I was going through the Google Analytics logs of all my sites, and I noticed something interesting. My pickle site, LadyAshburnhamPickles.com has more traffic going to it than I thought it did! It’s not going to break any records, but people seem to be going to it. I’ve even had a few people contact me to ask about bottles (whether I sold them, or where the best place to get them might be).
And it got me thinking… maybe it was time to add a blog section to the site.
Just to confuse things… LadyAshburnhamPickles runs on WordPress, but uses static pages, rather than sequential posts (like this site). When I came up with the idea for the site, I envisioned it as a static page, with some information on Lady Ashburnham, and the pickle recipe. I gradually added a couple more static pages, but the intent was to create a strictly niche target micro-site, that would be hands-off. In other words.. it was a test.
I don’t plan on dedicating a ton of time to the new blog (after all… how much can you possibly write about a single type of pickles?) but I thought that adding a community element to the site, where I can periodically throw a post up might be another good way of testing things. Who knows what will happen?
Let’s find out!
