Just a simple post here to say, check out my new weekly blog and leave comments/questions either on this thread or on the blog itself. Just click on my name to get to my profile and to the blog itself. Enjoy! The first series is about being a DM with Evil PC's in the group. And I've already received my first question which I will address either on this thread, or in a future blog post.
The Artist formerly known as JLaurHughes peace.
Second installment of D4rkVision is up for any who wish to take a read of it.
No blog this week, I'm appalled by the lack of interest, comments, or even suggestions for a subject.
Blogs here need work, inasmuch as apparently only staff blogs stay visible for more than a couple hours.
The only advice I can give you is keep blogging and hope people start recognizing that you are updating regularly. Eventually you should get lucky.
People are really only going to see your blog if they befriend you and get noticed of a new blog. The best way to do that is to participate on the boards a lot, make yourself known as a smart guy with a lot of good ideas, and point people to your existing blogs when relevant, and befriend people. Also, read other people's blogs, leave helpful or appreciative comments and ratings. That will make other people want to read your blogs.
Even the staff blogs don't get a lot of traffic. Shelly Mazzanoble's last blog got 9 comments, which seems pretty small to me, and only a handful of votes. I try to comment on or rate any blog I read.
But, with that said, don't be annoying. If it feels like you're participating in threads, just to move traffic to your blog, it becomes a turn-off. It feels insincere. People want to be part of a community; they're not looking to merely be an audience.
One thing I learned early about Blogs is that you generally have to be somebody before anyonewill pay attention to it. Otherwise you're just "John Doe's" opinion on xxxyyy.
Anyway hope some of my rambling helps.
