Maybe you are new to Kemme Fitness, or maybe you are a junkie/core follower (pun intended). In either case, I would love to hear your thoughts on what I should do with this website.
I am doing some reflection, perhaps it is the 3 year itch. I think it is important for us to use the Kemme Fitness concept of sharing back and forth with each other. This is one of those times where I am hoping you will share your thoughts with me.First, let me explain what is all on this website in case you are new, or haven’t explored it very well. FREE RESOURCES: -400+ exercises with video link demonstrations -200+ complete Functional Fitness workouts to choose from either at home or at the gym -5 unique twelve week programs to download -ebook Functional Fitness Defined -free Kemme Fitness User Guide -ebook The Low Cost Gym -just shy of 600 total posts, including the workouts and also tips, thoughts, advice, and recommendations on Functional Fitness -links to various Functional Fitness resources FEE BASED RESOURCES: -K-Fit app for the Blackberry Secondly, I will explain why I’m contemplating the future of this site. Running a blog with new material every day or two is a great deal of work. Just look at your favorite barefoot running and Functional Fitness blogs from 2 or 3 years ago and I bet many are gone already. It simply takes a lot of time to research, develop, and share new and relevant material at a steady pace. None of this site has generated income for my family, but hasn’t really costs anything either so my family tolerates my “hobby.” We get the excitement of sharing and helping others and also for the possibility of something taking off. The app is still a possibility when it comes out on Android and ios, but I’m not holding my breath that I can quit my day job. Up until this point, I’ve had two goals with Kemme Fitness. The main goal has been to share/help others and to learn. The secondary goal has been to grow the number of followers of the blog. The thought behind that was that as the popularity of Kemme Fitness grew, the more likely some sort of opportunity would arise. However, I have been at a plateau for most of 2013 and can’t seem to break the 5000-6000 hits a month mark. I couldn’t stomach the idea of removing the site from the internet for a couple reasons. One reason is that I invested too much time to let it dissappear. Also, I personally hope (and believe) there is value here people could use and I love sharing with others. So Kemme Fitness would stay online in some shape or another for sure. An option could be to turn the home page into a static page instead of a blog. I could have the blog as a separate page. In that case, I can reduce the amount of posts dramatically and save time. I could always continue to add new workouts and put up the posts if I had something I really wanted to say. The problem with stopping the blog is I can pretty much count on the traffic to the site dropping off. I believe folks come here over and over for the consistently new material. It would be sort of “giving up” in ways to end the blog. Another negative consequence is the K-Fit app has a streaming update of posts, which would make no sense if I hardly ever added new content. I feel Kemme Fitness is incredibly resource/content rich already. My concern is I am not sure if I can keep the pace up. Maybe if I saw a rise in popularity, that would inspire me more, but as it stands, I’m feeling a little burned out to be honest. Thoughts? Seriously, I could use some thoughts on this. This is becoming more and more of a struggle for me and I need some help.
