Octopus Hat
We have the technology!

Thursday, July 03, 2003  

One of my favorite things about the whole blog movement is that every bloggers opinion matters. Sure, there are blogosphere celebrities, and there are celebrities with blogs, but in a lot of ways joeshmoe.blogspot.com's posts are just as important and relevant as Lawrerence Lessig's. There are really 2 ways to measure clout in the blog community: (well, three is you count Blogshares) Linkage and hit-count. And the way to generate links and hits is to produce CONTENT that drives your readers. It is like "Field of Dreams:" If you blog it, they will come. So it is extremely edifying for me when I see that my idol blogged about the "new uses for camera-phones"the day after I did. I also feel better when even a celebrity has questions about the best way to implement content (not to mention the same Blogger difficulties and desire for MovableType that I'm dealing with.) I have seen a pretty dramatic increase in HITS over the past couple of days, and A LOT of it is being generated via Greg's link on our brewing page : www.emptryboxbrewing.blogspot.com. We will see if these hits turn into READERS. So, if your new to the 'Hat and you've come by via Emptybox, let me know what you think.
