I just posted this-below- on my new (self hosted) blog, www.captainjillsjourneys.com. (I have not received this ‘award’ from WordPress here). I’m curious as to what you all think about the difference in response between the two blogs. I post pretty much the same things on both. And what would you say to the questions I ask at the end?
Hooray! I noticed this in my comments the other day. WordPress let me know that I had received 1000 likes on this blog. 🙂
I’m happy about it, especially since it seems that on this blog, getting any kind of response is like pulling teeth compared to my old one (which was just on WordPress).
People say it’s because WordPress already has a built in audience- through the reader. Self hosted blogs, like this one, have to do it all on their own (somehow).
I wish I knew what I was doing to get those likes.
Let me ask you…what do you like about my blog? Any specific posts you remember? Any particular subjects? Anything you’d like more of? less of? what do you think would make my blog even better? what would make it stand out?
