I know you probably don't need me to tell you that the internet is a powerful force in just about every aspect of life these days... If you are reading this you are probably already pretty savvy (and an arbiter of taste I might add...)
Here are a few facts that you bloggers may find interesting:
- 46%. The percentage increase in readership of my blog when I started using Twitter to tell folks about my posts.- Another 40%. When I finally spent the 3 minutes it took to learn how to connect Twitter to Facebook status updates.- $27.00. The amount I saved just yesterday by asking if anyone could loan me a book, Lore of Running. Thanks Keith! That's real community people, and it is great! By the way, Keith runs North Shore Athletics which is THE place to go for all your running/triathlon needs (except the bike... for that go HERE.)- Priceless. The people I have "met", some I've helped, and some who have helped me...
Readership stats may or may not be motivating for you, but given the choice I'd rather engage a larger audience. I don't want to be the crazy guy on the cyber-corner talking to himself!
On that note, (SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION WARNING!) please subscribe for email posts (right column), or "follow" (left column), or plug me into your reader... That way we'll be able to keep in touch hassle-free.
Thanks everyone for reading and in advance to new subscribers!
