I'VE BEEN PUBLISHING on Typepad at least once every fortnight since July 2002. I'm motivated by the thought that I'm creating agency in the process.
This has not been an easy row to hoe. Five years after I switched from Movable Type to Typepad, my average daily readership of Inside View fell below 1000 daily visitors. The downslope happened in mid-2007, even before it won "Best Technology Blog" in Ireland. Its peak viewership happened in late 2005, when all my work (i.e., photos and audio) emanated from my Typepad hub. Twenty year later, I still attract more than 1000 daily instances in aggregate but you have to count Flickr photostreams (around 400 a day), my YouTube channel (100 a day) and my podcasts (150 a day). Add 550 different people viewing my tweets and Instagram content and I'm back to 1000 daily impressions.
But I know my voice has faded in the mix.
