What Can I Do For You?

what can I do

Everything I do on this blog, I do for you guys.

I know the majority of my followers are writers and readers alike, so I post writing prompts to give you guys ideas. I write book reviews because who doesn’t enjoy reading? Seriously though, I also accept books from authors to help them out and get recognized for their hard work.

I also have guest bloggers on my site to promote other readers, writers, and bloggers alike. And what better way to help each other out than to promote and showcase each other? Plus, you all have different ideas and know things I don’t. You guys can teach my followers something I can’t. You guys teach me in the process.

I have plenty of other ideas to help you guys out as well as promote you guys for what you do. I’m not going to mention them now only because I don’t know when these ideas will be able to happen. Just know that I’m always thinking of you guys.

I have three specific days a week (Sunday, Thursday, and Friday) that I devote my time to working on my blog(s).

But I think of this blog every single day. I write down notes and ideas every day even if it’s not a “blogging day” for me.

I’m always coming up with new ideas, thinking of ways to improve my posts whether it’s the way I write them, the kinds of images I use, etc. I’m always trying to better my content and come up with new things that you guys want to see.

I post on here once a day, every day. That’s a lot of content to come up with.

I have my regular features on my blog. Short Story Sunday on Sundays, book reviews on Saturdays, and writing prompts on Fridays. But Monday through Thursday is a free-for-all in terms of content.

If you’ve been following me for a long time, you know all this stuff.

So–to finally get to my point–I need your help.

Instead of my trying to come up with new content ideas day-in and day-out, I need a huge favor from all of you.

In the comments, if you would be so kind to answer the following questions:

1. What do you enjoy most about my blog?
2. What kind of content would you like to see more of?

I have plenty of ideas to last me a lifetime, but I thought what better way to create meaningful content for you guys if I don’t ask you guys what you want?

Only you know what you enjoy reading about. Only you know what you want to learn more about.

Do you want more information on genre-specific writing? Need more grammar help posts? Are you interested in where I am on my writing projects?

If you have a specific post idea, I’d be glad to do it. Or try to do it, anyway.

Unfortunately, I can’t guarantee all of your ideas will happen and if it does, it might take a while. But I still appreciate your input.

I want to know what I’m doing “right” on this blog and I want to know why my followers keep coming back for more.

I’m not an expert in writing or reading or blogging or anything that I talk about on here. But I do my best. I speak from experience, I conduct research.

So I hope you’ll help me out with this little “survey,” I guess you can call it. I want to make sure I’m creating the best content for my readers!

Thanks, guys! I really appreciate it.

  1. First off, I love seeing posts from you. My favorites are the book reviews, personal tidbits on what you are up to with your own projects, and the short story.

    I know you put a TON of work into this PLUS you are on top of reading lots of other blogs and ensuring you comment on them too. If you are looking for more content, perhaps with all your time reading others blogs, you could share/reblog some really good ones you see? Just my 2 cents. It would be something easy to do that you area already doing, would bring some exposure to others blogs, and would bring new perspectives to your readers.

    I’m relatively new to WordPress though and don’t know if this is acceptable/proper/etc. Keep going! I’m interested to see everyone else’s opinion.

    1. Thanks for the lovely feedback! Reblogging isn’t a bad idea and I have thought of it many times, though I don’t want to seem like I post multiple times a day and clog up peoples readers. But I wonder if I do like a blogger spotlight once in a while? Or a link round up? I’ll have to think on that. Great idea!
      The reason I made this post was because I have a ton of ideas for my blog, but I want to make sure I’m catering to my readers as well. I don’t want to be posting things that seem “pointless” to my followers. I just want to see what kinds of posts are working and which ones aren’t.
      Thanks again for your input! I really appreciate it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hello Rachel,

    I enjoy your blog very much. There is so much useful information. I for example would like to read more about genre specific writing. But this shouldn’t be criticism. I just like the idea you had. ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re doing amazing work!

    1. Thanks for the positive feedback!
      Last June was “Mystery Month” so maybe I’ll continue that. I don’t know too much about other genres, but I’ll certainly try to see what I came come up with.
      Thanks again! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I agree with Aurora that genre specific helps – book reviews are great but I’m no big fan of fantasy so i skip those. However mystery, thriller, buddy, coming of age, good literary and I’m your man. So having a month on a theme is a wonderful way esp if you know the month is coming. I love prompts, especially if i know they are short – its making them interactive that I enjoy. And your list of comps are great.

Let me know what you think!
