Guys, guys! Thanks for the support yesterday! 300 page views, tripling my old record of a meager 100. If your computer screen was fixated on my lovely blog both days, I'd like to thank you personally. Not only have you made me more appreciative, but every new person reading reflects remarkably on the blog. And, to seemingly celebrate my success, Google went and dramatically transformed the Blogger interface to be more streamlined - probably to be compete with the growth of other services like Wordpress. Any Blogger user recognizes what I'm talking about.
Gradually, I'll be expanding the amount of topics to feature on Volatile Mode. For the last eight months I've almost exclusively pandered on about the video game industry, and that won't likely change. But I want many people to share in the gratification of reading each post that I have in writing them. Systemically (over a couple of months, not instantly), I'll be mentioning a far higher number of topics revolving around tech, blogging and SEO. Just to test the waters and see which posts gain more interest.
Reading up on the process of blogging and expanding one's brand online has opened up a web of interest I never knew I had. Previously, I thought advertising was boring and bland, never even giving the subject a remote thought. But now, web marketing is accelerating in popularity, and frankly, I'd love to be a part of it. People have made millions helping start-up blogs, claiming to be masters on fully utilizing social networking and such. That's the fascinating part. The Internet is slowly transforming our lives and humanity is finally capitalizing on the quick migration of information worldwide through blogging and other platforms.
For my subscriber base, don't worry. I won't be abandoning my one true passion: video games. I'll still feature a post mostly daily about the game industry, and this wouldn't heed true more with the amazing lineup coming this Christmas and into next year.
For the subscription base, I recommend this being a perfect time to start your own blog. Not only use the tips and tricks I'll provide forthcoming, but to also learn the process and immerse yourself in the future potential of the platform.
Anyway, it's early and I have a big day today. A post will be up later on about video games; that I can promise. Hallelujah!
