Who Are You - Who, Who? I Really Wanna Know
Dear Business Blog Wire visitors,

Who are you?
FeedBurner tells me I have around 150 subscribers (BusinessBlogWire FeedBurner feed).

Sitemeter tells me about 200-300 people visit my site daily.

But many of you have never left a comment here.

So I'm asking you: Who are you?

Just leave a comment below saying who you are.  Let's get to know each other a bit!

Better yet, describe yourself a little and tell us why you're here.  Where you're from, what you do for a living, why you care about business blogging, what your website is about, credit card numbers, what you'd like to discuss here, all that good stuff.

The better I know you, the better I can serve you.

And the better you know each other, the better off we'll all be.

You'll never get that info out of me alive! :)

Haha Brian :P

Well those few words say a lot about you - you're humorous, you want people to find out about Copyblogger, and you exemplify viral marketing.

Wait, I already knew that!

Well at least now everyone else here does too :).

I'm pretty new to BBW, so all I can say at the moment is that I'm here for the business blogger perspective which I'm sorely lacking in.

Other than that, in the spirit of Brian Clark: Hehe... not until I'm turning in the grave.

Thanks for the intro, ZMAng. At least I'm finding out who is reading. I've just discovered your blog too and like what I see there.

(humming the Who song)

I've been reading this blog ever since my husband and I decided to start our own web design firm (which is still in the very preliminary stages). We've got a blog that I'm working on prior to our company's launch so that we'll start out with several design articles (rather than a "welcome to our blog" post, which doesn't help anyone). I love the way blogs communicate information - the best blogs make the reader feel like they're listening to a good friend.

Awesome! Nice to meet you, Jessica. My official welcome to you and your husband.

I am just a guy struggling to get his arms around this whole blogging idea. Thanks for the guidance. I appreciate the invitation.

I'm a barbie doll in a barbie world ...

no wait thats not me at all.

But i am one of the feedburner 174!

Hi

I saw a link to one of your posts recently and have added your RSS feed to my FeedDemon reader. Haven't read many of your posts yet, but will do so in future. I have an interest in business blogging too.

Bloglines subscriber here.

Im a business blogger from the UK trying to push their adoption this side of the pond. There is virtually 0 awareness of business blogging in this country and they arent being pushed by any marketing or web development companies, as far as I'm aware. Blogs such as yours are invaluable to me as an educational tool and for spreading the word on blogs.

Hal, Greg, Ashleigh, LB - welcome to all of you.

Hal's my boss, everyone - great guy and actually a great blogger too.

Greg's got an excellent up-and-coming rapid-fire blog at Bloggers Buzz and is also working on some other exciting projects.

Ashleigh has a new blog that I just visited a few minutes ago, and judging by her (UPDATE: HIS - see below) writing style, I think it's going to be superb.

LB and I go way back - she's followed my blog from its beginnings back in October aught 5.

Matt, it's great to meet you.

I'm surprised at how many of you are in or from the UK. I should write more posts about business blogging in the UK and other countries - maybe stir that pot some and see if we can't get more people in business to be aware of and even to embrace corporate blogging around the world.

You know darn well who I am, Double E :)

Wow, Easton great. I learnt another new idea from you to attract readers. Thanks a lot for showing me the way.

I'm the webmaster at CrabApple.cc, a site devoted to letting bloggers plug themselves. I've been making the rounds of blogger's blogs, finding new ways to look at the business of blogging. I wouldn't have paid attention to the business side of things if I hadn't started making money off the Google ads.

I'm here to increase my tools for making that mad blog cash.

Welcome oldtimer Darren, fellow Know More Media author Razib, and newcomer (to my knowledge anyway) John. You all ought to meet and network with each other, too.

"Mad blog cash" - hehe. I like the sound of that.

"Double E" - hehe.

Easton - I'm a bloke! Thanks for your comment over on my blog.

Apologies Ashleigh! (kicking self for foolishness) I look forward to learning from you at your blog.

I've gotten mail addressed to E. Aston, Elston, Eston and probably some Houstons or Eatons and who knows what else. Plus the doctors said before I was born that I would be a girl. I should have known better!

I use bloglines to review all of my feeds and was very happy to find your blog. Good idea for a post. There are some software packages out there that let you know who has actually signed up on your site - not sure if we're there yet with blogs and RSS.

Hi Easton - I am a bad lurker but a faithful reader, and one of the b5'ers. :) I sure do enjoy this blog alot - keep up the great work!

I think I first stumbled upon your blog because of blogtipping day :) I like reading your insights. It helps me with what I do for a living :)

I am into open source and writing, by the way.

Introducing: Ming

I read this because sometimes your ideas keep me on my toes. and sometimes i think of blogging for money, but i'm not sure. so i don't for now.

you're on my rss reader and i read the post if the title is relevent to eiter of my blogs, i also like to read about real life:)

i'm not sure if i have commented before, but you've visited me atleast once:)

Matt Craven :)

Well I'm a bit late to the party, as always, but I'm Benjamin Yoskovitz. I run 2 sites:

http://www.igotnewsforyou.com
http://www.whereisbasil.com

I'm in Montreal, Quebec and recently returned from vacation in beautiful Vancouver (which is why I'm late here.)

I've commented here before and enjoy the blog immensely.

I'm Phil Gerbyshak, and I blog over at Make It Great! I first read this blog because of Blog Tipping, and now am a dedicated subscriber. I enjoy the tips you provide immensely, the link love you throw to little known bloggers, and also the fact that your feed plays nicely with Bloglines.

Keep up the great work!

I like to see that since you made this post the feedburner subscription has gone up another 20 people :-)

Chad, Christina, Clair, Ming, Matt, Ben, Phil, Greg - welcome. You're my friends because you're here. Anytime you want me to write about something, just let me know. Oh, and Happy Blogtipping Day!

My firm focuses on collaboration in healthcare. I'll leave my marketing site, wiki and blogs below. I'm scanning for technology that can assist with live brainstorming with participants in various remote locations.
