Ryans message brought home to me just how important community is.
People make a site such as this work, not technology, and certainly not “page rank”, “traffic” or “search engine rankings”.
There have been numerous cases where I have been so grateful to people who have supported me through the many ups and downs of my blogging career. Some of which happened on this very site 😉
I can’t stress enough how important loyal readers are. If you are going to focus on one thing, serving your audience has to be it.
The real value is in loyalty. Traffic without engagement is meaningless. Forget about SEO tricks, gaming social media, community is where it is at.
That folks, is why I am still here, 2 years and 2 weeks later 🙂
