This week my blog got its 10,000th visit.
Which is quite a lot when I think about it and I must admit this is a pleasant surprise.
Especially since you consider the content of my blog requires a bit of reading and thinking, is not just a collection of cool stuff, and is not, I’m the first to admit, very well written!
When I started this blog 6 months ago, it was just a little experiment for myself.
I wanted to see what would happen if I started writing a blog without promoting it whatsoever.
Would the things I write about interest anyone and get picked up on?
It kind of did, specially since Scamp put me on the map, after reading my post on viral in the knitwareblog.
Since then I’ve enjoyed a steady traffic.
In isolation, some stats are flattering. I’ve been delicioused 21 times, got a technorati authority of 27 and people have taken on their personal time to write about 200 comments responding to my posts. Which seems quite good.
Although I started this blog on a purely selfish act, I just wanted to force myself into writing down my thoughts, it is only the interest you’ve shown in the blog that kept me going at it.
I’ve probably upset a lot of people, inspired a few, and bored many!
It is proving challenging to keep on updating my blog with the kind of quality post I want, as it is quite time consuming.
Posts to come will talk about: the death of the consumer insight, collaboration is over-hyped, why your ad agency should refuse to feature in an episode of the Apprentice, we all are creative, we shouldn’t have departments in agency but specialists, how to get to better ideas #3 learnings from Marcel Duchamps, how to get perfect abs in 5 minutes, speak spanish fluently with Michel Thomas and many more ramblings…
Thanks to you all, the fonz is happy.
