    Answer quickly, 60 seconds on the clock, your time starts … NOW!

    1. Do you read Business Blogs?
    2. If yes, how often?
    3. Which ones do you read?
    4. Why?
    5. What does the blog have to have for you to read it?
    6. Do you recommend Business Blogs to others?
    7. Do you subscribe to any Business Blogs?
    8. What would you like from a Business Blog that you’re not getting now?
    9. Final question (oh boy this is gonna hurt): Does anyone read or subscribe to my blog?

    The stats on my blog show around 76 page views per day. It’s been going for exactly one year and I have written 143 posts as of today. (I haven’t yet worked out how to put Google Analytics on my Typepad blog.)
    But I have no idea what, why or how it is being used as a resource by people. So these questions are designed to help me set the content over the next little while.

    Thank you.
    Rgds,
    Ric

    Do I read business blogs? About as much as I write to them – lots!

    1. Do you read Business Blogs? Yes.
    2. If yes, how often? Daily
    3. Which ones do you read? Those that relate to my industry, also personal interest, i.e. writing and photography
    4. Why? To keep informed on what’s happening and what people think and do.
    5. What does the blog have to have for you to read it? Literate English helps but as long as it covers my topic of interest and isn’t filled with adverts that’s fine.
    6. Do you recommend Business Blogs to others? Yes, I often blog about them myself and link to them.
    7. Do you subscribe to any Business Blogs? Yes, via RSS – over 100 in fact.
    8. What would you like from a Business Blog that you’re not getting now? Can’t answer that.
    9. Final question (oh boy this is gonna hurt): Does anyone read or subscribe to my blog? Which one is yours? :-)

    Just thought I’d mention that someone posted a link to my site about 6 or 7 weeks ago at the whirlpool forums and the hits I’ve received since then have grown considerably. I’m getting double what I was getting and it’s all because I provide information that people are seeking, i.e. how to run a business from home.

    Sadly No to all your questions.

    I am a member of another forum but time spent on the computer has been restricted up till now.

    So with this new found time / freedom which Blogs do youall recommend apart from Ric’s ( yes mate I will subscribe)?

    Thanks for your responses.
    I need to be clear, my intention is not to have you subscribe (unless you really want to) but to establish how I can deliver exceptional value to my current clients and newsletter subscribers.

    It’s one thing to write a blog which allows me to get out what I am interested in; but the true worth is how I can deliver what business people want, need and maybe are not yet getting.

    These responses have been valuable.
    Thank you.
    Please continue, as any and all posts will be read.
    I may not go ahead with all the opinions offered but I am getting some pretty clear understandings from the posts here and the dozen or so personal emails I’ve received as well.

    Rgds,
    Ric

    I don’t tend to subscribe to any blog – mostly because I already get way too many emails and don’t need any more distractions! I bookmark my favourites & add them to my blog roll, so I remember to read them :)

    Do you read Business Blogs? Yes
    If yes, how often? Usually weekly (I save them up and spend time once every week or two)
    Which ones do you read? Quite a few – those where I have contributed posts/articles, and primarily any in the design/marketing/start up industries
    Why? To continue learning about areas I am not familiar with, but I also find those in the aforementioned spaces are more likely to post articles relevant to my services, allowing me to add comments etc
    What does the blog have to have for you to read it? Relevant information – especially when looking for a blog online… I don’t want to read a blog just because they picked a good key word title.. I want it to actually address my questions
    Do you recommend Business Blogs to others? I have done
    Do you subscribe to any Business Blogs? Yep
    What would you like from a Business Blog that you’re not getting now? Nothing really comes to mind
    Final question (oh boy this is gonna hurt): Does anyone read or subscribe to my blog? No – but I am happy to check it out… do you read or subscribe to mine?! ;)

    Wow!

    I love it how this thread was bumped from 2009 to now.

    Why isn’t anybody listing the blogs they read?

    Hi Nicole – I might be having a blind moment… is there a way to follow your (Black Coffee Communication) blog other than via Facebook application?
