An Open Invitation to Guest Bloggers

Yesterday marked a milestone in our brief existence as Business Continuity bloggers.  Our tracking software indicated that we achieved our first 100+ unique visitors/day to our blog page yesterday with 104 hits!!  On average we get about 20 – 30 visitors each day, but that average has been steadily climbing throughout our existence.  To date, the largest single month has seen 720 unique page visits to our blog page – but this month is already threatening that mark.

We are pleased with this traffic and thank you all for investing your valuable time in checking out the topics, issues and subjects we choose to blog about.

As a result, we think it is now a good time to issue an open invitation to any of you that might wish to post a guest blog article on our site.  Whereas, we love the challenge to come up with fresh and creative blog articles, we also welcome the opportunity to add new voices and flavor to our page.  And, you can be confident that some of your peers and co-planners will actually see your articles … hopefully, at a continued rate of over 100/day.

Please feel free to indicate your interest in being a guest blogger through a comment to this entry or by emailing us at jflach@safeharborconsulting.biz.

You can email us with an idea or complete draft article and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.

We will reserve the right to pick and choose those articles that we deem appropriate for this blog page, but I am confident that we will have lots of flexibility to allow your thoughts to grace and improve our page.

We also continue to have an open invitation for complimentary service providers to include a link to their pages in our “My Links” section of this page.

Thanks for your patronage to our page.  If you were one of the 100+ that visited us yesterday – thanks for coming back.

Enjoy your weekend and think about being a guest blogger – we would love to hear from you.

A Call for Ideas and Topics

I am doing the best I can to keep this blog fresh, relevant, timely and topical.  I am glad to say that the blog tools I use indicate that we are getting a relatively good amount of traffic to this page every day.  I am also glad to see that a few of you have added this page to your facebook “likes” – I am a statistics nut and I love watching numbers grow over time.  Hopefully, one day, we will see 3 digits or more in our fan counts.

If there are any topics in particular you would like to see us tackle on this page, please let me know by adding a comment to this post.  Anything is fair game; inside or outside the box of business continuity, disaster recovery, crisis management, emergency response or whatever tag we wish to apply to our field.  I can even be enticed to discuss other topics as well, but advice to the lovelorn is probably something I should stay away from.

I post a link to many of my blog pages in Linked-In discussion groups.  I think this helps generate traffic to this page, but it also results in most of the discussions and counterpoints being posted there and not on the blog page itself.  I would like to try to get more of you to post your comments here for those who may not be Linked-In members, but, perhaps we can achieve that over time.

If you want to learn more about Safe Harbor Consulting, the company I work for, please visit our website at www.safeharborconsulting.biz.  Please take note of the “.biz” extension to make sure you end up in the right place.  The way I like to tell people to remember that is to repeat the phrase, “Safe Harbor Consulting put the ‘biz’ in business continuity.”  And, yes, I can be corny, if you haven’t already figured that out.

So let’s hear from you …

  • What are some of today’s issues you think we ought to post about?
  • What are the typical, everyday problems and issues you find yourselves dealing with?
  • What are the new and creative planning techniques you think we should be researching?
  • What are recent business/technology interruption events you think we should all study and learn from?

Or just drop a post letting me know who it is that has stopped by to take a look at things.

And, by all means, feel free to add your two-cents worth on any post we have already shared – even if it is to point out how off-based I am with my editorial.  Others have done so already, please join in the fun.
