We’re all interested in what others say about us. Especially when it’s about our work. Now if, like me, you act as your own PR team, discovering these snippets and citations rests solely on your shoulders. And in today’s business environment, it’s not just vanity. It’s a necessity.
Cue the ego search.
It’s gratifying when I publish a blog post and you leave comments. What I talk about doesn’t always call for a response, but when it does, and you reply, it’s very encouraging. But is an interest in discussion the only reason you leave your thoughts?
The ulterior motive is gathering pace.

It’s no secret that you, the people who read my blog, are full of excellent ideas. The comments you leave add great value to my articles, and I’ve been told so on many occasions.
Therefore, I’m going to start highlighting comments along the way. Those that deserve extra attention. Here’s the first batch (more to follow soon).
People deal with people, which is why publishing a blog can do wonders for your business. Showing how you operate, and expressing your thoughts through a blog connects us in a way that static websites (those with no interactivity) simply can’t. Allowing people to comment on your articles invites conversation, and can give a great insight into the personality of the author, their temperament, and how they communicate.
This is a web usability question that concerns you, the people who read my blog, and also those who author their own blogs / websites. It seems that some people actually get angry when a website takes control of their browser by opening a new tab, and of course that’s not what I want here.
