Daily Blog Tips will be three years old soon, but that is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable bloggers (you). I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

You probably chuckled with the line above (if you haven’t, go buy The Lord of the Rings and read it asap), but it does capture the spirit of this post.

Blogging is about conversations, communities and relationships, right? I was thinking about that concept this morning, and I realized that I don’t know most of my readers. Sure I know some of you, the ones who have been commenting frequently or exchanging emails with me, but that is the vast minority.

I would like to know more about you, to know where you live, what you do for a living and the like. That is what this post is all about. It is simply an invitation for you to write a comment sharing a bit of your background.

I will do my best to answer to all comments, and possibly to visit your blog or website to check it out. Don’t be shy and come join the conversation!

  1. @Pascal, thanks for the nice words. I will check your blog to know more about your projects. India is a quite connected country, so I am sure your blog will be popular.

  2. Hi Daniel,

    Love you as much as i love Internet! People like you are my great aspirations in recent times.

    I am Pascal from India. A blogger and affiliate marketer since four and half years. In coming 14th I am going to publish my blog http://www.redisred.com in “earn money online” niche. Though tens of thousands of blog already available in this niche, None of them make a NO.1 level in that niche as Darren Rowse, John chow in blogging niche.

    So I try to fix that hollow space with my presence. Soon I will be acknowledged by thousands of people.

    Keep looking on my upcoming blog to know what i am going to do.

    Note:I hereby not mentioned my experience. You can get it from my blog.

  3. @Fabio, thanks for stopping by. Focus on building an authority SEM blog and I am sure you will be able to land a job inside an agency.

  4. hey! nice post Daniel. Most people running a blog forget about the original purpose of actually get people together and networking so this one it’s well appreciated 🙂

    Im fabio, working in online marketing fulltime for a editorial company in Madrid and looking for a jobin a seo/sem agency, which is what fits me the best profesionally speaking…

    I’ve been running a few blogs in the past years, some successful some others not, the one you find on the sign it’s more of a personal repository of ideas and technical notes on online marketing.

    nice to read your stuff daily, and glad to get a few words out to you like this. cheers!

  5. @Shurandy, good luck with your studies. I am sure you will be able to find work with an online company if you design (and I would recommend that, as the lifestyle rocks).

  6. Never met before yet but I’m a follower and a subscriber of your blog.

    My name is Shurandy Thode. I’m 22 and still in college studying Communication & Multimedia Design. I’m originally from Bonaire but lived in the Netherlands for the past 5 years. I’m a social media fan and I love to do multimedia design work. Producing audio/beats, videos, webdesign, print, graphic design and so on.

    I maintain a blog called the Skillz C&M Design Blog. The concept behind it is to bring people of same interest together and so to share thoughts and ideas with each other.

    I congratulate you form now with the 3 years anniversary. Keep up the good work.

    Greetz

  7. Hi Daniel,

    Congrats on your impending 3rd anniversary! I appreciate your posts and look forward to what you have in store for us.

    I’m in the Boston area. I write the blog, palatetopen.com, and work in marketing.

  8. @Esteban, nice to know we have readers in Uruguay too. You guys have a nice soccer team.

    Keep working on the Forex niche, it is frigging profitable (very competitive too, but still).

  9. Hello Daniel,

    My name is Esteban, I’m 25 years old and I work as a Linux SysAdmin in Punta del Este, Uruguay, very close to Brazil! (By the way, days ago went to Florianopolis and Camboriu, you have great places there! Amazing drinks, beaches and the most spectacular blonde womans ever!)

    I have a few tech blogs, and also work on some Forex online business!
    Always read your blog, don’t have much time to comment but this post really got my attention :D. Keep working!

    Best Regards,
    Esteban.-

  10. @Valerie, I would highly recommend that you pick just one project and focus all your energies on it. This is the only way to create something popular (and profitable).

  11. I’m Valerie, 43 years old, living in Sugar Land, TX (just outside Houston), though born & raised and lived most of my life in California. My primary focus right now is on my Posh Blog Services site where I help people set up their first site with WordPress.

    But I’m kind of schizophrenic – I have a lot of interests and have a hard time doing just one. Consequently, I have some other blogs too – DigigirlsLibrary.com (book reviews) and DontForgetDelicious.com (cooking & recipes). I know everybody says to just have one, but I seem to have cycles of interest where I’ll be all about cooking for a while, then all about reading, then all about computers.

    It’s a challenge, but hopefully I’ll be able to make something from it eventually. Love your site and have gotten many good tidbits of info from it. Keep up the great work!

  12. @Joel, nice topic. I agree with with the content based strategy, if you need to focus on something that is the thing.

