Poll: Should Impurest's Guide to Animals Blog come to an end? (24 votes)

Yes, it was a good run but it's time to end it 13%
No, it's still enjoyable keep going 79%
Never Read It/Don't Care (Please Specify) 8%

I ask the question in this forum title because numbers of views and comments have, for the majority of recent issues, dropped to low amounts. While I never expected an avalanche of either, it seems the interest of the majority of the readers has declined or been lost entirely. While I am gracious to the few loyal readers who still comment every week, it would be nice to know what the general public think, mostly to know if the time and effort but into each issue is appreciated ect.

For those who have read and say 'no, keep going' suggestions on how to draw more readers would be appreciated.

Many Thanks

Impurest Cheese

@impurestcheese: Anytime, and it's not like you're writing some obscure stuff every single week.

Everybody likes animals. The title alone should attract people. If not, then that's their loss. *shrugs*

Really if numbers have dropped then just take a break and come back in a few months

@captainmarvel4ever: What I want to know is why the numbers have dropped. What exactly has gone wrong with the project and how to fix it.

@rey_everdeen: I guess, but you're right most people do like animals

@laflux: @xwraith: @rey_everdeen: Cool thanks guys

Any suggestions on how I can attract more readers

Part of me wants to say do more well known animals, though personally I like the more abstract ones.

I think you shouldn't put so much weight on the numbers, if you enjoy writing these guides you should keep doing so for yourself. These kinds of things comes in waves, sometimes a bunch of people dissappear only for new fans to come along later. It is great that you want to do what you can to attract more readers and make people enjoy your writing though, I just don't think the numbers should affect whether you keep doing something you enjoy or not.

As for me personally, I like your guides the way they are, the reason I stopped commenting was because I left this site for a while - and I still am not around as much as I used to be. But I always make sure to read them when I see them.

@bruxae: Thanks just been noticing this massively declining trend. It's also kind of annoying that there are some stupid threads such as "Would you say racial term Y for x amount of currency" gets so many views while my hard work gets so lityle.

@laflux: Yeah I'm pretty sure if it was all tigers and pandas I'd get comments through the roof.

@cgoodness: So why is there a recession in traffic? Seems a little odd.

I'm sorry I don't have a way to attract more readers. I have a topic thread of my own that was a hit for a while, but it's died off a lot (though yours requires a LOT more work than mine usually). People are fickle I suppose, I dig your stuff, I'll just remember to comment more.

@impurestcheese: I haven't heard of it till now (college and such so I don't spend much time on the site in general), but I just checked it out and it's really impressive! I'ma binge it.

Maybe hold a poll every month or so to see interest in different animals?

Though I don't always comment I do always read as I have an interest in zoology (obviously nowhere near your level).

End it and I'll end you. :)

@impurestcheese: Um, NO. ;) ...You know the site experiences dips, especially after a major change. The GS merger put people off, because they couldn't get logged in, had to merge accounts, etc. It'll pick back up.

Pay no attention to the roth behind the pipxe- it is not up to you! You are hereby eternally bound to your Guide For Animals, and must post new animals weekly from now until the end of time! ...time! ...time! ...time! ;)
