New posts here, there, and everywhere...

One of the resolutions I made for myself for this year was to write more. Going forward, I'm going to shoot for 7-10 new posts here a week. Also, I'm going to try to write more at Daily Fix, hopefully getting at least a new post up every week. So far so good, as I've got two new posts at Daily Fix this week.

The first is a post I wrote yesterday that goes more deeply into some of the advantages I am seeing from using Twitter. I go into some of the stats behind my own Twitter usage and how it's affecting traffic here, as well as how the total number of Twitter users is trending.

Today's DF post goes into the findings from a new study by Deloitte on how media and digital content is being used and distributed. Some interesting results, it appears that social content is continuing to grow, and so is video.

Finally, I have a new writing gig to announce. From this point forward, in addition to writing here and at DF, I'll also be writing for Search Engine Guide. And as luck would have it, my first post is up today. Today and tomorrow I am running a 2-part series on how to get more comments on your blog. Today's posts looks at what you can do at your blog to encourage more comments, tomorrow I will look at some ways that you can encourage readers to comment by leaving your blog (sounds counter-intuitive, but it will make sense in the end!).

So please check out each post, and add your own thoughts if you can. One advantage to writing for another site is that I will now be able to draw more attention to some of the smart ways that the rest of you are utilizing social media!

Major congrats on the great writing gig! And I think it's wonderful that you'll be writing more...up to 10 posts a week is amazing--I sure couldn't do that. But hey, I'm not the man that you are ;-).

I'm just glad that you'll be getting the 'right' message out there to new marketers and companies coming into this space--that's what is most important.

PS: Can I say "I knew him when"? Bravo!

Congratulations on the new writing gig, Mack. You can throw ideas on getting more comments my way any time! I seem to complete posts ;-)

And from someone who has been writing 8-9 posts per week between blogs -- I applaud your commitment. May the winds fill your sails and the seas give you a smooth ride. I used to sail a lot, before writing :D
