The Cloud Blogging Experiment - Blogging matters

I started this blog as an experiment during 2010 and here are some thoughts.

Most posts are about Cloud Services, most Tweets are about Google Apps and most blog articles are about Google. Following tag clouds summarize the posts.


I wrote 5 blog articles during 2010 and about 50 tweets, in other words very few. The blog has about 50-100 page views daily and 60 followers on Twitter. The blog is far away from being popular, yet more people read it Daily than when I give a presentation to a group of 20 people gathering in real life, an event that requires coordination, preparation, marketing etc.

Page View stats for 2010 for blog.wedran.com
Most visitors are from the United States, UK and then other english speaking countries. Firefox and Chrome webbrowsers are both more popular than Internet Explorer. Not suprised considering the blogs target group and article content. About 80% use Windows OS. Most visitors come from Google and then from Getsatisfaction.com (A site where I posted a link to one of my blog posts).

The most popular article is "Sync LinkedIn, Facebook, Outlook, CRM and iPhone Connections to Google Contacts (including the Profile Photo)" and the least popular article is "What is a Cloud Service and why should You care?"



Conclusion

  • If I have something to say and I want to say it to maximum  number of people it is well done using a Blog and Twitter. The blog subject i.e. Cloud solutions seems to work.
  • If I want to attract new business relations and meet people its better done with real life presentations, especially considering most readers are outside Sweden.
  • If I want more readers I would need to write more and shorter posts with popular subjects and solutions. It is also a  good idea to link to the posts from other websites (See Google Backtracking algorithm).
