Hello! Every Friday morning, I’ve published a 7-item long list of my favorites reads of the week, including timely articles, old essays, links to events in Cincinnati and elsewhere, etc. While this blog continues to gain followers, it seems that fewer people are clicking on these weekly links, so I’d like to put this question out there to all of you: is this worth continuing?
When I started this blog over 6 years ago, it seemed like a great outlet for my Cincinnati discoveries, a place that was then still fairly new to me, and a way to connect with neighbors. There was more discussion back then about changes in the neighborhood, day-to-day logistics, etc. A bunch of us had active blogs then, but many of them are dormant now. The idea of “online community” has shifted to other platforms and modes of connecting.
Over time, as our business started getting off the ground, I posted more about that, and about our travels as we were able to make time for those adventures. People seemed to comment less, so I focused more on sharing eye candy than trying to start conversations. This blog became a repository for our own news and our various forms of inspiration.
But, this weekly link round-up is perhaps a holdover from a few years ago, when there were more debates in the comments. In the mean time, it seems that readers have become viewers and, if these links are not of interest to those of you who regularly visit this blog, please let me know and tell me what you do enjoy about visiting this bit of virtual space. I’d appreciate your feedback!
