I’ve been writing for Performancing since the beginning of June 2008. Since then, I’ve created a sizable chunk of content for the site. Some of the articles I have written have been wildly successful while most have not. For the most part, I’ve stayed away from discussing monetization tips, strategy, what works and what doesn’t. Back in July, I let you know that change was on the horizon for Performancing.com but since then, not much has changed at least in terms of the site itself. There have been quite a few changes behind the scenes, specifically dealing with personnel. If all goes well, Performancing will sport a new look soon, and many structural changes will be taking place. The forums will be revamped and the massive archive will be much easier to browse through.
In that post regarding change, I had asked what it was you ‘the readers’ wanted most out of the site. No surprise that many of you wanted tips, tricks, techniques, methods, etc dealing with monetization. Hard shoes to fill when the writer has no interest in those subjects. My hope is that at some point in the future, Performancing can bring on an individual who specializes in the area of monetization.
In terms of keeping with the tagline ‘Helping Bloggers To Succeed‘ I can share tips, tricks, techniques, all about blogging. I can review sites, services, plugins, themes, publishing platforms if that is what you want. I come from a background of working for others to make money, not working for myself. So, I can provide strategies for freelancing, suggestions, techniques, how to get a blogging job etc. I can discuss a lot of different things but monetization isn’t one of them.
So to bring this full circle, I’d like to know your honest opinion with regards to the content I’ve produced. Do you hate the job board posts I publish each week? Which posts do you enjoy the most? Which do you hate? Is Perfcast a waste of your time? Is reading my content a waste of your time?
These are all important questions for me in terms of how I shape the content I write for Performancing in the future. So, instead of guessing, I figured the best thing I can do is ask you.
