Reflections on blogs and blogs

I got the half a million pageviews message and looked into what I wrote in early 2010: "

"I have been writing blogs for about 3 years and it is helping me to get some messages and information out to partners, customers, students, researchers and others who share the networked economy passion.

About a year ago I was invited by finextra to start blogging on their site. As I have a background in banking and especially e- and 3rd generation e-banking I was glad to test out if my input would interest readers in this channel. Usually I publish the same stories in both my original Networked Economy blog and here - but add financial industry aspects in Finextra.

The results have been rather impressive. While 3 years at http://boharald.blogspot.com have produced 15 000 page views - 1 year in Finextra has produced 120 000 (8 months later 250 000)..

What does this say? First of all that the media matters - easy to find > brings in readers and more comments (not much though). Secondly that you can reach the audience without the help of journalists. This "filter" is of course sometimes very useful - but sometimes it is not adding anything but time. Sometimes more "neutral" journalists naturally add credibility to your cause - but then again may take away part of the passion - and are not necessarily much more trusted than the writer. A conclusion may then be that both are needed - and that the demands on both are on the rise.

See the big picture, show the big picture, get going, go deeper, keep going - and all the time communicate so that the market (including your competitors) get it."

Still sense-making I think.. maybe a full million is realistic?

It’s obvious some patients with herpes are being enslaved to the antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the virus and not a cure. I have been with the virus since 2015 until I was introduced by a blogger who also narrated her story online on how she was cured of Genital Herpes after using Dr Sikies Herbal Medicine. This is a year and 2 weeks since I was delivered from genital Herpes. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me. I have promised to keep telling good things about Dr Sikies.
