Do As I Say, Not As I Do…

If I’d really thought about it, you’d be linking to www.andylark.com/blogs. I would have thought carefully about my URL. But hey, I was all swept-up in the rush and excitement of blogging. Now I’m kind of stuck with it. Unless I can get everyone to update their links and do all that other necessary stuff.

Harry Joiner just made the big URL switch so I’ll be watching to see how he does. You can now find him over at Marketing Headhunter – which says lots to those that don’t know Harry about what he does.

And bonus… straight from Harry’s site, a link to Larry’s site with some interesting marketing trends.

    When I left Sun I had to change my URL. There is definitely less readership when I have a personal blog instead of a Sun blog but I suppose one could say it is quality versus quantity. The people who find my new blog are usually looking for it. Luckily the size of my audience is not highly correlated to my enjoyment of blogging. What I haven’t really figured out is how to measure whether my readership is growing. If you had wanted to use http://www.andylark.com/blogs how would you have done that? Would that meant hosting your own blog?

    –> from Andy: You could host your own blog. Or, you can domain map (people call this all kinds of things) the URL to your Blog site. For instance, if you type in http://www.grouplark.com then that redirects to my blog. Still got to do the same with andylark.com… You raise a real issue with hosting your blog on a employer’s site – this was why I didn’t. At the end of the day the audience you want will follow content.
