I love days like today when it comes to blogging – where a lot of hard work, planning and a bit of luck comes together for a satisfying day’s work. The past 24 hours have been quite satisfying on many levels:
- Last night I spoke at a seminar with a number of business people about my blogging. Some great opportunities have emerged for some consulting.
- On getting home from the seminar I found that one of my smaller blogs that averages around 500 visitors per day got a link from Slashdot which in the past 20 hours has brought 50,000 visitors to it.
- I spent a little time this afternoon with a business person and friend who I am pitching an idea to which I’m really excited about. It’s not just a money making idea which is what particularly excites me – it has the potential to have significant impact upon the lives of many in a sustainable business model. I’ll share more on this as it comes to be (or not).
- With the funeral of the Pope tonight that blog is obviously doing some pretty reasonable traffic and has generated quite a bit of interest from around the world.
So all in all its been a big day. Big in traffic, big in earnings (it was my biggest ever with Adsense) big in dreaming and ideas and big in connections with others. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
