Reader Discussion: Long Term Goals
A couple of weeks ago, I was asked a question regarding the Reader Discussion Sessions by two different people. One person asked why I hadn’t done one in a while and the other asked why I bothered trying to get input from readers. Naturally, I’m hoping to kill answer two questions with one stone post.
No matter how long I’ve been reading blogs, it always impresses me when a bunch of readers get together and make a truly amazing thread of comments that’s more valuable than the post they are discussion. I think this has happened a couple of times here on this blog and things like ProBlogger’s community workshop or Shoemoney’s question and answer sessions are good examples of the phenomenon as well. While Blogging Experiment has quite a bit of growing left to do in many areas, I think we already have a large number of very knowledgeable readers and it would be incredibly foolish of me to not try and tap into that wealth of information.
As for why I hadn’t initiated one of these sessions in a while, it was simply an oversight on my part. To remedy that situation, I’d like to open up the discussion today with a short but far from simple question.
What are your long term goals for your blog?
