Yep, I started with copying down a couple of sentences to keep handy for looking at occasionally. Ended up saving the whole thing! All good stuff.

That is a great article. I have become so lazy and really often don't know what more to talk about. My world is very small here. Nothing ever changes. Or so it seems

Have you tried writing about popular nearby attractions? Perhaps also about yearly events or local festivals.

Mine most likely are because I blog about stuff happening in my small City - which is probably very boring to most people. Every now and again, i fid something that does bring people to my site - as in a blog about a living history program about a WV nurse PO W in WWII. That one gets hits at least - years later.

and Like I say, get photos NOW for next time. You want to promote these events, attractions BEFORE it happens.
I got some great photos yesterday (plenty of fiddles, banjos, hippies and more, even a guy wearing a skirt and top hat).
I asked guests from last weekend (first time B&B goers if they took any photos on their hike, I would be pleased to share them, and they did:)

Yes Brian, I have indeed done that. I often feel like the local chamber of commerce. Well, not so much now but in the beginning I would have links to businesses and events in my blog posts and I have a lot of hits. I wish though that people would actually interact more. I answer every comment as soon as I am made aware of it, etc. I like conversing with my peeps, it's just that they seem to be afraid to post things.
Anyway, I am very busy here and have not posted as frequently as they say one should in order to keep the momentum going and keeping things from going stale.
It's hard to keep up with all that one should in order to stay relevant, isn't it?

Yup, my blog is pretty much picture driven. People don't have time to read

Yep - I get lots of hits. The whole area goes to my site to find out where and when things are happening in the area - either to my blog or to my Happenings page. Unfortunately, they do not book, just look.
I do not do comments because it I do, I only get smarmy scam crap that I am not going to allow on my site.
