A Visible Pathfinder for Increasing Blog Traffic in 2007

"The wise learn from their own experiences but the truly intelligent will learn from someone else's!" - Benjamin Franklin.

My 2007 resolution for return-on-investments in blogging is to have a two-way traffic. The prescription is, please:
1. post a comment--aka, visual signature--in this blog on whatever subject (spam and phishing EXEMPTED)
2. turn on your blog comments' button; I will reciprocate not once, but every post that you create in 2007. This is my own idea of live and let live. I do reciprocate; my 2006 ledger shows Bloggers, such as, Sukhdev Singh, K. G. Schneider, Nancy White, Nirmala Palaniappan, David Tebbutt, Peachy Limpin, Thomas Brevik, Steven Edward Streight, Neil Patel, Diane Levin, and more.


PUNCHLINE: Increasing Blog traffic is a major concern, even for many Gurus [e.g., Adrian W Kingsley-Hughes' Three simple actions that doubled my website traffic in 30 days]

    There are two paths avialable to you. One is to work hard at increasing traffic, and in that way you have at least caught my attention enough to post, and the other is to accept that traffic may be slow but that if you have something interesting enough to say people will find it and use it. I use to blog and get upset that no one seemed to be reading, then I lost heart and stopped, and out of the blue my blog was suddenly being listed in all sorts of places. I still haven't gone back to it, it's really a stand alone subject and finished as such, but it's ok, sometimes someone finds something useful in it.

    In any group of people there will be personality incompatibilities. A lot of the time these can be minimised with a good leader. Problem is that most leader tend more towards ambition rather than people skills. A leader with people skills can ease all the externals such a new technology, but it takes an exceptional leader to handle the personalities in a group.
