Google Blog Search Pushed To Search Results Page

September 1, 2010

Google has made discovering subject matter blogs easier by pushing their Blogs search results tab to the left rail of search results pages.

Clicking Blogs produces a list of blogs relevant to the keywords searched.

It appears my Search Marketing Communications blog has somehow been hardwired into the first slot in the above the fold Google search results for “Related blogs about marketing communications”.

At Least My 729th Post

August 31, 2010

Since September 1, 2009, I have posted to this blog each and every single day except one – a day when I thought clicked “Publish” but didn’t.

I have however posted a blog post to my other blog Search Marketing Communications each and every day now since September 1, 2008 – 730 days in a row.

Within the last year and between the two blogs combined I have created over 729 blog posts in the last 365 days.

The posts weren’t all necessarily pretty or comprehensive but for the most part they each were on topic.

The concept of blogging each and every day for a year looks easy on paper but its not and it wasn’t.

During this same time period I also surpassed 10,000 Tweets.

The process of posting daily and tweeting even more regularly has yielded a level of focus and awareness that had previously eluded me.
