When I really examine this blog's traffic I.e. who are visiting, who are commenting and who are linking, I find that i've had a unique interaction with nearly all of you.
Some of you i've worked with, some i've exchanged a few e-mails, some i've met in person, some I never seem to quiet meet. Then some of you i've commented on your blogs, some i've twittered and some are friends, families and students. I'm sure about half are my parents mind, always refreshing to make me feel good.
It's all these 1's and 2's which add up. That has to be true of most blogs, especially when starting out. The trick is just to interact with as many people as possible, through as many different networks as possible. This is why many blogs fail, they prioritize content over people. Sure there has been some nice search engine traffic over the past few months, but it's the worst sort of traffic. It's the traffic that visits one post, one time, for about one minute, and then leaves...never to return. Clients seem to love this volume traffic.
