Expanding Blog Audience

ulc

Happy Friday! This week I was contacted by an English language website in Russia seeking permission to republish my Belarus border crossing story. The editors are very pleasant and want to make me a recurring guest contributor. Their website is focused on providing English language information on the Ural region, but the content on the site is quite expansive and interesting. Do I have any readers from this region? Maybe it can be my next travel destination in Russia.

I'm still amazed that people are interested in the impressions and stories of an average American woman. However, I want to take the time to thank each of you again for your readership. A special thanks to yarowind, moonrainbow and dubai100. These users followed me from the very beginning, when I had less than 10 subscribers. And of course to macos for inviting me as a companion on some amazing journeys. Many of you would have never found me if he had not taken the time to translate some of my posts for his very large audience.

I still struggle with how to grow my audience on a mostly Russian speaking platform. Any ideas? Feel free to share. I believe the most intelligent and kind Russians read my blog, and I wish each of you a pleasant weekend!

I can only write in English because I'm not fluent in Russian. Some readers have been kind enough to offer to translate posts, but I know there are many more English speaking Russians here. I just don't know how to find them. :)

It's interesting to know what do you think about Russia and what do you see then you traveling. For me it's more interesting to read american's girl blog about Russia. Useful for me, i'm learning english)
Have a nice weekend too!

Good luck with your English studies. If you have questions, you can always send me a message. And please don't hesitate to comment on my posts for fear of bad English. So many readers say this to me, but I always understand them.

Thanks! Send more English speaking Belarusians here. :) Btw, I remember you wrote that you spend time in Vermont during your U.S. visits. This is one of my favorite States. I have some reports on the blog, just search the Vermont tag and you will find them. Now is the most beautiful time to visit with the autumn foliage.

Easy as much as you wish. Just comment something on Macos journal or somebody else and lot of users would check you as a friend.

Macos' readers have known me for a long time, but I comment on some other English friendly blogs (puerrtto, inamora, alexcheban). This sometimes brings new subscribers.

In what city? To relocate from Russia, or just a vacation house?

Почему бы тебе не поехать в Мексику? Это гораздо ближе. Рассказать про наркокартельТихуана, например. Если останешься в живых. Почему ты к моей стране привязалась?

I've already traveled to Mexico (Tijuana and Ixtapa). You know why I'm drawn to your country, I already explained it. Because Russia is strange, unusual and interesting. Why do you hate America, pindos and the West? You have never traveled here to see it with your own eyes. To understand the way we actually live.

Why are you back in my blog? You missed your favorite American bitch? :))

My wife is from Chelyabinsk which is in Urals.
And she knows someone (a girl) who organize trips to most wild and weird places there.

Such tours for English speakers? I remember now your wife is from there. I'm curious about the region and want to visit, but it's so expensive to travel to and within Russia!!

IMHO, you are not an average American woman(but much higher than average),
because average American woman doesn't have so many Russian followers. :)

Grateful for my Russian readers! They are always teaching me interesting things, making me laugh, and sometimes cause steam to come out of my head. :) Thanks for reading!
