I get by with a little help from my friends.

First, some good great news. ^_^ Free2WinGames.com is listed as the Top Gaming Blog on fuelmyblog!!!


AND it's the top blog in "free games" on NetWorked Blogs!! Isn't that awesome? I think it's awesome.

It's awesome!!

Feel free to take a moment and dance in your chair with me. ^_^

All better now? Okay, well here's the not-so-good news. Despite the fact that this blog is slowly creeping up rankings in various directories, the number of daily visitors is staying the same. There was a HUGE rush when Pogo linked to the Poppit! review, but that's completely died out now. Current average is 43 visits a day, and the numbers are going down, not up. =(

Here's what I'm doing to try and get more people interested:
  • Posting in appropriate facebook groups (Slingo guides to Slingo fans, etc)
  • Tweeting links a few times each day
  • Looking for places to guest post
  • Commenting on gaming blogs. NOT spam. Spam is bad. >_<
  • Picking one post each day and using all of the Share features on it.
In other words, I'm not sitting on my thumbs and wondering why people aren't flocking to my blog. ^_^ I know that it takes time and effort. I knew that when I started blogging.

But what I didn't know, (and this may sound naive) is how important you are. You are more than "just" a reader! You cheer me on in Twitter when I get discouraged. You help me dig into games and figure out how the scoring works. You post comments to let me know that you learned something new. Or maybe you say nothing at all and just share a link with a friend.

The point is, you are important! A blogger without readers is pretty useless. *^_^* But it's also hard to keep blogging without an income, and that's why I need your help.

If you remember from the first Sunday Reader, I mentioned that one of my goals is to get sponsors. Well, I kinda need more traffic in order for any sites to consider a sponsorship. ^_^ And yes, you can help! See the green toolbar at the bottom of the page? There's a button with a plus sign and says "Share."

When you click "Share," a little window slides up.

Clicking any of those options will open a new window for you. If you click "Facebook," a window will pop open with a link to the post already on it. You can add a message if you want, or hit send and the link is published to your wall. You don't have to leave the blog to share posts! ^_^ I really like that feature.

You can use as many share features as you like! The one thing that I ask is that you only do this for posts that either A: You really like. Or B: You think someone might find it useful. As much as I need traffic, I don't want you to plug a post out of pity.

If you're feeling super-helpful, here are some other things you can do. ^_^ In the sidebar there are a bunch of little graphics under the "Plug me!" category. The top 5 graphics are all sites where you can either vote for my blog, submit a link, or leave a rating. The more votes/ratings I get, the higher I'll be ranked and there's a better chance people will see me. I've met some neat bloggers through fuelmyblog and BlogCatalog. I highly recommend them.

I really want to keep writing, but I need some help. If things don't improve, eventually I'll have to cut down on posts, and/or shut down entirely. I really, really don't want that to happen. There's a lot of potential here. I just need a little help from you, my friend. ^_^
