own to add. Since your entries aren’t really controversial and are very thorough, that eliminates 99.9% of reasons to comment. Not sure if you already do this, but if you’re wanting more people to see your blog, perhaps seek out news stories on-line to which you can comment with a link to your blog. I’m not sure what blogging/commenting etiquette is, so you may want to observe if anyone else does that sort of thing . . . .

      I believe you’re absolutely spot on. My hope is that even if people agree with what I’ve posted, they’ll contribute their experiences that relate to the article’s subject matter. That way everyone gets to benefit from the experiences of others – whether those experiences had not-so-happy endings, or successful endings. I’ll definitely look into your linking suggestion as well as other hints that WordPress offers on their site. Stay tuned and thanks so much for your comment!!!
