So many of my readers have contacted me with all kinds of good advice as to what I should do to generate more traffic, improve my website and make it easier to access. And I very much appreciate all the imput. I have good news, I have retained a site administrator to re-vamp and improve accessibility. Please hang with me, help is on the way!!
More than once I have explained I’m not electronically nor mechanically savvy. As a matter of fact my six year old grandson, Prince William, knows more about a computer than I do. When I began writing these articles about four years ago I had a web manager and a team to help me, however, that was expensive and my help was reduced. And no income has been generated via advertisers.
Along with changes in format, I expect to accept advertisers, and plan on selling books from my site. I have over a thousand books stored in boxes, and time to place them in circulation. A collection of children’s books, art books, cookbooks, self-help books, economic books, history, philosophy, and lots of books on health and healing. A few fiction novels, but not many. I will begin listing a few at a time.
After 600 lengthy articles and 4 years of writing, my traffic has already increased. I noticed a jump after I signed onto Facebook about a year ago. I started listing the number of comments, spam and all and now average around a thousand a day. Yesterday was 991 and Monday was one 1,150.
When I began my blogsite, my purpose was two-fold, in the hopes I might reach at least one or two, to motivate an interest in knowing more about the meaning of Freedom. And as my regular readers know, the Philosophy of Freedom is the underlying theme of most of my articles. I’m happy to report, more than one or two have shown a sincere interest in learning more about their Personal Freedom. And my second reason for writing is, I must because it is very carthartic for me to express ideas. And an extra bonus is, I too have learned from interaction with others, and have an improved understanding of the pulse of the general public.
I know many are hurting from the economic crunch this country is currently experiencing and there is a great deal of anger and frustration, over the direction this once Great Country is heading. And that might be a good thing, because we must seek to understand how we got to this place, because as Dr. Phil says: “We can’t change that which we don’t acknowledge.” And many are now stirred to understand and do something about the Crisis we all face, as this country, as we once knew it, is teetering on the verge of collapse. From within without a shot being fired.
And the bottom line is, none of us are entitled to sit back and do nothing about it. We owe it to ourselves and future generations, to understand and act to preserve Individual Freedom and Private Property Rights. Despite the erosion of both, we must re-claim that which was endowed to us by our Creator.
In this connection the next fourteen months will be the most important in our lives, if we expect to re-claim that which has been lost and preserve that which we still have, namely Freedom instead of the bondage of Socialism.
For a time, I seriously considered not writing any more articles after I reached 600, however reflecting upon the response I have received, decided to re-vamp my website and continue on for awhile. Because I type with two fingers, it takes me 3 or 4 hours to write each article. Frequently waking at 4 a.m. and start writing.
Recently ran across this writing titled, “Opportunity.” “With doubt and dismay, you are Smitten. You think there’s no chance for you son? Why, the best books haven’t been written, the best race hasn’t been run, the best score hasn’t been made yet, the best song hasn’t been sung. The best tune hasn’t been played yet. Cheer up because the world is yet young. No chance? Why the world is just eager, for things you ought to create. Its store of true wealth is still meagre. Its needs are incessant and great: Don’t fret and worry faint hearted, the chances have just begun; for the best jobs haven’t been started and the the best work hasn’t been done.” By Berton Braley.
The second President, John Adams said: “We hold that each man is the best judge of his own interests.”
