[blog] Liz Called Me An SOB!

A few posts ago I mentioned Successful-Blog, a place where Liz Strauss and regulars hold court on how to (in short) turn your 'blog from something self-indulgent (not that that's necessarily a bad thing, now) into an effective tool for self-promotion and information–adding value to what you do on the 'web.

I found it inspiring enough that it caused me to write my recent two-parter on how to hand-code Blogger links. I'm thinking a little differently about things now, and taking some things a little more seriously than I used to.

Anyway! In doing this, I must have fulfilled Liz's dictum that I take the conversation forward and make it valuable to my own readers (however numerous that you are), as I have been named a SOB and have been duly enshrined...remembering, of course, that that means "Successful (and Outstanding) Blogger".

Liz's blog is an interesting read assembled by someone who's always thinking and whose thinking is fun to watch. She doesn't stay still for long. She has passion for what she does, and that, as I've pointed out elsewhere, is inspiring.

Successful Blog is a valuable resource, if you want your 'blog to do more than just be an online diary. A definite must-read.

Hi Samuel,
What lovely things you say! I do think all over the place and leave myself wondering sometimes just where I'm going. But there's a Liz guarantee that you'll never be left bored for long. :)

Welcome to the family. As I said over there. I hope you'll keep adding your insights to the conversaation.

Thank you right back, Liz. I meant everything I said, wholeheartedly.

I'll be sure to check in from time to time. I find your work quite inspirational.
