You know I report to you current trends in blogging.
One of them is to ask your readers what they want to see on your blog.
Our recent guest author Ryan Biddulph shared a technique he uses on his blog we will implement as well.
He asks his readers what they’d like to see blog posts about.
So, today, I am asking.
What articles would help you? What articles would you like to see on this blog?
What topics would you like to see Mostly Blogging cover more of?
What blog post topics would help you the most on your blogging journey?
I am here to help you with whatever blogging struggles you have.
Please let me know in the comments section what articles would help you the most.

Have you written and published your year-end blog post?
If yes, you are in good company.
All over the blogosphere bloggers are writing their goals for 2017.
Instead, I am far more interested in evaluating what blogging tips worked for me in 2016, so I can replicate and build on them in 2017.
Those are my goals for the new year. In order to meet them, I have to analyze last year’s factors that resulted in high page views.
In 2015’s year-end post, How to Create Blog Content Your Readers Will Love– Guaranteed, I insisted you need to vary your content.
Variety of content = engaged readers = new subscribers = loyal readership.
A year has passed. Do I still feel variety is crucial to blogging success?
This post will examine my top five best-performing blog posts of 2016 to see if variety played a factor and what other factors contributed to the posts ranking in the top five.
By the end of this article, you will be able to copy these blogging tips so that you, too, can see high page views.
Did you think last week’s publication schedule was erratic?
Due to technical difficulties beyond my control, you didn’t receive Tuesday, October 4’s post, 8 Smart Ways to Promote Your Latest Post and Receive Traffic, so I am sending the article to you now that the technical difficulties are resolved.
Did you know being a blogger is trendy?
According to the guest author, Vincent Hill, “Blogging is the newest trend nowadays.”
My post 7 Ways Blogging Helps You Better Navigate Life explains you are better at dealing with life than people who live outside of the blogosphere.
According to my guest author, you are trendy as well.
Vincent explains 8 ways you can capitalize on that trend in order to woo visitors to your blog and increase your blog traffic.
Vincent’s tips are not only trendy, he makes them sound downright fun.

In my post 7 Effective Ways to Avoid Drowning in Emails, I quoted four bloggers who responded to D.G. Kaye’s spin-off post of Hugh Roberts’ Are You Letting Your Blog Get Out of Control?, but I excluded his quote.
Am I rude? A sexist, perhaps? (I quoted all women.)
There was a reason I didn’t include Ralph Willier‘s comment along with the others. Ralph does not feel the time pinch the other bloggers fretted about.
Ralph, a successful blogger with an engaged community, has so much free time, he found time to come here today to explain his system for saving time and still getting blogging tasks accomplished.
What percentage of people who you network with follow you back?
1 out of every 2? Less?
For the sake of this post, let’s assume 50% of the people you network with follow your blog.
You would have to network with twice as many followers as you would want to subscribe to your blog.
Please consider this a follow-up to my recent post, How to Quickly Get 3,000 New Blog Followers.
My guest author Eric Schlehlein explained how he managed to get 3,052 new blog followers in less than eighteen months.
In order to get 3,000 new followers, if you have a 50% follow-back rate, you would have to network with 6,000 people.
If you are going to get 3,000 new blog followers, quickly or otherwise, you have to know where to find them. This post will tell you where to look.
However, before making that decision, you should be aware of the advantages and disadvantages of self-hosting.
To celebrate, in the comments section, you are encouraged to self-promote.
Introduce your blog to the other guests at the party. Tell the readers about your blog, and post a link to your favorite post, a recent post, your About page, your blog link, or anything you like.

My apologies to William Shakespeare.
I stole a quote from his famous play Hamlet and tweaked it in my headline.
Would someone unfamiliar with his play understand the quote?
Would people unfamiliar with the colloquialisms of each other’s culture understand their blog posts?
Should you use idioms because as a strong writer you should have a “voice,” or should you veer away from them out of fear your readers won’t understand the expressions native to your country?
Recently, I have been writing about how bloggers can use StumbleUpon to drive traffic to their blogs even though WordPress discontinued its StumbleUpon sharing button:
What if I told you that Fiction Writer Sue Coletta discovered a way to put the button back?
Yes, it’s true. WordPress.com users can once again have a StumbleUpon sharing button if they follow Sue’s instructions, and the instructions in those of her commenters.
Sue begins her post with the importance of StumbleUpon as a way to get traffic to your blog and ends with how to get the StumbleUpon sharing button back.
For WordPress.com users who would like to have the StumbleUpon sharing button back on their site, here are the instructions. Theyy are at the bottom of the post:
