Let me know what you think
I have run an internal blog for my staff which I do every day and have over 4,500 postings but with only a few hundred responses. Having said that the LMI team volunteer that they really appreciate my keeping them informed of what I am thinking, doing etc and that it aids communication within the business.
With this external blog it is much the same. I get questions but very few written comments that give me feedback one way or the other on the content, frequency or quantity of postings.
Having said this, at two recent conferences I have had people come up to me and say that they appreciate and get a lot out of the blog and that they pass it on to colleagues and clients.
Today I received several notes via LinkedIn and Facebook (none by the comments section of the blog) saying thanks for the posts. Thanks, these two second responses show that the effort is worth it. It is particularly rewarding to hear when a broker or insurer has passed a particular post to one of their customers.
So my request to you is that if you like what you read, do not like what you read, want a question answered, want to offer a different point of view or simply want to say hi, please use the comments section. Any feedback is appreciated.
