Thanks to Ray for letting me know that my BlogPulse Profile Rank has gone under the magical 100 mark – we’re 71st as this moment.
As you can see the past month has been particularly good in terms of inbound links with a number of larger sites linking up as well as a lot of links as a result of the 31 Days project. Thanks to the many readers whose continued readership has led to this mini milestone – I appreciate you stopping by and linking up.
I’m under no allusions that any success that ProBlogger.net has is because of my work alone – the past 15 days of blogging in the 31 day project has proved that with over 50 submissions from readers (and more quality links submitted today which I’m yet to update) as well as many quality comments being left.
I’ve had a couple of people tell me in the past week that I’m not doing a wise thing in linking to so many other blogs during this project – they said I should be hosting the posts at ProBlogger and reaping the benefits of lots of new content – I disagree. The point of ProBlogger has never been to build an empire here – rather it’s always been about seeing what happens when you freely give as much as you can to a community of people.
The past few weeks have shown me the benefits of such an approach with a lot of feedback from bloggers who’ve submitted posts to the project reporting that their daily traffic levels have increased 10, 20 and even 40 fold as people have come across to have a look at their posts. This excites me and is what blogging is all about.
The paradoxical thing about all this is that the more I send people away from ProBlogger the more the blog here grows – I guess it all comes back to how blogging in formation really does help everyone fly further.
