Renzie on Blogging and Blog Development.

Whether you’re a blogger, a small business owner, a webmaster, or an internet marketing practitioner, web traffic means business. It’s still a numbers game, and you’ll definitely want those numbers to interact with your site, share their discoveries with their colleagues and friends, and hopefully, keep coming back.
