I have made enough progress that now I need to address content and contacts. The later is the prickly one, and it comes in two major sub-issues. How do I the word out to people that I am posting, and then how do I let those people know that I have put out a new post? The content issue may be just a matter of my putting in the time, and may also be a driver of letting people know about updates.
I am currently averaging more than one post per day, and if I continue at that rate people (assuming anybody cares) can just get their “daily fix”. Other options include getting them to use RSS, sending out email, using twitter, or some other gimmick to let them know there is something new.
There is also a question of how big each post should be, how small is too small to be worth the look, how big is too much to read at one sitting. I am looking for comments on this. My current guideline is for the word count to approximate 200, with a slight skew toward making larger.
How should I estimate the size of the readership?
