My Bet With Scott (continued)
It took me about three months to build a community for this blog with over 500 members.
I thought Techcrunch would do it in about a day when they put their reader roll on their front page.
Well it's been a day and Techcrunch has almost caught up to me.
But a funny thing happened. I had about 450 members yesterday morning. I now have 510 members. I haven't added 60 members in a single day since the day I put the reader roll on my blog.
One of two things is happening. My post on MyBlogLog yesterday got more people to sign up (certainly a part of it) or the people joining at Techcrunch and elsewhere in the past day are also joining my community.
If the latter is a significant part of why this happened, then it points to the fact that networks of networks are a powerful community building tool.
I am going to dig into this.
