When I first wrote my original “Why I Hate Blogs” for article submission I was pretty sure that the humor would get some hits but in my wildest dreams I never thought that out of the 26 articles I did write that it would be second in the amount of the hits it did get. Actually it was dark humor because I honestly do hate spending the time blogging away or let us be more specific – I honestly DID hate spending that time.
Another difference between websites and blogs is the ability to communicate with the visitor. Blogs by definition provide space for comments and back and forth communications on the posts or web pages. Websites, on the other hand; traditionally don’t have this. Some websites now have the flexibility to provide places for comments so this is not such a major difference between the two platforms any more.
At any rate, I decided to check them out. The fact that a number of blog publishers allow you to build and post your comments for free, certainly didn’t hurt either.
To be sure there are quite a few professional profile that are frequented daily either due to the persona who owns them or due to their popularity in a specific niche. For instance, writers frequent blogs that are kept up by agents. Some of these blogs are humorous, some serious.
This morning out of curiosity I called up these statistics, fully expecting to see hits in the low teens. People who just happened by my blog by mistake. I certainly did not expect to see a number in the hundreds coming close to a thousand hits in the period from November 2005 until the end of Jan. 2006.
If you have a website, blog about some aspect of it and provide a link. Your weblog can effectively sell the product, and all the customer has to do is click to your site and order it.
As much as I hate to admit it blogging is sometimes important for your business and your web presence. It can be useless or it can add an extra added push to your web business. That is entirely up to you and how often you choose to blog and what you decide to put in a blog.
Finally, it makes no sense to keep wasting time doing in hours what can be done in minutes. There are great software that smart alects design daily to help us out and make life easier. Take advantage of them and start seeing better results in your blogging experience.
