This is our 400th Blog Post! Time for a little celebration!
It is hard to believe I have been blogging long enough to have 400 posts on the web site. What a learning adventure this blogging has been. I have to laugh at myself when I look at my posts from way back when.
Check out some of these early posts:
Take a look at my post about the best, fried mullet!
Also about fireworks sales being high tech.
I learned how important choosing the right keywords were so I used to write blog posts before the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) to promote Upstream Marketing clients and in 2012 for the week of OTC if you used Google to look for OTC 2012 Exhibitors my blog ranked just under the official OTC event listing. Not a lot of content, but it ranked due to the list of exhibitors. You can check out that post here: OTC 2012 Exhibitors.
I often felt like a reporter and even blogged live from the floor of OTC. Offshore Technology Conference – Live From The Floor- Day 3
It is good to be able to laugh at ourselves and see our growth. Looking back I failed to use images. I used long sentences and paragraphs and didn’t break up the content with headings, and many other things. I certainly have improved as time has gone by. As they say, “practice makes perfect.”
Eventually, I learned how to add images to blogs in 2016 and now include images for every blog. I’ve learned a lot more about keywords and SEO. I could go on and on, but you get the picture. Everyone has to start somewhere and build on their knowledge and continue to grow every day.
So here’s to 400+ more posts in the future. I can’t wait to see what I learn next so I can share with you, my readers.
