Upcoming One Year Blog Anniversary: Making A Better Morning Erection

One Year Blog Anniversary: Making A Better Morning Erection

Of course I mean making a better morning erection blog. I started Morning Erection on September 28th, 2009 just to see if I could blog for a full year. Although I didn’t blog consistently for a few months because April was sick, I still made it a full year without calling it quits. I still have a six weeks but I want to pat myself on the back now.

I’m not much for writing and I find it hard to believe how many friends I’ve made and how many people stop by daily and leave comments. Thank you. I need to thank April for ‘knowing’ that I could accomplish this goal. I am very happy with the posts, the visitors, and the comments, however I am always wanting to make things better.

In the past I have tried to make my blog as interactive as I could. I asked questions, composed polls, and invited guest bloggers. If you would indulge me once more; I want to know what you think I could do to make Morning Erection a better blog (no, I’m not changing the name). I’ve already been asked to bring back guest blogging. I would love to, but I need people willing to blog.

I have stayed away from most controversial subjects like politics, religion, homosexuality, and abortion but do you really want to know what I think about social issues? I am very opinionated but I don’t like to offend. I am querying you, the visitors. Whether you visit frequently or if this is your first trip here; what do you like or dislike about Morning Erection?

One of my friends told me if it ain’t broke don’t fix it but she’s a ‘glass half empty’ type of person. I’m for improving where and when I can. Help me build a better blog so I can feel good about going into a second year. Thanks for all your support and help this past year.

I found a blogger who is kind enough to guest blog for the month of September. I was attracted to her site because of the poetry, but I cannot promise poetry will be a part of her post here. Her name is Cherlyn Cochrane and her site, Over A Cup Of Coffee. This is my first guest blogger since Kari Cheng in June. Please mark your calendar, September 4, 2010 and stop back to read her post. Also visit her site before her post. I like it a lot and so might you.

    Tom, sorry I haven’t been here in ages. I haven’t updated by blog either but congrats on almost reaching an entire year. You might get more readers if some of your posts were more controversial. I’d like to know and I promise to stop back more often if you include some topics like death penalty, same-sex marriage, abortion, etc.

      Judy, I can be controversial, but my thoughts are not your thoughts and I’m bound to ruffle a few feathers and lose a few online friends.

    Congrats on the near blogiversary :) From all that I’ve read of your blog, I’m not surprised it’s lasted this long and has so many readers – it’s amazing!

    Thanks again for the kind words for the guest post! I did want to point out though that my name is spelt wrong (Don’t worry, everyone spells my name and says it wrong haha) – it’s spelt “Cherlyn”; you were close though!

    I haven’t read all your posts yet, but you’ll probably be seeing more comments from me plaguing your posts (sorry in advance!)

      I do apologize. I fixed it however I also spelled it incorrectly on my last comment on your site. Could you please fix that for me. Gracias!

    congrats on your one year of blogging! I hope you will continue to write great posts. (you’ve powerful describing skills) and I will always be your loyal fan. :D
    I agree with Rogue Hero, how about displaying a couple of posts in a page?
    Anyway, have a nice day!
    best wishes,

      Jia, I will do just that when I learn how to do it! I look forward to your continued visits.

    Hey Tom!

    Congratulations on your nearing blogoversary!

    It can really be a pain on your schedule to blog. That’s what I also went through when I started; you will really need a lot of patience to stick it through.

    Suggestions? Maybe you could employ a front page that shows a number of your latest posts, instead of the single post per front page scheme. It can really be difficult plowing through your latest content. Maybe three posts per front page? Second, how about a sidebar with links to your categories and tags so it would be easy to look for content that your readers are interested in?

    That’s all I can think of now. I’ll leave some more if I can think up of others.

    Again, congratulations!

      Rogue|Hero, I think I am going to employ a few of your suggestions. I wish I knew how to just put a few posts on the front page. That sounds great. I’m also rolling out a change in theme on September 28, which is the real anniversary date of the blog. Thanks for your suggestions.

      • #12 by Rogue|Hero on August 25, 2010 - 7:01 PM

        Hey Tom!

        About the settings for putting some posts on the front page, just go to Settings > Reading > “Blog pages show at most”. Just enter the number of posts that you want to show.

        Hope that helped! :D
