This blog has been a labor of love since 2002. I know there’s a pretty dedicated fan base, a hard core group that I’ve helped to earn millions of frequent flyer miles, great upgrades, amazing discounts. I love you all, I really do.
Perhaps the group that reads this blog will never reach beyond the hardcore. I don’t get more than 100,000 unique visitors in a month (I really don’t know how many folks read me via RSS feed). I’ll never be one of the ‘really popular’ blogs because I suppose I don’t write for a general audience. I don’t do the “5 Ways to Get Upgraded on Your Next Flight” pieces, where nearly everything in it is either (a) wrong or (b) too vague to be useful.
Once in awhile I get 15 seconds of fame, like appearing on the front page of cnn.com over a weekend. And I think Richard Quest will be airing an interview with me sometime later this month. Occasionally that’s fun.
And yet I have dreams…
Consider nominating this blog for the 2010 Bloggies. If not readers, perhas recognition would be nice!
Deep down I’m not much of a self-promoter. I don’t pitch my posts to other bloggers. I don’t advertise. I just write what I write, hopefully folks find it useful, and deep down I just believe that useful blogs will gain traffic. And yet I’m still pretty small potatos even after all these years….
