2020 Sigma Frame Performance Report

Σ Frame’s fourth annual traffic performance report.

Readership: Anyone interested
Length: 2,300 words
Reading Time: 8 minutes

History

I started blogging on March 7, 2008, using Blogger as my blog platform.  On September 27, 2017, I transferred the best of my blog writings from Blogger to WordPress, and began concentrating on Red Pill topics.  I received more views on WordPress in the first two months, than I had on Blogger in the previous 8 years.

Goals and Purposes

My goals and purposes in blogging are summed up in my About page. I value easily readable, and high content quality posts that stand the test of time – writings that would be of value to readers even decades from now.

Methods

I have a frequent habit to pray about the purpose of this blog, what I should write about, and what men need to read and know.  Years ago, I used to write in themes, using topics and citations from other articles.  In 2019, I started introducing more epiphanies from my private journal and my life experiences.  During 2020, there were a lot more comments and other feedback through private email correspondence, so I started writing about topics brought up by readers.

Concerning the appearance of the blog, at the beginning of 2020, I experimented with the header image and the background color. Details are covered in the following posts.

Under the 2019 Performance Report that was posted at the beginning of 2020, Adam Piggott gave me this advice for posting.

“Post more often, you will get more traffic. If people know that they can get something from you every day, then they come back a lot more often. I’ve also found that the magic number of words for a post is about 700. That’s what people can handle in this day and age.”

I decided to experiment with writing shorter, more frequent posts, and I made a goal of posting three times a week at the same time. Within a few weeks, I settled into posting on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

I also invited several other noteworthy bloggers to join the author’s panel. In addition to Lexet, who joined in 2019, Scott and NovaSeeker joined in 2020.  In 2020, Scott wrote 9 posts, Lexet wrote 8, and NovaSeeker wrote 7. TheDeti and Elspeth also wrote the main content for one post each.

In November, I started posting every day.  My motive was to help distract people from the election drama and provide a diverging relief.  As a consequence of my greater devotion to the cause of this blog, several things happened.

  • As a result of the change from posting three times a week, to posting every day, the traffic went up 28.5%.
  • NovaSeeker started writing posts.
  • Scott Klajic came back and wrote a post.
  • A reader asked me to make a “Donate” page so that he could contribute.

Here, I would like to acknowledge the authors who contributed during this time: NovaSeeker (7 posts), Scott (3 posts), Lexet (1 post), and the two posts based on comments from TheDeti and Elspeth. I couldn’t have maintained the schedule of posting every day without their valuable contributions.

Overall, I interpreted these events as the hand of God helping me to fulfill my commitment to post daily for 50 days.  I don’t say this to displace recognition from the contributions of others, but rather to emphasize that God came through for my readers, and that it’s not all about my own effort.

As the following statistics will show, all these changes proved to increase readership dramatically.  Σ Frame had an average of 188 views per day for 2019.  This figure increased to 442 for 2020.

Writing Projects:

I had at least four writing projects in 2020:

  1. Game
  2. How Christian Red Pill is distinct from secular Red Pill
  3. Moon Day Review
  4. The Purity Movement, which morphed into a series entitled, “Patheological Weddingsday”.

I also continued three writing projects from the previous year (2019), but with less intensity.

These writing projects did not develop as much as I expected. Instead, several themes emerged which diverted my attention and effort. I interpret this as a providential development.

Themes

Looking over my posts from 2020, there were several themes that emerged.

New Pages

Over the past year, I’ve added the following new pages to the header, and rearranged the pages into drop down links on the header.

  • Site – A description of the writing process, a brief history of the blog, and what I’ve learned from experimenting with theme color.
  • Men – A very brief discourse on why this blog is important to men.
  • Argumentation and Debate – Something I hope readers will be more aware of in their comments.

Noteworthy Posts and Exchanges:

In February, Scott introduced us to the Meet Cute phenomenon in two posts, and I summed it up in a couple more.

In two posts, Placing the Marriage Structures within the Archetypical Models (2020 September 28), and More on Relational Archetypes (2020 November 28), I combined my model of Authority vs. Life Path with Deep Strengths descriptions of relational archetypes, and the resulting synergy gained a lot of resonance around the sphere.  Deep Strength responded in at least three posts.

Later in the year, there were three posts that attracted a relatively larger number of comments.

