I would like to thank everyone who has been taking the time to read my posts. This site, despite its no frills approach, averages between 50 and 80 visits a day. I am happy to see that most of my 250+ posts have been read by a number of people from all over the world.

The US, Australia, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Canada and Germany are often at the top of my reader list. The first two months of 2012 are being dominated by Israel and Poland. Yet, I’m happy to report readers from all continents except Antarctica.

The most disappointing aspect of this endeavor continues to be the lack of comments and discussion this site has generated. I’m not sure if this is due to the fact that many of my readers are not primarily English speaking people, or if the topics are too varied and not presented in an antagonizing manner.

I would love for there to be more dialogue amongst the readers.

One of the major reasons I developed this site was to offer my art to the public for free. Over the last year there has been quite a substantial improvement in the number of people listening to my music and reading the lyrics. A few of my books, notably A Twist of Faith and Public Relations are enjoying an increased readership.

I am very proud of my lyrics, and I find it hard to believe you would be able to find many others with as much feeling and introspection as I put into mine. My music is a bit different and varied. As I’ve said before my music is art posing as music. It is lush, intense, and meant to be digested slowly and ruminated over. I expect to post one to two additional CD’s per year for the foreseeable future.

The feedback I’ve received from my books has been very positive, and I would love to hear more people’s responses to my lyrics, music and books.

Over the last four years I’ve covered many topics on this site. We’ve covered gender issues and male sexuality, the stock market, social issues, personal development topics, the nature of human experience, pleasure, and meaning to name a few.

I’m pleased to report that a number of my blogs are rated fairly highly when googled.

Thanks again for reading some of my thoughts.

Again I want to invite you all to visit my book and music sections to browse through my art.

Let me know what topics you want me to expand on, and how I can make this site more interesting to you.

United in Compassion,

Jim Guido

    I know what you mean, buddy. As I once wrote to you, I think you and I have very similar blogs. Most blogs are about something, ours are platforms for our writing style, observations, and inspirations. That’s a tough sell for anyone because, after all, who the fuck are we?

    Currently, I’m going through something of a similar situation. Check out the post What’s this website about and you’ll see that we seem to have had the same concern/post at the same time, namely, we see that some of you like us, so tell us what you like and we’ll do more of it.

    Basically it comes down to marketing. I think we’re both going to have to start figuring out how to get more readers. Links are huge. Therefore, let me offer you a link from the very post I just mentioned to your site, referencing our similar circumstances.

    Good luck, eh.
