    Thanks for the mention, Liz. I enjoyed reading all those other articles. Copyblogger’s points about putting yourself in the reader’s shoes (or sandals) is something I can’t hear too often. So easy to forget. Most business Web site content is woefully lacking when it comes to really connecting with customers–don’t you think?

    Nice links, Liz! I’ve really enjoyed the read, especially Search Engine Marketing–Size Doesn’t Matter. No nachos though… I had to do with potato chips.

    Seth asked a very pertinent question. But I think the answer is “yes”. Many things we don’t read still exist… They don’t exist for us, (or for the readers), but they are still there. I mean… we cannot even see all the stars in the skies, but they are there, waiting for us to discover them. Does this make any sense?

    Anyway, Seth’s advice is, as usual,priceless.

    Hi Brad!
    I didn’t know whether you’d notice or be still gone for a few days! Glad to see you!

    I think we don’t think about readers enough even if we dream about them. :)

    How cool, Mihaela, that’s Brad’s blog you’re talking about — Word Sell!

    I think your comment makes complete sense, but Seth’s point probably wasn’t meant to be that literal. I wondered myself why he choose that title?

    Tools are making us more dependant i’d say..we should know how and why stuff still works.

    And posting for me is a personal thing, if someone reads it and comments all the better!


    Great finds Liz.

    Hi TechZ,
    I agree with what you are saying about tools. I’ve decided a while back that I need fewer tools. Posting for me is about what my thought are and where the blog is going over all.
