I started this blog one year ago., and it’s time for a little reflection, I think.
My goal was to write something, every day, even if it was just a silly story on a blog. I haven’t posted every single day, but as this is my 243rd post out of 261 possible weekdays, I came pretty darn close.
Five people read my first post. 206 read yesterday’s. (A record 504 people visited the site on April 7th.) That first month, I got 70 hits; now I never get less than a hundred in a day, even if I don’t post.
My original focus was on describing what it was like to be a PA. (Sure, I’d sometimes go on a rant about politics or the news, but I basically stuck with the PA thing.) Exactly six months into the blog, someone decided I was some kind of expert and asked me a question; now I get several questions a week.
A few friends have told me they’d like me to go back to the funny stories, and give advice less often. So, I wonder what you, the reader, thinks. Am I not funny enough anymore? Should I give out more advice? Am I striking a good balance now?
Some of my most popular posts include:
Hm. They seem evenly split between advice-giving and general PA nonsense. It’s hard to judge what’s really capturing my audience’s imagination.
In fact, I’m not even sure who my audience is. Other production assistants? Below the line crew? Writers? Bored housewives in the midwest? Who the hell are you people?
