I'm still resting from blogging this week. This post doesn't count. I'm just going to say random things, but you can read if you want to.
First off, I noticed a clear theme from my posts last week: "I am an aspiring writer who wants to get published." So, first thing I'm going to do is change the name of my blog.
Old name: Mel-o-rama's Writing Blog
New name: Mel-o-rama's Club of Aspiring Writers
I believe this new name better reflects what I hope to accomplish. This week while I'm resting from blogging, I'm going to check out other blogs. My wife says: "You know Mel, I bet someone else has already done the 'Club of Aspiring Writers' thing. Maybe you should check them out." I told my wife: "Yes, dear," and so I will go out there and seek out new blogs (new to me) that have anything to do with writing and subscribe/follow.
I also invite all you readers to make comments - make suggestions - join the discussion.
Let's see how my blog's doing so far. I click on the "Stats" link, and this is what I see: I have 82 pageviews so far. My most visited post is "Fun at Tab Williams", the human interest story. (Take note: more people will read my posts when I don't talk about myself.)
Geography: US = 76; Canada = 3; Singapore = 2; South Korea = 1. Wow - I'm international!!
Traffic Sources: It looks like Facebook wins with a count of 16 (whatever the count means). Whoooo!!! Thanks to my Facebook friends!
Then comes Google with a count of 7 - which means people are starting to randomly find my blog.
Last random thing:
A friend of mine sent this link about author head shots. Very funny article! I'm glad that my current excuse of a head shot doesn't fall into one of these categories!
See y'all next week.
