Monday Status Update – Week 10

will_alan_site_10The limerick project is continuing with #tweet week. This week will focus on the trending topics of the day and see how this impacts traffic and other analytics. I’ll recap the Monday through Friday releases on this site weekly. As always you can keep up with the daily releases on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/wastor64.

Last week saw the launch of a new series of poems; the Amanda, written in iambic tetrameter. One of these days I’m actually going to figure out just what the hell that is. I also posted the Lynda Carter essay, one #toplessTuesday tanka graphic poem, a Friday limerick recap, and of course the Monday status update.

So this is the current content pattern; Monday Status Update, Topless Tuesday Tanka, Wednesday “Something I Find Sexy” essay, and at least one poem on Thursday, looks like it will help to keep me on track.

As always, chime in with your comments and thank you for following along!

Monday – Status Update

will_alan_site_10Did anybody else notice that I’m starting week two already a day behind schedule? No. Ok, then.

This is the second week of the new year. I am kicking off #newbride week, an irreverent look at the blush, and not-so-blushing brides. I’ll recap the Monday through Friday releases on this site weekly. As always you can keep up with the daily releases on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/wastor64.

I’ve been making a list and checking it twice. Well, actually I’ve been looking back at 2014. Last January this blog had thirty three posts and forty followers. Over the course of the year I’ve added one hundred and twenty nine posts, some good, some great! And I thank you for adding one hundred and thirty eight followers. As the content grew 345% followers grew 391%.

The summer seems to have been productive with double digit growth rates in both content and followers. September however showed the largest gains, twenty one new posts netted twenty four new followers.

Monday – Status Update – November Increases

Autumn Status Update

Its week 49 of 52, damn, we are in the final weeks left in this year! As far as the #limericks project goes, things are on course. I am kicking off #mrsclaus week, an irreverent look at the upcoming Christmas season. I’ll recap the Monday through Friday releases on this site weekly. As always you can keep up with the daily releases on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/wastor64. I’ve set a goal of doubling my twitter followers through this project. I’m also looking now at setting ‘engagement’ goals through the analytics.

This week the top ten will be celebrating Ms Britney Spears as its her birthday tomorrow. Our essay will feature Miss Scarlett Johansson and a discussion on repetition.

Its Monday, and that’s status update day, but its also the first of the month. I often take a look at analytics on the first of the month and see how I’m doing on various social media. The past month has seen an increase of tweets (up 59%) and an increase in twitter followers (up 41%), and the blog has increased by 18 posts in November (up 14%) and I’ve welcomed 13 new followers (up 9%), and I thank you each and all.

Monday – Status Update – Site Stats Spike

Autumn Status Update

Its week 48 of 52, four weeks left in this year! As far as the #limericks project goes, things are on course. I am kicking off #thanksgiving week, an irreverent look at the upcoming orgy of food, then shopping. I’ll recap the Monday through Friday releases on this site weekly. As always you can keep up with the daily releases on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/wastor64. I’ve set a goal of doubling my twitter followers through this project. I’m also looking now at setting ‘engagement’ goals through the analytics.

This week the top ten will be celebrating thanksgiving as well, and Wednesday another essay will be posted so watch for a nice picture of Scarlett Johansson.

I’m still working on a title for the new project. I’m thinking “Objects in the Rear-view Window”, or ” The Past Approaches with Stealth”. I have to think of something catchy other than “Do Me My Friend’s Daddy” lol.

Also.. watch for it on Smashwords… I am in the process of putting the Caitlin story together and formatting it for distribution.

As for last week, the site stats took a real spike on Friday following the release of the Diana series poem. I think the traffic spike was due to a formatting change on the tweet announcing the posting on the blog. I will be putting together another poem, perhaps a Julia sonnet and formatting the tweet with similar hash-tags and so if I can replicate the traffic.

Monday – Status Update

Autumn Status Update

Its week 45 of 52, (less than seven weeks left in this year!) and its #blondes week on the limericks project. This week’s limericks will all be focused on sexy blondes but its the images that I’m focused on. There appears to be an anomaly with the twitter analytics and I’m using the limerick’s images to investigate it further. I’m sure I’ll be posting the results of that investigation here. So stay tuned for that. I’ll recap the Monday through Friday releases on this site weekly. As always you can keep up with the daily releases on my twitter feed: https://twitter.com/wastor64.

Last week was not productive one here at the Will Alan blog;  I put together another ‘‘Tuesday Top Ten’ item, my list of the Top Ten Halloween costumes, and I posted the Friday limerick roundup. I didn’t post any poems or essays, and I did not release another episode of the weekly serial. I really do need to take a good hard look at that piece and see what I can do to lengthen it, and make it more relevant to erotic fiction and just make it a better story. I’m thinking that if I make the segments larger and more ‘encapsulated’, I will be able to maintain a focus on quality.
