SEO, SEM and social media folks repeatedly advise that websites have a blog and blog daily. I find that difficult, and try to blog weekly. But even blogging once a week can be challenging.
When my web traffic is increasing, I get energized and find it easy to blog. My traffic has been pretty flat for a couple weeks, so I’ve been lazy and haven’t blogged. A recent spike in traffic has me blogging away again.
It would be much better for my website if I would blog consistently, but there is a danger: blogging just for the sake of blogging — resulting in a bunch of poorly-written blog posts.
I created webSqURL because I saw an unfulfilled business need. I am hopeful that the site will hit the big time and take off exponentially. However, I know that start ups have perhaps on a 10% chance of succeeding financially. These are daunting odds. I’ve been involved with 8 start-up ventures at various phases of completion and only 2 have resulted in net profits. And only one that has exceeded $10,000 in net profit so far. And the profitable one is not internet-based.
Nonetheless my entrepreneurial spirit drives me on… looking to create that next great business. Hopefully webSqURL will be *that* business.