Traffic Statistics

Finally, here are the 2020 stats for Σ Frame.

NovaSeeker: 7 posts, 1,342 views (191.71 views per post)

The most views in one day:

Scott’s post, How I discovered that I wanted to be married (2020 April 27), pushed Σ Frame over 1,000 views in one day for the first time ever.  On Tuesday, April 28, 2020, the stats counter showed 1,155 views from 602 visitors.  The traffic came from several sources (in order of the quantity of referrals).

The second best day of 2020 was on Saturday, December 18, which brought 808 views from 241 visitors. The traffic was a result of several combinatory factors.

  • TheDeti’s post, The Feminist Life Script (2020 December 17), attracted a large number of comments in the discussion.
  • An older post, List of Slüt Tells (2017 October 15), received 30 referrals from Faceb00k.
  • A post from a few days earlier, Redemption and Sexual Healing (2020 December 15) continued to receive views and comments.
  • 17 referrals from Christianity and Masculinity added to the count.

    Well congratulations, Jack!
    This is comment 1 for me this year, if you are keeping track. LOL
    I’m glad to see things picking up for you. Things picked up for me some as well, even though, due to my circumstances, my posting was decreased. Hopefully this means the manosphere’s demise isn’t as it was predicted.
    Have you noticed Google deprioritizing your site in its search results, like I and some other manosphere sites have recently noticed?

    I think your illustrated posts are an efficient way to transfer knowledge. However it seems that much of the market is moving to a video format. Manosphere video producers seem to be raking in huge amounts of traffic and comments at video hosting sites like YouTube, and others. It seems that the younger generation, that needs to hear this stuff, while they’re young, is not into reading. Although I wish they’d just go back to reading, it seems the future might be in giving them what they want in the format they prefer. So I’m contemplating starting to do videos.

    Dicktor Van Doomcock does all of his videos with a helmet on, and a voice changing effect, to preserve his anonymity.
    https://www.youtube.com/c/OverlordDVD/featured
    I think his videos on entertainment pop culture are pretty cool, and so apparently do the hundreds of thousands of other people who watch his videos as well. I think he does well at fighting the “wokeness” that is destroying our culture. And we would be foolish not to notice how preachy entertainment has always been. Entertainment teaches our society beliefs. Doomcock’s influence has clearly penetrated the entertainment industry, along with the influence of other video critics as well.
    What would you think about trying something like that?

      Sharkly,
      I watched DVD’s introductory video. It’s hilarious! Thank you for sharing that channel!
      Others have suggested that I adopt a video format. I see its potential in reaching a younger audience. But I have not had the inclination to go that route. I imagine that I would have to invent an image something like DVD to be successful at it. I might try it at some point in the future though.

    There probably is something to the idea that much of the world is moving to YouTube. I think that reading is better than listening, if only for the ability to self-pace. And then there is the redundancy issue. Lots of YouTubes, even ones that might be viewed positively around these parts such as the Better Bachelor, have huge redundancy. Within the same program, the same stuff is repeated again and again. Why? Because people don’t get it the first time? Because people like the instant gratification of the repeated punchlines? Because one needs to fill up a half hour?

    Anyway, it is a good question as to how to drive traffic to blogs that might be very useful to people looking to understand a world that does not make sense. One where the explanations take a bit of time to explain and are not best served as a set of sound bites.

    Perhaps.as suggested, a YouTube channel could work. One that would entice a listener, provide basic knowledge, but leave one thirsty for more.

    Just a thought.

      “Lots of YouTubes, even ones that might be viewed positively around these parts such as the Better Bachelor, have huge redundancy.”

      What I’ve noticed is that I start liking a YouTuber’s content, then after awhile, whatever it was about the content and presentation style that drew me initially, begins to fade a bit. Better Bachelor when I first started listening to him, really good; lately, not sure what it is, the content quality is beginning to lose some punch with me. In his case, he seems to have gotten some criticism as of late and his tone has taken on a bit of defensiveness about it.

