Have any of you asked yourself that question? I am sure some have and unfortunately some have moved on to other sites for one reason or another. So, let me tell you a bit about why I am still writing here. I signed into Blog Bourne because I knew Kyla Matton Osborne. I knew if she had put her faith into a site, there was a good reason. At that time, I knew nothing about this site nor anyone that ran it.
I looked around and read a lot of the posted information and I asked Kyla questions. Probably so many, I got annoying, but she answered them all and directed me to where I could read about other things I asked about. I liked what I saw and I began to believe in what was happening at Blog Bourne. Mike and John have a vision of how they want the site to be and it is a good vision.
Sites Come and Go
I have been doing this a long time, so I have seen many sites come and go. Some of you were probably on some of those sites that disappeared for one reason or another also. Mike appears to be very savvy about how a site should operate and what it will take to make and keep it a stable site, as it begins to grow.
I respect that. Plus, it is exciting to watch as this site goes from bare bone existence to a site with a well-known and respected name on this mass internet highway. And yes, I believe it can and will become a huge success, because of Mike and John’s vision for it.
Site Owners Need to Care about Members
Since I have been on the site, I mostly talked to Kyla about things. Unfortunately, Kyla is not with us at present. So I began to message Mike with questions and for assistance. He always responded and answered my questions. Hence I will tell you a story:
I had some issues going on between my computer and the site. I messaged Mike for help. It took a few days of back and forth communication. I am not a very technical person but he stuck it out and explained things to me as I asked. He worked from his end and I worked from mine and eventually, we got my problem resolved.
That showed me he cared about the site members too. I know he is very busy maintaining the site, yet he took time to help me. That’s what it takes to operate a good site. You have to have a good vision in mind for the site and you have to care about the members that log into your site. I think those who run Blog Bourne have that covered pretty well.
Members Need to Help a Site Grow
I also think that if the site owners have a good vision and business plan, it is also up to the members to help out as best as they too. After all, the site can’t grow if members aren’t writing, right? That is our contribution to the site for all of the hard work the site owners have put into creating it.
And that is why I am still writing here. I believe it is a good place and will become a much better place as it continues to grow. I have faith that as the site grows and the revenue becomes better, we will all be able to see our coins turn into money. Maybe not enough to call ourselves rich, but I am just a writer…I never envisioned myself being rich anyway.
