4 Why Are You Here, I Mean, Why Do You Visit This Blog?
OK, it's time to once again open up the floor to this blog's new visitors & regular readers who have yet to comment here on this blog. Of course, the floor is always open to all readers' comments, but this post is specifically devoted to you, the silent reader -- whether new or regular visitor, or subscriber -- who has yet to voice their opinions. So now's your chance to be heard!
As I was looking through my Feedburner stats today, I noticed that this blog has quite a lot of subscribers & repeat visitors, which of course makes me completely ecstatic! Of course, this is not said for bragging purposes, but it did make me wonder one thing: Why are all of you here? Of course, I'm not referring to that expression in the larger philosophical sense -- although you're perfectly welcome to answer that question if you wish! ;-) -- but rather, why are you dropping by my blog?
For new visitors, how did you hear about this blog? Are you dropping by specifically to read about running or was it a completely random occurrence? Would you consider subscribing or returning again to read this blog in future? Why or why not?
For repeat visitors & subscribers, what makes you want to come back for more? Is it due to your general interest in running & sports nutrition, a personal connection, your general enjoyment of my writing style/voice &/or sense of humor, or some other reason?
And here are some questions for all visitors: What do you hope to gain from the experience? What do you like or not like? What do you want to see more of or less of here? Do you have any specific questions about running or sports nutrition, or specific requests for topics that you'd like to see me address here in this blog?
I'm just really curious, and would to love to hear from you.
I promise to post your comments -- compliments and constructive criticism alike -- as long as they are written in a civil & manner, with the express intention of helping me improve this blog. (Also, not that I should have to write this, but let's please keep the level of dialogue elevated, free of insults & personal attacks.) I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks so much in advance for your feedback!
