I've been working on another project, sorry for the delay.
Has it paid off the blog? I am up to over 5,000 page views on the blog in less than 3 months, and within that time it has sent 100 people to our website. With out competative keywords, its hard to find a "niche" so I figure any little bit helps.
Behind this is content, and being that I am not provided with any, I have to write it myself, and I have never taken a class on it. I think it has become a passion and its great to see your numbers go up.
Better yet, its great to say..hey, the blog, that Ive created and written is out ranking a 9 year old web site, which in recent months I have gotten to jump in rankings as well for keywords, but I dont have full access, and we are in the midst of finding a developer..etc..
Thanks for all your comments!
