What Am I To You?

I was reading a recent list: how to be an effective blogger. I’m sorry for not remembering where I saw the list, I am travelling and as such my computer life exists in snatched moments across a multitude of machines.
List normally aren’t of interest to me, save to kill a few moments and wonder why the human race seems so interested in lists.

One thing did stick out for me though – the mention of finding a focus and deciding upon a theme or subject for blogging to ensure that you build an audience.

For the most part I treat this blog as a kind of dairy crossed with a voice – this is what I’m doing, this is what I did, this is what I’m thinking being the usual pattern.

I don’t really kid myself into thinking that I have a following beyond my wife, my brother in law and a handfull of Chinese marketing bots, and really I’m just writing because I enjoy it.

Should I be more foccussed?

What would people want or expect from the blog?

As someone trying to establish themselves as a comic book writer, would a lean towards this be of more benefit? Should I start including more reviews and interviews and the like as well as mentions of my own work?
Should it remain a personal site, somewhere to post my own musings?

I await the answers from my wife, my brother in law and my Chinese bots...

I'm looking for harmony. In the words of the great Brooklyn poet, Diamond:

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune

Peace & Love,

What's ironic is that I just realized that you've been blogging more. Patrick mentioned it, so I decided to check up on it. Sorry that 1/3 of your readership has been off duty. I will resume reading now.
