Too many social media or too little time?

I almost missed my daily post... geez wouldn't want that to happen!

It's weird how things work out sometimes isn't it?  Yesterday, I lurked around and while cleaning some of my blogs listing, I've realized I didn't use some of the traffic tools the web offers like I did when I first started blogging.  Granted, I'm not blogging with the same passion I once did.  Bacefook ruined it all for most bloggers, I'd say.  We've put faces to avatars, and now we keep in touch through Bacefook.  Weird huh?  

I've been debating if I should come out on Bacefook about this blog.  Most of my friends (and relatives) know I blog, but very few do read me.  For some it is because of the language (I write in English and they only read French), for others it is for lack of interest, or they just don't know about it.  Somehow I like this place being mine, and somewhat incognito, but at the same time I want more readers / comments, so what is a girl to do?

A few minutes ago I received an email from BlogFlux.  I used to use them when I started this gig, back in April 2006.  I had a look at what they now offer, since it had been severely mismanagement which led to the site decaying and becoming a shell of its former glory (as they put it in their email), and when it came to me categorizing my blog I felt stumped.  I don't know what to write, or even how to write, since I post about anything, I vent, bitch, joke around, name it I've done it and will most likely do it again!

What can I do to increase my traffic to this blog?  Post more?  Well, I've been posting daily for the last 21 days, can't really post more than that and, by the way, I can't wait for this month to be over!  I'll keep on posting when I want to rather than because I've committed to doing it daily - that wasn't my brightest idea!

What can I do to make this blog better (besides removing myself!)?  Any suggestion?

I still read your blog, even though i don't keep mine up anymore! Though i agree that the book of face has drawn many bloggers over to the blue and white side. Me included. And also, tumblr and twitter have ruined the art of a well penned post.

I hadn't really considered the role of FB in my lack of blogging, I blamed the podcast, but I suspect you're right. As for improving your blog...I can't think of a thing. I love your blog, and read eagerly, so I wouldn't change a thing. :-)
