and an update on blog development

I have updated my blog to add more than 30 links to other blogs and writing sites. I first thought of browsing the vast blogosphere for like-minded word artists, but then thought of using, the professional networking site I joined recently. It was a great idea. LinkedIn has helped me find former classmates and past and present colleagues. It has also helped me connect to other bloggers and writers. If you have not yet considered LinkedIn as a tool to develop your professional connects, I strongly encourage membership.

I have enhanced my blog to include a site meter, a poll, and the option for readers to subscribe to, follow, or/and share the blog. I also moved some features around. My aim is to make the blog as interactive as possible. As I learn more about the blog world I hope to continue improving the look and feel of the site.

My last personal story was “The Cub Scouts.” I plan on posting more similar stories, but will also post general thoughts, including my personal perspective on politics, current events, and popular culture. I plan to also eventually write brief reviews on some of my “Favorite Blogs/Writing Sites.” Take a moment to look through some of the sites. You may find some of great interest.

If you can’t tell, I’m having a great deal of fun and look forward to building my blog and getting feedback. Your comments are very much welcomed.

    Hey Phil
    Great to see you’re sharing your writing skills with the world.

    I’m personally not convinced that linkedin is much better than a resume update service that keeps you updated on career changes happening in your network. Do let us know how it works out in terms of getting traffic to your blog.

    There are plenty of options for driving traffic to your blog. and google friendconnect are popular or gaining popularity right now.

    I’m going to have to add your blog to my blogroll. Thanks for the linkage.
