Today morning, I was listening to the Episode No. 292 of For Immediate Release Podcast and like any other episode this one is equally interesting 🙂 . Lots of interesting stuff is out there, so do check it out.
Caroline Middlebrook has done some analysis of her blog traffic/stats for the month of October and she’s got about 700 visitors just from blog comments.
The key is that its not just spamming the blog, but instead Caroline is contributing to the conversation by sharing her thoughts. So, it isn’t something like “Oh Yeah ! Great Work” or “Keep it Up, Great Work”. Another interesting thing as Darren points out is that Caroline doesn’t put blog link in her comment. Certainly, it is very cool for some one who has just started.
Caroline has also posted a summary of her monthly work schedule. What is it that consumes most of her time and how many hours does she spend on that?
The time spent on Blog-reading and commenting is really astounding. It dominates the entire work. The whole concept of networking with others and understand what others are talking about, educating yourself with other’s thoughts well that’s the core 🙂
I’d highly recommend reading Caroline’s post, not from the numbers perspective but primarily from the qualitative insights that she shares.
