I'm also attempting to give major stories -- those with historical content -- more "time at the top" by letting them remain the latest post for at least two days. My fear is some of these aren't getting enjoyed because they are so quickly buried by the daily updates of Houdini news. It's incredible that from the day I launched this blog, I've had a backlog of nearly 20 posts at all times. My only challenge has been rolling them out in such a way that they all get read and something important doesn't get lost. I'm always looking for feedback from readers and regular visitors about how much Harry they can handle.
For those who only read the historical posts, know that I send links to these to my standalone Houdini Facebook page (as opposed to the Wild About Harry Facebook page where I send everything and more). Give that page a Like and you shouldn't miss a thing. (I'm told that if you like several individual stories -- show interaction with the page -- Facebook will include the page in your News Feed.)
Also feel free to give me feedback in the Comments below. Even when I'm busy with lessor matters (like earning a living), I'm always thinking about Houdini and how to build a better blog.
