Response to My Post on Quitting Blogging

Image from tent.blogger.com

Last week, I posted an article about a Fellow Blogger who quit blogging after three years. She blog in the same niche( Life in US and in the Philippines) as mine. She quit because she wanted to devote full time on her nursing studies. I was hoping, she would at least blogged part time, since she is a good writer and I enjoyed reading her blogs. One of my readers commented on my posting and ask me this question?

"How about you, are you planning to continue with your blogs for the long run? I hope you continue to churn out more great reading. It would be a sad day when you decide to retire from blogging. May you have more power to write in your blogs".

I responded that quitting is not in my plans for the moment. One of the reasons why I will not quit now, is due to comments from readers like you who had been inspiring me to blog everyday even in my "down" days.

This reader is only a few out of the many readers I have that comment on my blogs. I know that I have about 50 to 60 readers per day. But I am getting comments from a only a few readers. This is discouraging because I blog not to earn money but for fun. I am hoping that my blogs are informative, interesting and readers enjoyed it. The only way I can be assured that my blogs are useful is to hear more comments from my readers.

You do not need to write long comments, all I want is one sentence. Yes, I do read your blogs and I found it informative( interesting or boring ). If you have any suggestions for improvement OR TOPICS that you want me to write, let me know.

Several of my readers wanted me to write about the drug development process, since I used to work for FDA. I am now drafting two articles on the subject and I will post it as soon as I finalized it. I hope to hear from many of you soon. Have a Good Day or Night to All. From your Grand Pa Blogger!

You write great articles, nothing compares to it. The problem is you have limited material, yours is a tiny site compared to the huge and more popular websites. You may need an army of writers similar to them to generate more daily articles. But then you move into a different niche, which is more competitive, and more headaches come with it. If your site and conscience allows, you may write more on subjects such as religion/faith, sex, violence and politics. I don't know how they will fit in the format of your blogs. Have a beautiful day.

Hi Scott, thank you for your feed back. I do not feel qualified to write on politics ,religion/faith or violence. But I have a little knowledge about sex. However, if you notice about 99% of my articles are based on my life's experiences. My sex life is not that exciting except for a few transgression in my younger days. So the subject of sex is out. I leave that to the experts. I am getting too old to compete with the professional bloggers, so I will continue writing in my limitted niche and hopefully get more feed back from readers like you to give me inspiration to continue blogging. Cheers!
