This page is a resource for bloggers. Our audience is other bloggers, contacts through other social media, friends in real life, and casual searches. The polls are for you: what do you click, when you find a new blog? What catches your eye and interests you? The more answers we get, the more information we have.
I have posts two years old which are still worth reading. How can I get readers there? The stats page tells me where people come from, and what they click to leave, but apart from images it does not show what internal links they click.
Comment. Shared experience helps us do better. I cannot change existing polls, but would add useful new ones- suggest one. What in the sidebar attracts you to a blog? Why do you have your sidebar widgets? What is your favourite widget? What blogs do you think have particularly good sidebars?
As an experiment, I put “Bravery games is a post I love, and a good introduction to this blog. Click and enjoy.” on my sidebar for a week, and got one click on it. Then I tried
click for my best photography post: Le Puy en Velay
It got five views, not because people noticed the side-bar but because I commented about it, on the zerotohero forum thread. Perhaps I should just accept that a blog is ephemeral, and seek to maximise traffic for my latest posts rather than old posts.
