Since joining BlogExplosion, I’ve noticed something interesting about surfing it. First, I tend to see many of the same blogs over and over. Second, when I’m actually reading these blogs, by the time I log out all my new credits have been used up by people looking at mine. This leads me to this conclusion:
The only people who see this site through BlogExplosion are the people who are logged in at the same time I am.
If you have a routine where you spend a half hour on BE every evening, or 1 hour every Tuesday, or whatever, chances are the same people are seeing your blog over and over again.
Just to experiment, a few days ago I took 10 minutes late in the day and logged in from work. I don’t think I saw a single familiar blog.
So what’s the answer? Vary your BE routine as much as possible. Don’t assign your spare points when you surf, pick a random time, log in for 1 minute and just assign them. Make a banner and assign points to it the same way. Talk someone into signing up with you as a referrer, and get a share of their points.
Otherwise, you’ll get the same audience every time… and chances are they’re either regular readers by now or they’re tired of seeing you.
I save up unassigned credits and when I won’t be able to surf, I log on and assign them. That gives me a bit of coverage while I’m not on BE.
