Just to show you what a blog can do for your web stats, here are mine from December, before I started the blog, and April, after the blog had been in full swing for four months (but before the Chronicle article came out.) Though my modest multiplying of hits doesn’t compare with the 80,000 hits per month on the GreenCine film blog, it’s still clear that a blog is a good thing for an independent professional to have.
If you open today’s San Francisco Chronicle to the business section, you’ll find Ilana DeBare’s article “The Business of Blogging”—and one of the blogs she talks about is this one. Welcome, all you Chronicle readers! Feel free to post comments and make suggestions. Also, I’m planning to start a new blog, FileSlinger™ Favorites, with links to useful sites and products for consultants, coaches, and other independent professionals and small businesses.
