In 2005 I moved to Texas and started networking with different writers and bloggers I met at the SXSW Festival in Austin. Since then, blogging has become one of my favorite forms of "release". In the process, I have created over 10 blogs, most of which have been neglected, as well as engaging in political blogging on sites such as Daily Kos, Barack Obama.com and Democrats.org I moved back to California in the fall of 2008 and went on hiatus from blogging with the exception of my main My Space accounts. I ceased blogging on My Space when Rupert Murdoch bought the site and they changed the format. A few months ago I began the process of copying some of my over 200 authored threads here at Destee.com onto some of my blogger accounts. I now have narrowed my focus to one wordpress blog entitled "Oracle of the Cosmic Journeyman" and a few blogger accounts, the main being the one used in my profile signature. Over the past two month I have been not only blogging more often but updated my blog features and now I monitor my stats on a consistent basis. It is this last aspect that I want to share some blog specifcs. My "rootwork" focuses mainly on Black Genealogy and History, and over the last year I have started to share information relating to African spiritual, cultural and religious traditions. What I find really interesting is my "audience". Here is a list of my "traffic" ranked from the top ten hits. United States, Russia, Germany, France, Netherlands, Ukraine, United Kingdom, China, Brazil, Slovenia. Most of these results are from 2008-2011 when I made only 4 blog posts. More recently, my posts are starting to attract a more diverse audience from countries such as Trinidad and Tobago, Nigeria, Gabon and French Guiana. I initiated a writing workshop a few years ago, which was neglected, and plan to resume that work in the future. In the meantime, I would like to establish a "blog-exchange" network to anyone here who is interested. Its a simple exchange. If you join my blog as a follower, I join your site in exchange. I will also add your site to my "Portal" which will help to increase your hits as well as my own. Increased audience results a greater number of search results. As your traffic increases, and your audience expands, this can also potentially generatead revenue. If you are interested, just follow the link below. HTP!
