A Measure of Success

Although there haven't been any new blogs added here in a while (although there are many coming), the hits keep coming and we keep chugging along. I did a little bit of cleaning up today, and was thinking about how I measure success around here. There are many ways, really. How many hits I get, how many comments, clicks on ads, emails thanking me, etc.

However, all of these pale in comparison to the most important measure. That measure is outclicks. As a directory blog, I decided that my measure of success would be how many people that visit this blog click on the other blogs that I feature. The most important reason is that I want the voices of social workers to be heard. My hope is that if people see their blog being visited via this blog, they will link back here and we'll create a great loop of information sharing.

There are SO many great SW blogs out there, and this place is a testament to that fact. Let us all share the love and spread our info around.

I love this Web site! It's a perfect place for me to "take a break" when writing term papers late at night, and when I feel disconnected it's where I can find my "peeps!"

Thanks for all your hard work!

I love this resource. I have a link to it from my blog as well. And it is refreshing, inspiring, and sometimes just the energy boost I need to get through my next post to see how many other social workers are out there writing into the blogosphere and cyber-abyss :)!
