The Mandatory post: Takeaways from #MyFriendAlexa Season 4

Photo by Emre Kuzu on

Learning from #MyFriendAlexa is the best thing that happens all the month of September. I learnt to stick to a routine. I completed my long pending task of pursuing research on French authors which it is going to help me in my work.

The comments on each blog post were pretty encouraging and it sure supported my research. Appreciation was at its best. I felt that someone there got the real message of publishing the post.

The idea of self-hosting came more than twice and I spoke to people about it. If WordPress is listening, hopefully I should upgrade soon!

Twitter as a medium of sharing is easy and eventful, I would get notifications early morning and my day was made.

Reading Lists were ideally a mixture of parenting, education, entertainment, blogging and much more. I fell in love with the cover photo of a blog, was amazed by the font of a blog, was impressed by the variety a blog could offer, read comments to understand the multiple takeaways from one post. Some blogs addressed social concerns, some talked about festivals, happiness, tips on this and tips on that. The picture/photo/image blogs and the six-word story too were very informative. As some say, a picture can speak a 1000 words, and short sentences are more brief.

What more! The Blogchatter team, tracking our reading list completion, (I actually did that after a mail was sent to catch up on my reading, wrote the names on the list, tracked it on twitter with a tick mark, and only then rested) they sending us mails regularly, updating us on whatsapp, Facebook. Isn’t that for our blog, work together and get your blog going.

My website hits with a nominal 848 grew to 1,570 hits till date.

My Alexa Country Rank is under 25,000.

Merci Beaucoup!

Questy Musings is a musing with a question. What are your take-aways from the My Friend Alexa campaign? Why do you participate? Is it discovering blogs, is it preventing your blog from gathering dust, rust? I participate, I give my thoughts a medium, a voice, an image. Happy questing!

I am taking my blog to the next level with Blogchatter’s #MyFriendAlexa
