Questions for Bloggers
How often do you try to blog and how often do you actually blog?
I schedule posts every once in a while. I also save drafts for later/when I feel like updating but don’t exactly have something to blog about. It’s rather difficult finding a meme I haven’t already done yet as well. Lately I have been trying to blog at least every three days, and so far I have been blogging at least every two days.
Do you have a stat tracker on your site? Which one? What does it track?
Over on 6birds I use plugins Count Per Day and [I think it’s called] UserOnline. It’s not necessarily to track hits as much as it is to track who’s coming to my website. On Seek Liza I don’t have a tracker. I have my blogs set up through FeedBurner, but the number of subscribers doesn’t matter to me so I don’t really pay attention to it.
How often do you change the layout of your site and how important is a good layout to you?
I used to change my layouts practically all of the time, but I don’t anymore. In fact, I hardly ever change them anymore. I haven’t changed this one for a long while, and I probably won’t change it until autumn arrives. I like it; it’s definitely better than pink. Blue isn’t my favorite color; I just think it’s pretty – just like I think purple, orange, red (raspberry red) and grey are pretty colors as well. I don’t really have a favorite color, but I do really enjoy green. I think that if I would have chosen green that I would have grown tired of it sooner… 😛 Maybe in the future, though. 😉
A good layout means a lot to me, and it’s not just the colors. If the layout (format, coloring, organization, everything that is on that page) of the entire website is something that I don’t like (i.e. it’s too busy), I’m out. End of story.
How often to you check your blog for comments?
I disabled the option to have them emailed to me… So now I just check my dashboard a lot. Maybe I check it more than I should, I don’t know. But I do check it tons… Maybe more than 10 times a day, multiple times in a three-hour time span? Maybe not that much, but it’s at least once to three times daily.
How did you decide on a proper organization for your posts (categories, tags, etc.)?
I’m still working on figuring that out. However, SL is much more organized than my other blogs (I don’t consider Dehlu to be a “blog”). I have only five categories – Archived (holds private posts), General (was Uncategorized), Health, Life. 😛 As for the tags, I currently have 29, and I have not made new tags in a while.
I have an archives page that lists out all public posts.
Is your blog secret or open to people you know offline?
It’s open to anyone and everyone. And anyone offline who finds it/has the link can see/read it as well. Even though we’re not on grand terms, my mom and them even read it. I don’t know if they’ve come across this one yet, though… 😛 Don’t really care.
