My 500th Blog Post – A Big Thank You

Today is my 500th post here at Influential Marketing (not counting guest posts), so I wanted to do something significant. Over the past three years, I have had the chance to connect with lots of smart marketers from around the world, share ideas and learn from readers of this blog through their comments and added discussion on their own blogs. Aside from the personal benefits I have gotten from my blog (book deal, media, etc.), the longer lasting benefit has been and will continue to be a strong network of friends, colleagues and fellow marketers. I met many of them in person for the first time at SXSW and will meet many more in two weeks at Blogger Social in New York. In this post, I’m offering thanks to all of you in the best way a blogger knows how to – by linking to you. 

So, here is a not so short list of all the people who have helped foster discussion on IMB, made the ideas stronger, and given this blog a context it could never have achieved on its own*.  Of course, you could also look at this list as the ultimate in linkbait, which (of course) it is. After all, you don’t get to 500 posts without learning how to create a bit of traffic through link love …

* Of course, in a list this long it’s likely I missed many blogs (probably because I just ran out of time cutting and pasting).  If I did manage to forget you, either leave a comment or send me a note at rohitaustralia [at] gmail [dot] com and I’ll add you to the list!

  1. Wow. I can’t believe you included Lijit in your long list of link love, but thank you for the honor. Your SXSW “core conversation” about how to piss off a blogger was awesome but I’m really looking forward to speaking with you further at the Blogger Social. Congrats on making it to 500 and best wishes on the next 500!

  5. I’m so late to this party. My 500th was three days after you 😉 Serendipity. It was good getting to talk at Blogger Social. And I am liking the book. I’ve already spread the word and I haven’t even gotten to page 50.
