Sean at CrapHammer is one of those bloggers that, for whatever reason, doesn't seem to get the attention he deserves. Case in point, check out how he's using Legos to make a visual post about brand-building. Love how positioning ties into the 'head' of the Lego man. Perfect.
My first thought wasn't that I want to comment on this post, but rather that I wanted to create a new post here, and link Sean's post. Because I was more interested in making sure my readers here discover Sean's post, than I was leaving a comment at Sean's blog.
And that ties into a post that Lewis left today at Daily Fix. Lewis is asking about the best ways to boost readership at our blogs, and specifically addressing how to increase comments. But as I mentioned to Lewis, we shouldn't assume that a post with no or few comments, isn't being noticed. With the abundance of bookmarking sites, and of course via linking, readers can still share their interest in our posts, without commenting.
Which of course leads to another interesting debate; which do we prefer, readers that comment, or readers that link-to and bookmark our posts?
UPDATE: Just got an email from Danny, seems that Sean has joined Beyond Madison Avenue!
