I don’t think blogging reaches out to half as many people as it used to do and I hardly got a peep out of anyone in regard to selecting Curvy (R L Moore, 9/2), Trip To Paris (G Lee, 12/1) & War Envoy (R L Moore, 10/1) yesterday. However, it is personally satisfying getting the winners and making my own money from them, and even if it’s just one solitary person who makes a few pounds following me one day then it’s definitely worth carrying on sharing through this blog. I do have to keep reminding myself “I’m not a tipping site!”.
I never ask for retweets on Twitter but I’m wondering whether this is contributing to my own personal viewing demise? However, I believe if your blog content is decent then it’s consistency should speak for itself and you shouldn’t need to ask for retweets, people should simply return to you with regularity.
The trouble is with social media these days, and especially the Twitter platform, is that it’s a complete “Look at me!!!” outlet. Whoever shouts the loudest gets all the attention and all the decent material gets swamped by a tidal wave of rubbish. This week being a classic example.
I regularly read plenty of other racing blogs and I consciously make an effort to put a comment in their “0 comments” section as I know how disheartening it can feel when you believe nobody is reading. Speaking of which, I don’t appear to have had much interaction with any of you on here for quite some time? As Delia Smith once famously slurred “Where are you? Let’s be havin’ you!”.