      Not sure exactly what it is that starts to change with these guys–redundancy setting in, as you mentioned, may be a possibility. It might be just related to having to keep coming up with something fresh or new. After awhile, it can seem like an endless ‘circling the drain’ about all things bad about female nature and today’s women in particular. Some of them also seem to be increasingly managing the ‘business end’ of their podcasting–educational programs complete with multivolume workbooks, etc. Some of them, I won’t mention names, seem to me to be running an infotainment business, with the emphasis on the business part of it, not on the infotainment part as much. One reason I like the blogs so much, particularly the CRP blogs. Seems to be more emphasis on sharing information and educating one another than on entertaining and making a buck or two off of it.

      I think that quite often, on quickly produced videos, there is way more talking than there needs to be, and a lot of it is repetitious or formulaic. (e.g. extended channel introductions and lengthy signoffs and invitations to subscribe to their channel.) Often the presenter seems to just ramble like they only have an outline, and not a written script. If more time was spent scripting the dialogue then the information transfer would be far more efficient. I think a lot of the pressure to just throw together more hastily produced videos, is financial pressure. If the focus was on only putting out excellent content, regardless of the financial return, or their frequency of releasing more material, then the material that was produced without time pressure would be more effective.

      If a person is under pressure to come up with a new message every few days, and they don’t actually have a new epiphany every few days, then often they just wind up giving social commentary on passing events. And due to the transitory nature of current events, and the fact that somebody else may voice your same ideas first, if you spend much time working with your material before you release it, then there is a tendency to rush stuff “to market” which ends up decreasing the long term value of your critique of current events.

      I often face the same dilemma. Do I wait until I feel led to post something, or do I post something just to have some fresh content up? Even though I have zero financial pressure to post, I wonder if I will lose my audience by remaining incommunicado. Every few days I have some thought, that I could possibly post. But do I post some recent conclusion or idea that dawned on me, in a brief blurb, or do I collect them for a post full of random thoughts, or do I just mentally keep hashing such thoughts out until I can weave them into a bigger narrative? WWJD?

        Agree. The actual information that contains transferrable knowledge is typically only about 30% of the content. It’s usually dispersed throughout the entire talk, so you’ve got to listen to the whole thing just to pick up on that 30%. It’s also very difficult to quote and reference in this format. This is why I don’t spend much time on YouTube or podcasts, unless I’m trying to fall asleep.

        I am not that interested in producing this type of media because a really informative and entertaining podcast or video (which is NOT like what I described above) takes even more time and preparation than writing up an essay.

      The trouble with it, though, is that in pretty much every case I have seen where a blogger goes to YT (or similar) format, the YT content displaces the blog, eventually.

      I think it’s because the person realizes that they reach a much bigger audience with YT than they do blogging, as long as they get the right links from others and so forth to drive people to the YT videos. The market for YT videos is multiples larger than the market for blog essays, sadly. Blog essays are now a niche market, at least when compared to YT and, to a lesser extent, podcasts (podcasts are in the middle … less popular than YT but more than essay format).

      Trouble is — podcasts are generally conversations and therefore are not capable of presenting the same kind of sustained argument or analysis that an essay can. Videos can do that, but seldom actually do, because it comes off as stiff (not as popular for people who like to watch YT videos), requires the same amount of preparation and writing for the producer of the content (so doesn’t save time, like most YT videos do from the production point of view when compared to writing a proper essay), and are aimed at an audience that has fundamentally different tastes than the audience that likes essay format writing.

      So generally, someone who does down this path (from blog essays to YT videos) ends up becoming a YouTuber and the blog dies. It makes sense from the perspective of reaching an audience — the audience is, again, multiples of this one in size. However, the medium has significant limitations in terms of what people want you to do there (if you really want the larger audience, which is presumably why you are there to begin with), and therefore it tends to drive the kind of content people produce after a while as well. The most salient case of this is The Rational Male himself, Rollo Tomassi, but there are many others.

      I prefer essays because unlike most people I find it much, much faster to read an essay than to listen to someone speak. I can just assimilate the information much more efficiently in text than in voice format. And I also do not relate to the “doing two things at once” approach — I find when I do that, my mind wanders away from what is being spoken, and I miss a good amount of it, which results in either me needing to back up and listen to a part again, since I had wandered off mentally during it, and lost the train of discussion (which adds to the already longer time consumption of voice over text for me), or I find that I lose interest and simply close out the video/podcast before it finishes. I also loathe that I can’t very easily go back and forth between different parts of the discussion easily, referencing the argument or the analysis, or re-reading pieces of it to make sure I am understanding it properly — no, that is extremely tedious in video or podcast format to say the least.

