August 20th came and went without much fanfare. In fact, if you didn’t know it, you wouldn’t even have expected that my Talk to the Human blog has been up and running for a full year now. I found a stat on the Internet, which I chose to believe, that says:
The Perseus report noted [in the link] indicates that 66.0% of surveyed blogs had not been updated in two months, “representing 2.72 million blogs that have been either permanently or temporarily abandoned”.
In fact, 1.09 million blogs were one-day wonders, with no postings on subsequent days.
I’m glad those weren’t me. In fact, in my own empirical research, I have found a number of blogs on speaking that had been abandoned within 3-6 months of their initiating.
In this last year, I’ve posted over 200 blog entries. With the launch of a new site, SpeakerBlogger.com, I may have trouble keeping up that pace, but I’ll keep working on it.
One year down, many more to go!
P.S. I am working on getting my blog listed on Technorati, so I need to add this code for verification: PX2M62AWUZ22
