Who said talking back was bad?

Celebrate_3Yesterday was a momentous day at Drew’s Marketing Minute.  The milestone I have been waiting to celebrate.


One thing I learned very quickly as I entered the world of blogging is that there are A LOT of numbers.

My blog will be 7 months old tomorrow.  This is my 246th post.  At this moment,  I have 590 blogs linking to me.  Technorati says I’m #4,137.  Mack’s Top 25 Marketing Blogs says I’m #7.  My blogroll is about to get  much bigger.

All of that matters.

But not as much as the comments.  The comments are the interaction.  The comments are the conversation.  The comments are why I blog.

David Reich of my 2 cents posted the magic 1,000th comment on the But what if the blogger is lying post. I’ve invited David (a la Paul’s invite to Tim Jackson on his 1,000th comment) to write a guest post.  I can’t wait to see what he has to say.  I couldn’t ask for a more articulate, insightful blogger to invite in.

Thanks to each and every one of you who have shared a thought, an idea, a question or a link.  You add the flavor and spice to this place.  I am grateful to each of you.  And I hope our conversations have just begun.