      That makes me an outlier in 2020 for certain. I realize that most people seem to have an easier time assimilating information by voice than by text — hence its much higher popularity as a media format. But I do think that if you decide to go that route, you have to go in with eyes open realizing that “the medium is the message” much more than you think, and that your choice of medium does, to a significant degree, influence the messages you decide to send, or rather the kinds of things you discuss and how you discuss them, both by virtue of the very nature of the medium in question and because of the body of expectations that have grown up around the medium by its user/consumer group.

        “Trouble is — podcasts are generally conversations and therefore are not capable of presenting the same kind of sustained argument or analysis that an essay can.”

        True. I find the podcasts are helpful for me getting my ‘daily dose of red pills’ as I’ve heard one Manospherian put it. The podcasts help re-set me for the day, similar to how my Quiet Time does it for me spiritually. I’ve heard it said before by a Christian writer that he, “Wakes up a practical agnostic, then has his QT, and is re-centered on Christ and his faith.” I know it’s a weak analogy, but I like it all the same, i.e. I ‘wake up’ with the Blue Pill mindset creeping subtly back in so to speak, then re-invigorate myself with Red Pills by consuming a few YouTubes.

        But here’s where the essays, like on this blog, are really helpful to me. If I just consume infotainment laden red pills, I start to get cynical, maybe a bit nihilistic about where we’re at and where were heading as a society. Too much listening to secular RP YT content and I can begin to feel a bit of black pill creeping in to my thinking; like in the mindset, “We’re too far gone as a society…it’s a hopeless mess out there…too many forces arrayed against us… might as well ‘enjoy’ the decline” as one RP YT Content creator always admonishes us to do. The Blogs like this one, Dalrock and a few others, help me to not only move from a secular RP framework to a CRP framework, but also begins to formulate my thinking about the ‘relations between the sexes’ around a more Biblical framework. This begins to build some hope in me that despite how awful things have gotten between the sexes, there’s still hope it can start to turn, at least a little bit here and there, toward something more workable than what we have now, which is approaching a total shit show.

    I do like podcasts, especially for interviews and long monologues, simply because you can listen to it while working on other things. Does anyone have any recommendations for a podcast site that would not pose a risk of being censored or deplatformed? Soundcloud maybe?

      Podcasts are for car rides and folding laundry. Anything else, and my mind inevitably wanders off.

      I find myself significantly more engaged with the written word. However, I recognize my minority status in that regard, and since audiences in general prefer videos, it makes sense to follow the eyeballs.

    One idea is to make both YouTube and podcasts from the same audio. For the YouTubes, do what Better Bachelor does and place some “easy on the eyes” ladies in the background and rotate them periodically

    People really shouldn’t multi-task. Their total sum productivity is less than doing tasks separately. This is especially true when one of the tasks requires intellectual effort. But people will do it anyway. Because they are special

    But here’s where the essays, like on this blog, are really helpful to me. If I just consume infotainment laden red pills, I start to get cynical, maybe a bit nihilistic about where we’re at and where were heading as a society

    Well, yes. Personally, I try to flesh out aspects of the entire system, bit by bit. It is best to understand what we are up against. It is not infotainment, where there are lots of “rah-rah” for our side moments. Of course, these rah-rah moments, spoken with emotion, are what is a main attraction for the many video/audio consumers.

    If you start producing for this market, it is very easy to fall into this way of operating, as it will probably increase viewership. And with lots of rah-rah YouTube comments.

    If one perhaps just reads previous blog content onto a YouTube as is, it might not get as big of an audience as others, but it still might reach a niche audience. Ideally, this niche audience is the one that you want to reach

      “It is best to understand what we are up against.”

      Yes! This is at the heart of what I’m working on, understanding what we are up against. This thing we are ‘up against’ is much bigger than the so-called Gender Wars. It is an all out assault against Truth with a capital T, and truth with a small t. In other words, it’s a spiritual battle we’re engaged in: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Eph 6:12

    Speaking of YouTube, one of the dumbest things to come from it are “reaction videos”, where the camera shows a person reacting to something happening on-screen.

    First, the fact that they are being recorded changes the reaction.

    Second, who wants to watch a fake reaction?

      It’s like reality TV, I think — same basic impulse and interest.
