Lessons to learn from reactions to loss of life + financial windfall:
Does participation in these carnivals increase traffic? Seems like they might. It also seems like it would bring the “right” readers. Of course you cannot find and keep the “right” readers until you have enough of any kind of reader.
I got curious and put together a survey to see how many readers it takes on average to get the conversations started and start reaching that “right” audience. Now I am trying to find successful bloggers to provide feed-back on how many readers it takes to reach critical mass.
Would you help?
