Some months back I started a new blog My Irish Blog It was my intention to aim the blog at Irish people living in America. It’s quite a big market – possibly to big.
Anyway for the first month or so I wrote most of the articles myself, carried a few youtube songs and waited, and waited and waited – and very few came.
About a week back I decided to change the format – and cut back on the work I was putting into it for very little return – and basically use Google News Alerts to give an overview of what is happening back in Ireland. I’m also adding a GAA (Irish Sports) section – again gathered from Google News Alerts. In addition I take a major story each day and turn it into a headline article, so that it is not all just cut and paste.
What I’d like to know is this “How Long Would You Give A New Blog or Website Before You’d Pull The Plug?”
I do believe there is a market out there for memories, nostalgia, for people wanting to know what is going on back home on ‘The Old Sod,’ it’s just that I don’t seem to have the formula
Anyway feel free to share your opinion and if you want to have a quick look at the blog you’ll find it HERE. If you like any of the articles feel free to leave a comment.
Many thanks for any advice offered.
