Blogging Help plus One Dead Tree

I mean, I'm asking for help or your opinion.
I've been blogging for quite a while.
Since 2009 I think.
After all this time I haven't really decided a niche for myself.
I mean some say that's what you should do.
Write on one subject.
I just write about everyday in the life of me and that has a whole lot of different subjects.
The thing that worries me is that my page views are dropping.
I mean, I never had a huge amount but they have dropped more than half.
I try to write a couple times a week; sometimes more, but it doesn't seem to make a difference!
If anyone out there has any ideas, please tell me!!
Leave me a comment.
I love comments!

For today I want to tell you about my problem of a tall dead pine tree; well actually two!
(Sorry, that's my finger over the lens!)

Maybe you can see the wires going through the tree on this side of the trunk.
They are the main wires that supply electricity to my house!!
I've called a professional tree maintenance guy to come to take the tree down.
He's coming to look at it tomorrow.
I hope this doesn't cost a fortune!!
I can just see me burning the pile of brush in the foreground there, and a spark making that tree go up like a torch!!
Scary stuff.


Don't forget to let me know your opinion about my blogging.


  1. Shirley, I like your posts and all the interesting things you write about. But, I don't see you answering any comments. Maybe people think that you don't care. I try to answer all my comments to let people know that I do care, Just a suggestion. Are you reading other posts and making comments? I do realize that some people will never make a comment so I read there's, but leave no comments
    I love the articles about Dexter and the girls. Good luck with the tree and the tree man can take that down without damaging anything. You don't want lighting to strike that tree and then have it catch on fire.
    Have a terrific weekend.

    1. Thanks for your suggestions Mary. You're right I hardly ever reply to comments but it's a great suggestion. I'll try to do better. I read a fair number of blogs but don't comment a lot. I'll have to get better at that too.

  2. Shirley, I'm no expert. I think your niche is "my life." There are others who blog about their daily life and I find that interesting. I think one way to increase readership is to participate in memes. Again, I am a blogger but not an expert. Hope you get some good feedback that is helpful.

    1. Beth, you're right about the memes. When I was joining those link parties, I did have quite a few more views. Thank you for your suggestions.

  3. Shirley, I come here for YOU. And to tell you the truth, I don't have a lot of activity but I still enjoy telling t like it is...:)JP

    1. You're so sweet JP. I don't do near what I used to do either!
