Go Read and Subscribe to Samuel John Klein’s blog

I don’t do link exchanges, or trade links, and frankly, this blog isn’t “big and powerful” enough to really broker those kinds of deals. But fellow Portlander Samuel John Klein posted an honest and heartfelt comment to my last post, about having a personality as a blogger. Samuel lamented that he was doing all that – putting a lot of effort into his blog, and himself as a blogger, but still wasn’t getting much traffic.

I want to say two things.

First, even though it’s easy to get caught up in thinking this way (I’ve been there), remember – you are not your blog stats. Traffic is not that important in the grand scheme of things. Besides, the REALLY important metric is how many people subscribe to your feed. ๐Ÿ˜‰ That being said…

Go check out Samuel’s ZehnKatzen Times blog. It’s interesting, well written, and, well, good. He writes about Portland and graphic design. I’m subscribed. Maybe I should talk to him about that TinyScreenfuls logo I’ve been wanting. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Samuel, I hope this brings a few more people your way. Don’t give up – keep blogging, even if no one is reading! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for your kind, good-natured, and well-taken words, and most of all, thanks for putting me up front on your own blog. I’ll perforce return the favor…

    I’ll take your words about stats to heart there. You’re right, of course, that you are not your stats, and that sort of logic battles every day with a need that I have, and I think a lot of people do, to be some level of popular.

    And, hey, if you want a logo designe…we can deal…B-)
