Encouraging New Bloggers

By Brian | March 5, 2009 | Share on Facebook

Yesterday, I received a pageview from a new domain, StuffImThinking.com. Intrigued, I clicked through and found a brand new WordPress blog with one entry and one item in the blogroll (yours truly).

The ALT text for the link says, “Brian Greenberg’s blog (I don’t know him, but I do read his blog!)”

Well, Mr./M s. StuffImThinking – I don’t know you either, but I’m glad you take the time to stop by around here. Good luck with the new blog – I’ll return the favor and check in once & a while myself. We micro-bloggers need to support each other, after all…

    FYI — “microblogging” means very short posts, i.e. the 140 character messages you write to Twitter. (Which you really should join.)

    For bloggers who don’t have a large readership, which I think you were going for, the technical term for that is “bloggers”.

    I’m fairly sure these days that your insidious scheme of posting more regularly and more thoughtfully than I do has worked, and you’re generally surpassing me in readership.

    Interesting. I’ve been using “microblog” in the literal sense (tiny blog – i.e., blog with tiny audience) for years now. I think Twitter, et. al. have co-opted the term for their own…

    As for me joining Twitter: it would be a waste of time – I’m not allowed to use it at work, and at home I’m only at my computer a few hours a night. Twitter strikes me as most valuable for someone who always has a laptop in front of their eyes…

    Not at all. It’s useful when you’re online, and it goes away when you’re not. Sometimes I leave it off most of the day myself; it’s not exactly supportive of the ADD workstyle.
