Good and Bad

Town Dancer along with the other blogs in our blogosphere is now moving along at a nice slow pace. We are in a plateau with over 400 total average hits per day in our dance blogosphere (12000 per month) we are now pretty close to the Law of Diminishing Returns.

"It's not about who stays real in your face. It's about who stays real behind your back."
However our blogs are still young and growing. These are not newsletters. Our blogs are much more current. In order to transfer them into social media we must have other "outside" input. Actually it is "inside" input from our friends and neighbors in our immediate dance world. We get too little, and then of course the max is the Guest Author.

For now all we can hope for is, to get a little email information now and, yes, your viewpoint is important.  And then of course. the big bonus, the group picture of six to eight people in a fun dance. Wow! That really hits the maximum of reader/dancers. Some do not want to share, it is their privilege. Yes, I know, it may be illegal or something.

With enough steady contributors we can try to convince two or three to be Guest Authors. We can help them learn the ropes. Then they can blog whenever they wish. And within our parameters write what they wish and about whoever they wish, without a "pardon me" or "go to hell" to anyone. Just get in, write, and get out, all on your own.

Blogging is new and we are still learning including myself. With two Guest Authors I believe each blog could go over 100 average hits per day. This implies that people from the neighbor islands and even around the Pacific will be reading those blogs. Eventually with proper feedback, there will be a wealth of dance information exchange among the Pacific Islanders.

Pub's Side Note: Blogs are more personal, direct and more current communication, They leave an opening for comments in each blog and they are receptive to more formal answers and opinions in the blog itself. The hits go through the ceiling. Real Social Media is much different than anything we have come across before.
