A Note To My Readers

Hello Friends, Readers, and Followers!

First of all, let me express how grateful I am for your interest and attention to this site. I’ve worked hard for the last six months to invest more time, energy, and writing here.

You’ve amazed me. My blog stats have more than doubled since January. I’m on the verge of breaking through 10,000 pageviews a month. Thank you!

Second, I hope you know I work hard to practice the various tips and strategies I write about here. I am taking this week to do some halftime work. I am contemplating a couple of things:

a. The effectiveness of writing 4-5 posts a week.
b. Adding a “weekly-ish” newsletter aimed at developing lifelong leaders.

I’ll be taking a poll when I get back seeking the feedback of my community here. I write for you and want to continue to offer a resource that meets your needs.

Finally, I’m going to step away from the daily blog routine for the next ten days. I want to dedicate the rest of this week to evaluating this site. Next week, I’ll be speaking at a High School Camp in Southern California.

While I’m away, I’m going pull my most popular posts over the last few years and republish them. I believe each one contains a message which is still relevant and meaningful. I trust you’ll enjoy reading or re-reading them.

I’ll be back with a brand new post on July 16, 2012.

Always appreciative of your support,

Tim Milburn

    Tim,
    Thank you for this note. I am rethinking my strategy as well. The common wisdom of blanketing social media seems intelligent. The problem I am experiencing is that it is difficult to be that attentive and provide leadership inspiration to my clients. I have to believe that I should focus on creating the ‘on the ground’ impact that is the heart of my message and be a little less active digitally. I think my followers would benefit from the nourishment of my actual work in more profound doses even if there were less of them.

      Hi Alan!
      Great points. These are the things I’m considering as well. Part of my strategy is to grow my online readership. One of the ways you do that is by consistently posting great content. I’m still trying to figure out how “consistently” I need to do that and develop my tribe.

      I operate from the philosophy that less is more. Thus, I’d rather do four things that rate and “8″ on a scale of 1-10 then to do eight things that rate a “4″. Also, trying to figure out which of my projects will generate the most return. Glad I can take some time to evaluate it all. Blessings your way.
