Are you being served?

Blog I've been blogging for five years now (I started on LiveJournal), and until today, it never occurred to me to ask my readers what they liked (or worse, didn't like) about the blog.

Why am I thinking along these lines?  I've heard via the grapevine that the Sisters In Crime Bowker survey is going to tell authors where blogs rank for typical readers--and it isn't going to be happy news.

After blogging for five l-o-n-g years (you wouldn't believe how tough it is to come up with something to say five days a week), my "numbers" (that is, the people who actually come by to visit and/or comment) are terribly low.  Lorna may have a lot of book readers, but not many of them visit her web site or visit the blog(s).  That's discouraging.

Is blogging a good use of an author's time?

Survey says I really don't know.  But I hope the readers of this blog will give me some insight.
Therefore, I'm asking you to take a few minutes to fill out a survey to let me know how I'm doing.

Just click this link:  Lorna/Lorraine's Blog Survey.

Thank you.

(I will now go bite my nails.)
