Time for a blog changePosted: March 18, 2012
I never liked the old blog look so time will tell if I grow to love this new one – one thing’s for sure, it’s a little cleaner. Feedback welcome.
I was lucky enough to last week meet SEO Expert David Carralon who seemed impressed when I told him I came out top (or thereabouts depending which version of Google you use) when you type in “Hanoi blog”. Had I ever thought of accepting advertising? Well no, not seriously. But I might.
I’ve also recently bought the domain ourman (dot) in. Originally the idea was to get all my blogs together in one place. But having been reminded of the Google juice I’d be leaving behind, perhaps I’ll just put all the other blogs there and carry on as I am with this one.
The only thing I’ve ever secretly hoped for, with this blog, was that one day I might be able to persuade an airline to give me tickets to fly to and from the UK a couple of times a year with the missus. In return I could offer them a decent plug and some ever-present on-site branding. No such luck so far. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking.
But having started this blog in 2004 it represents a sizeable time investment. To date it has led to me getting jobs and winning work. Maybe I can make it work for me just a little more.
