MOFO 2008: The Maruja Open Forum Year 2

21 03 2008

I have this feeling that my blog has come into a crossroad, that I should decide which direction to take in order to improve my blog and hopefully increase readership. Unlike last year though, I needed YOUR input and suggestions as to how would you like the Empress Maruja blog be served.

I have written a questionnaire available in three languages. All you have to do is to leave a comment with your answers. It would definitely help how my blog will improve.

Please answer the questionnaire after the jump…

1) Should Empress Maruja write in a single language?
* Dapat bang magsulat si Empress Maruja sa iisang wika?
* Patok ba sa takilya chever kung raytaru si Empress Maruja sa solong splukam?

2) If yes, what language should Empress Maruja concentrate?
* Kung sang-ayon, sa anong wika dapat magtuon ng pansin ni Empress Maruja?
* Kung palanggana, aneking kasplukam ang dapat tutukan ni Empress Maruja?

3) What do you want to read more on Empress Maruja’s blog?
* Ano ang gusto ninyong mabasa sa blog ni Empress Maruja?
* Aneki ang lyka lou blanco mae na mabasa sa kablogahan ni Empress Maruja?

4) What do you want to read less on Empress Maruja’s blog?
* Ano ang hindi ninyo gustong mabasa sa blog ni Empress Maruja?
* Aneki ang wiz lyka lou blanco mae na mabasa sa kablogahan ni Empress Maruja?

5) What would make you comment on Empress Maruja’s blog?
* Ano ang magpapakumento sa inyo sa blog ni Empress Maruja?
* Aneki ang kailangan para mapaspluk kayo sa kablogahan ni Empress Maruja?

Thank you for answering!

Hahahaha! Ako all of the above!!!

Seriously, if you limit yourself sa chever raytaru esplukam, then of course alam na naten what kind of audience your targeting. You have a good great gay fan base naman and you’re always on top of the wordpress chuva so, i’d say it’s really up to you to keep the same language, otherwise, baka naman you might send a wrong signal to alienate them which am sure is not in your agenda.

Of course, given na yung if you wanna wide readership, english ka ever ever just like bryan boy. You’d still be able to keep your gay fan base naman but now, at least pang miss universe global na ang bandwidth mo.

It’s rather difficult to say what ticks amongst readers. You’d know it when you write something or make some drama. Test lang nang test.

I do commend you for what you’re doing. Very strategic, very creative at touchfulness ka ever sa audience mo. Dapat sayo mag Presidenta nang Pilipinas.

Agreeculture aketch kay reynz! Bagay sayetch ang Presidentita ng Pilipinas.

Seriously though, I think what you’re currently doing works well with your audience – the multi-lingualism; the good balance of text, photos, videos, and other media; the reaching out to all corners of the gay world; and the recaps of TV shows. I’m sure marami pang mga nakikibasa lang diyan at wiz na sa pagkacommentitations. πŸ™‚

Mabuhay ka Maruja!

don’t be too conscious. you’ve always been funny. di mo kailangan masyado mag-effort.

tendency ng mga blogs na famous maging snobbish sa pagcocomment sa mga lesser known blogs and it’s understandable but if you want to get more comments, more comment ka rin dapat kahit di mo feel. although you can do what some famous bloggers do, magcomment ng magcomment hanggang makakuha ng enough attention tapos ligwak ulet pag famous na ulet.

in shorts, tama si gibo.

1. I Lyk it na tri-lingual na. Kipititap!
3. I want more of your showbiz chicka.
4. Wala! Basta kung anong ma-isip mo. Go! Kaya ka nga naging si ‘Empress Maruja’ ka dahil dito.
5. Kung feel kong mag-comment at di nagbibisyo ang internet connection.

Yun na!

honestly, i think wala ka namang dapat baguhin. just follow your instinct because you’ve done really well so far.

I think you’ve got it all mixed up already! You don’t need to concentrate on a certain language na. I enjoyed those Kablogahan entries which only queer folds and associates could understand. At least, those not in our range would force themselves to understand our lingo! Deevah?

More power Empress! Nag-iisa ka!

Babush ka!

2. n/a
3. Wala akong maisip na sagot dito. So far, satisfied naman ako sa sinusulat mo.
4. Wala din akong maisaip na sagot dito.
5. ito, napacomment ako tuloy! πŸ˜›

Asus, i don’t find anything wrong with your blog. Just be true to your writing and be yourself. Yun lang. Kanya kanya tayong style sa ating blog. I know you have yours and the mere fact I see it, its the reason why nalalagi ako dito.

No need to change anything. πŸ™‚

agree ako kay pat, wag masyado ma-conscious sa pagba-blog, isa pa witchiemelles naman tayo binabayaran para magsulat, pero wag lang sanang mabalot ng mediocrity for that matter. at tsaka kelangan pa bang i-increase ang readership, eh sandamakmak na ang mga lurkerets.
go lang ng go, kung nag-i-enjoy ka naman sa pag-ba-blog at sa tingin mo ay epektibo ka in e-publishing why worry. may sari-sarili tayung istilo ng pagpapatakbo ng ating mg blogs, kaya kelangan mas pakinggan ang sarili keysa sa sasabihin ng iba.

ay true. kebs sa sasabihin ng iba. wag masyadong mag-attempt i-please ang iba. pero since nagtanong ka na rin, love ko ang mga gay lingo articles mo kasi educational. chos. at maganda ang pagkaka-present with matching titillating stories.
