I’ve been watching this guy evolve over the course of a year in his campaign to blog every day. The growth that he showed in his traffic statistics was eye-opening.
Just recently I spent a weekend at a conference called Pressnomics. Pressnomics is a conference that is unlike a WordCamp in that it doesn’t focus on building things with WordPress, but building and running a business around WordPress. One of the speakers at Pressnomics had a strategy for building your online presence. At first he said there were something like 141 things you should do to do better than the next guy in order to beat them in search rankings. If that seems too tough, he offered a second solution – 10 things you can do to beat out the next guy. Finally, if that’s still too much work to he boiled it down to one thing – hit the publish button. Do it more frequently, with better content, for a longer period of time and you’ll win.
I can’t promise I’ll have the discipline that Chris Lema does, but I’m going to do my best to drive traffic to this site in one way or another. I’m not sure what I’ll be writing about, but it will probably range from WordPress code to business strategies, parental anecdotes to photo galleries, and from time to time maybe even some good old fashioned high school type writing prompts.
Hang on, we’re in for a wild ride.
