Here is a really good example of the power of a blog:
- Go to www.google.com.
- Type “Rod” in the search box.
- Click “I feel lucky!”.
That’s right our Rod is the #1 Rod in the whole world!
What about Rod Stewart (with more than $250m of album sales, and six consecutive UK #1 albums) or Rod Laver (the only professional tennis player in history to win all four grand slams in the same year) or Rod Steiger (who won an Academy Award for best actor in 1967) or even Rod Flanders (son of Ned)?
All less important, according to Google.
As far as I can tell, none of them have a blog. Coincidence? ;-)
Amazingly this also works if you search for “Rowan Simpson” even though I’ve only been doing this blog for just over six months.
Thanks to everybody who has linked here or commented. You’ve all made it much easier for people who are looking to find me on Google.
And hopefully you’ve enjoyed some of what I’ve written in the process.
