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. Each nominee should link back to the person who nominated them.

4. Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

5. Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them.

Questions

1. How important is the title of a book?
I say pretty important…aside from the cover, it’s what draws the reader to your book in the first place. If the title sounds interesting, then they’ll flip it over to read the synopsis.

2. Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Of course I can!

3. Pets! Cats. Dogs. Ferrets. Chinchillas. Have any household furbabies?
I have a dog, a cat, a turtle, and a fish.

4. Any favorites among the classics? Shakespeare? The Brontë sisters? Etc.?
Honestly, no. Not really. I like the modern stuff.

5. How do you feel about space travel?
Too scary for me!

6. Do you watch the movie then read the book – or read the book then watch the movie?
Lately, I’ve been reading the books first. For Harry Potter and Twilight I watched the movies first. Let’s just say I’ll be reading the Harry Potter series soon and not Twilight.

7. F***! Darn! Should characters curse?
No. I don’t think it’s classy at all. A few swears here and there are alright depending on the character’s personality, but if every other word is the F-bomb, then no thank you.

8. Your ideal writing space – lots of noise and clutter or serene and isolated?
Serene and isolated. I can listen to instrumental music and that’s it. Otherwise I can’t think.

9. Pandas and penguins. Love ‘em or leave ‘em?
Love them, of course.

10. What’s the one genre you can’t stand – or simply don’t care for?
I can read horror, but it’s not my favorite. A good thriller or suspense would be ideal, but I’m not looking to give myself nightmares.
