A Conservative View- Feedback Request
I started this blog on 9-15-2010 with the help and urging of Freddie Keel, my friend. I have written some 200 postings and about posted 100 others I deemed worthy of sharing. Most came from friends who I have tried to credit. Since inception I have had some 7300 hits. I know this does not include the 12 of you that subscribe to the blog as the number of people who visit the site has dwindled below 12 several times in the past few weeks and was zero recently. On some days the visits registered exactly the same as the ones identified by WordPress as spam. This statistic is growing and takes time to sort out real comments from the leeches that try to attach to your site or to sell me something.
I spend a lot more time reading than ever in my life, especially history and our current government debacle in Washington. My purpose in creating worthwhile things for others to read was to possibly minimize the time others had to keep up with conservative matters. Nearing the beginning of my 18th year of retirement, which has provided me the time to increase my knowledge, I question the real value of my efforts. Only two of my seven children and one of my 12 adult grand children actually subscribe to the blog. To my one son who does not even have a computer, I will ask his daughter Kerri to take him a copy if possible. When your own family does not have time to read the blog it tells me I may be wasting the average two hours a day I commit to the project or that my subject matter is questionable?
This is what prompted this posting by begging for feedback. I am secure in the fact that my 12 loyal subscribers will send me something. I will forward this to my five children who have probably never read any of the articles and see if they will poll their offsprings to suggest things to me that might interest them. God gave me a mind and challenges that have taken me across the world and the ability to create words. He also gave me enough wisdom to accept the fact that my endeavours might be just a waste of time.
Please share you candid evaluation and comments of my work you have read. I can dish it out and I can accept criticism as constructive.
