Tell Us What You Want!

We at Risky Regencies are always delighted to know which posts you, our blog visitors, find most interesting here — or what you’d like to see here in the future. At the moment, the best we can do is judge based on the number of comments a post receives — so if a post gets a lot of comments, we assume that our visitors found it interesting…and if a post doesn’t, we may not make similar posts in the future.

However, we also know that there are some posts that our visitors may enjoy quite a bit, but that do not elicit comments! But we have a hard time telling the difference between posts you enjoy but don’t see the need to comment on, and posts that don’t really interest you.

So, for example, the fact that Bertie’s last two posts received only three comments each, none of which were from visitors to the blog, might indicate that people aren’t really interested in poor Bertie’s hapless posts. (Or it might not.)

Similarly, the fact that my two “what dirty bits did Kemble cut out of Shakespeare” posts also received no visitor comments might seem to indicate that our blog readers aren’t interested in Regency Shakespeare…. Then again, it might just be that our visitors felt the posts did not lend themselves to comments.

In other words, do you really want me to stop posting Bertie’s clueless questions? And the naughty bits from Shakespeare? Do you want more talk about Jane Austen movie hunks, or about Georgette Heyer novels, or about Horatio Hornblower? Do you want to hear more about the writing process, about how we create our novels, or how the publishing process works? Are you interested in hearing about what we’re working on now? Do you want to discuss your favorite romance heroes, or the romance cliches you hate the most, or what you require in a heroine? Do you want more Regency history info here? Do you want to discuss your favorite Regencies, and get recommendations that may lead to new favorites?

Do let us know!

    I pretty much liked every idea you just suggested. I would say, though that is seems to me that people are more inclined to offer comments when some question is posed, or some task is asked of them. I did enjoy the Shakespeare posts and Berties posts but didn’t feel like I had anything to add…

    I love research and writing posts. JA hunks are ok from time to time *g*, but as an unpub, I really love hearing from historical writers about what works for them. And about the interesting research they turn up in the course of writing their mss 🙂

    Thanks for asking!

    I just have this annoying tendency of being quiet and shy, online and off. So whoever came up with the idea that a person’s different online isn’t always right. LOL

    But I know that I try to peek in at least once daily, sometimes I don’t always make it, so if I can actually get myself to speak up, it’s usually only to the more recent posting. But I always read everything and want to read everything that you guys have to say. 🙂

  4. Keep doing what you’re doing! Bertie’s great. Shakepeare’s great. People just don’t always have the time or motivation to comment.
