Question From A Viewer
I had this question asked me this morning on my blog from Fred Davenport:
How can I have my blogs read and read others writings?
Here was my response to Mr. Davenport:
When I decided to start my blog 2 years ago I had maybe 30 hits a week for more than 6 months. It took me until 2/1/2017 to reach 31,000 hits on my blog website. Now today I have accumulated more than 175,000-page hits and over 300,000 page views. I managed that but blogging consistently Sunday Through Friday on my website www.joesmokethoughts.com.
I also managed to build my audience without posting one naked photo, or senseless act of violence to encourage increased viewership. I linked all my activities posted on my website blog to my activity postings on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumbler. On Facebook, I post to 32 different page sites to expand my potential viewership.
Fred, in addition, I have created my personal brand The Blackman Read Aloud Hour which exclusively is my Facebook Live Session to illuminate the issue of perverse illiteracy that is prevalent in our black community. Fred, its hard work because I do intend to reach 1,000,000 page hits within the next 2 years.
In regards to reading other peoples blogs, you simply have to spend time googling and searching for topics that personally interest you. I believe that there are over 440 million blogs on various sites throughout the information highway. Quite a number of choices that deliver all types of interesting and not so interesting points of thought.
