ways to fix writing sites!

I apologize for yesterday’s article title – I did a copy-paste, and after submitting realized, I hadn’t copied the right thing. I will double-check today!

There are a couple of things that I am noticing on the site right now. First, the number of active authors (more than three times a week) has declined. We are missing Kim’s challenges as well, and that is having an impact on the site.

I’ve noticed that the rate to 100 views has stabilized. While I understand that getting paid is the first goal of many people, as a long time blogger, I am interested in getting read. We are looking at a stabilized rate of 32 hours to get to 100 views. That is, of course, post specific and, in particular, that is my rate. I also track other authors but don’t share their names or results. I will say that the rate for the other authors has improved as well. Not to where it was in September 2019. But not as bad as it was in January 2020.

What can we do? That is the interesting question – I can tell you that I’ve noticed on two of the author’s I track when they have conversations on their posts with other authors their rate to 100 views is faster. Interviews are the way to make the most virils by roughly twice what you will get for merely submitting a post and replying to comments once.

  1. I promise that if you reply to my comment on your post, I will respond to your comment. I will like your comment if it is a thread ender (thank you, have a great day), but I promise I will do that!
  2. I suspect getting the edit button back would help! But are there other things (communication, social media style blocking, etc.) that would also help.

As a community, it is time to pull together. I have a couple of community improvement ideas in the poll feel free to offer other ideas in the comments as always!

  1. The number of members is really decreasing. I don’t know what the real reason is (they could be underpaid, lowering virils for viewing posts ….). I would really like to find a way to fix this situation but I have no real idea.
