Hello to all! Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and good night, wherever you are on Earth. I hope you are all well.
I am truly grateful to everyone who’s decided to follow the blog. There are so many blogs like “The Writer’s Corner” out there and with all sorts of goals that it can be a bit of a challenge to build & maintain reader interest. I look at this like the amount of choices we have as consumers in this day and age: there are so many blogs out there trying to grab our attention that it can get hard to choose. Still, it gives me a lot of comfort to know that people enjoy the content enough that they want to get an update every month for every new poem that is posted.
The original purpose of the blog has been to make weekly postings of poetry every Sunday. Recently, I’ve decided (albeit slowly) to expand into story-writing. It’s still a work in progress for me. And yet, nothing in life ever comes to us so simply.
Someone I’ve known since I was young told me this: a blog needs to be super simple so that people can enjoy reading what you have. Judging by how the follower base has grown, I’d say I’ve managed to do just that in the last few months. With this being said, though, something within has compelled me to post every night since Sunday, March 11th. I hope you’ve enjoyed what’s been posted so far on a nightly basis and I hope to continue posting new content. However, I fear this current rate of production is unsustainable and that I might run out of ideas…
This being said, in order to sustain this production over the long run, I would love to hear from you. Let me know what you want to see on the blog, whether you’re enjoying the content on the blog (and if not, keep it constructive – We’re all human, here!). Also – and I can’t stress this enough – if you want to become a guest poster or a regular contributor, please feel free to contact me! I have a contact page on my website with a form you can use to reach out. My vision for this blog is that I’m not holding a monopoly on the posts. I would love to have other writers come and showcase their writing “brand” on “The Writer’s Corner”.
I would love to expand “The Writer’s Corner”, but the truth is that there are real-world commitments I have to keep, just as I’m sure there are commitments for you too. That being said, crossposting on each other’s blog is the easiest way to maintain content. If you follow me and post on “The Writer’s Corner”, I would be more than happy to reciprocate. I want to build a positive writing community around (and with) this blog. I hope you do too! We are all writers; we are all in this art together!
Thank you! I hope to hear from you soon!