  13. I read from time to time and comment less. Mainly, I run a niche blog within my profession on a sustainable design rating system for buildings call RealLifeLEED (LEED is the program… Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). There were tons of resources out there for people to learn how to pass a LEED accreditation test, but hardly anything about how professionals could actually get their work done with regards to building certification (the whole point.) I just started writing about issues that I found difficult, assuming there were others out there with the same problems… Apparently there were, because I now pull in between 10-20K hits a month…

    I’ve built the blog on the concept of content, Content, CONTENT! and so far it’s served me well. I generally don’t worry about overly optimizing or monetizing my site, but I find your blog helpful in that it at least helps me avoid major mistakes…

    Keep it up!

  14. @Suzanne, thanks for being a loyal reader. A blog for support legal staff is interesting indeed. Plus, it is a very profitable niche. Good luck with it.

  15. Good morning! Thanks for the invitation. My boss told me about your blog — it’s ibe if his favorites. I’ve become a loyal reader.

    I work for The Missouri Bar. We’re located in Jefferson City, Missouri. I refer people to private attorneys for legal advice through The Missouri Bar Lawyer Referral Service.

    We developed a blog for law office support staff — legal secretaries, paralegals, receptionists, administrative assistants, clerks, legal assistants, etc. a little over a year ago. We found there are very few blogs dedicated to support staff personnel so we took the plunge and jumped right into the water!

    Anyone who works in an office in the capacity of “support person” is welcome! You certainly don’t have to work for a lawyer or work in a law firm. The more the merrier!

    We are located at:

  16. @Hal, with such experience I think a blog on that topic (technical manuals, technical writing and the like) could become popular. You just need to test the waters to see if there is demand.

  17. Hello Daniel, and congratulations on three years of great content. I too read your post almost every day – at times I miss it when I’m on the road. You are providing a good quality service about blogging, in fact my favorite blog about blogging.

    Aside from working in IT for various corporations – I have been writing for publication more than 20 years. My writing has been primarily technical, manuals for company policy, employee newsletters and how to booklets. I had a couple of articles published in the now defunct Modern Photography, and had a tech column for a local newspaper.

    I blog because I want to keep writing. I don’t really care if I ever make any money blogging. As with any form of media, most of us want someone to look at what we do – I’m no different in that respect; that is my blogging goal.

    Thank you for the opportunity to brag about myself, and see/meet others who read this blog. I’ve never known anyone who asked for something like this. The idea is very creative and thoughtful.

  18. @Oscar, how are you doing man? I used to live in Italy too. On top of that I also train kick-boxing and BJJ. What martial art do you practice?

  19. We already met virtually via email 🙂

    My name is Oscar and I write from Italy. I have a blog around personal development which I launched in June and it’s going very well.

    I’m also a programmer, entrepreneur, and martial artist.

  20. @Beginning Internet Marketing, thanks for the comment and good luck with the business.

  21. We are an Internet Marketing training and consultancy company based in the UK. Our whole being is about quality online material for our clients. We focus on the best tools for the job and our ethos is based in a strong belief of our strap line “There are no secrets, only knowledge”. For businesses, large and small, nowadays, they have to be more technology savvy and embrace the Internet and IT generally to truly win.

    We do enjoy your blog, particularly yesterdays on website valuation tools. Our new blogs been up for less than a month and they valued it at $100, ok only 10,000 months to go then! Thanks again.

  22. @Aprces, why don’t you start on a free hosted platform like WordPress.com, and then buy your domain name. It is much more worth it to spend time on a blog you own then on Twitter.

  23. I’m a Chinese newbie of your readers. Once I saw your logo and web design here shows very professional appearance that is reason for attracting me to read for more and subscribe

    This is a good chance to introduce and market my blog, but unfortunately, I haven’t got one

    Just mutual encouragement!

  24. @Aqeel, thanks for the nice words, and glad to know we also have readers on Pakistan.

    I would guess I would be able to work on dial-up too. Sure broadband helps, but most blogging/SEO/online marketing work tend to require low bandwidth, don’t you find?

  25. Hello Daniel and everybody,

    I’m Aqeel Syed. A blogger, SEM and WordPress enthusiast from Pakistan. A BIG fan of Daniel Scocco. I live in a small little desert town, Mankera.

    I’m working as an outsourced employ for a Florida based SERM company. I also blog at few of my blogs.

    One interesting thing, I don’t have high speed internet in my hometown. So I still get online and blog from dial-up. Really frustrating experience but I love my work so bear it.

    I don’t regularly comment at dailyblogtips.com although a long time reader, this post triggered my emotions so much that I thought I should write something telling about myself.

    Thank you for such a wonderful blog.

    Aqeel

  26. @Chris, I have seen many retweets from you lately, thanks for that.

    As for the business, I am sure you are on the right track. Just keep working on the sites and in no time you will be able to do it full time.
