Tell Me Something…I’m Curious…

O.k. gang, I have a question for you. I have been writing this blog consistently for 9 months now and the novelty seems to have worn off. Readership is down, way down. If it is just a summer thing, because everyone is out having fun, that’s cool, I get it. Kinda like when you get out of school for the summer. You go to camp and hang out with those friends and never think about your school friends until you show up on the first day and see them. If this is the case, then I will catch you on the flip side of summer.

Is the material getting weak? If it is, let me know. I have asked before if anyone has a topic in particular that you want to read about, but everyone who answered just told me to keep doing what I was doing, so I did. I can write about anything, just tell me what you want to read. Well…maybe not anything…I am no good at science or math, but I am well rounded about a lot of other topics.

Maybe this particular blog was only meant to last for a season. It did get me back into writing more, which I love, it did make me realize that is what I was meant to do. I feel like my calling is more along the lines of flash or micro fiction and short essay style. I am working on those things now and you may see more of that here. I hope this blog is not just for a season, I love my Squiggle Line Cafe.

Maybe I went too fast with the 4 posts a week. Some people write a blog post every day, multiple posts a day even. I though 4 was a good pace, maybe I need to cut down. Was it the ads I placed? Did it throw you off? I didn’t think they were too intrusive. I mean most people who blog like to make money on their work. I thought ads were better than making a subscription account where you have to pay for certain things.

Maybe I just need to keep writing and not worry about anybody reading it. It’s not that I “worry” worry, I just love to interact with people in the comments. I started this as a place to get together in the comments and discuss what I wrote about. Go grab your favorite beverage, give it a read and meet me in the comments. That was what the blog was meant to be. I appreciate everyone who responds, I really do. I just wish there was more.

Please do not think I am sitting here at 6:52 in the morning having a pity party…oh poor me, nobody is reading my blog, nobody cares. That is how one of my family members acts, but definitely not me. (Not my sister or brother either) If I were to have a pity party right now, it would be because I am in desperate need of caffeine. I am just trying to get a handle on the situation and my readers are the perfect people to ask. So, I ask you…what’s up?

I will keep plugging away writing my 4 blog posts a week as normal. You may see a little change here and there as I try new things. I might add some days and try making them be theme days. It’s just time to experiment. Throw a bunch of stuff at the wall and see what sticks.

Thanks for being here for the ride. Stick around and see what comes next. I would love to see some feedback in the comments about all the things, new style and old.

***Question for the comments…What would you like to see more of? Any new style or topic you would like me to try? Let me know, I’m curious.

***Please subscribe, like, comment, repost and share with a friend. Thanks for being here.

***Blog posts on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays


Hi, I'm Tracie. I am a writer, reader, life coach, lover of the city and the beach. I am a big fan of all things caffeinated. I dig things from many different decades, but am a definite child of the 80's. My blog is about everything and anything my mind conjures up. Enjoy the ride.

  3. Your doing fine…maybe cut back and do 2 a week or maybe even 1 a week that way you can have more experiences to share with us and incorporate that with whatever topic your writing about…maybe that will help with topics as a whole…I read your blog cause of the experiences you share and I can relate, learn and discover things to help me become a better me…plus your my friend 😊
