But it also means that I get more mails and more inquiries about issues. Could I spend my 'blogging time' for the most part on writing posts in the past, no longer. 50% of that time is spend on answering mails and doing research or looking for "stuff" to answer those mails. That's fine too, but while I spend more and more time doing rules, the blog isn't updated. My daily post goal hasn't been met in the last four weeks. Can't see any change in that, unless I accept to spend even more time behind a keyboard.
I've been pestering people I know at the ISAF office, for a link on the rules pages of their website. And been answered they would do it, but it hasn't happened as of yet.. I'm low on the totem-pole, understandable. If it does eventually happen, traffic will increase even more.
One of the things I need, is some sort of introductory page telling visitors what they can find and how. Instead of going trough 200+ post individually. I need to have a more friendly way, to have them navigate trough. I've already made a small start by a couple of directory pages and a page with all posts, searchable by tags. Perhaps I need a directory structure for different topics on the main page. Perhaps I need to increase tags for each post. I'll have a look around how other bloggers deal with this issue.
Some new projects/ideas:
- Pay some attention on 'people skills' in the protest-room, maybe even do something with 'role-playing'
- Talk about my IU-seminar experiences.
- Invite PC-members to write about interesting cases they come across this summer. That means YOU!
- Translate some of the Dutch appeals into English and publish them.
- Do a couple of "back posts" drawing attention to posts I've done in the first couple of months.
- Protest questions and exercises,
- Umpire Calls,
- Links to websites and interesting articles I come across,
- A few editorials.
