I am so grateful to those of you sending me notes this month acknowledging my 10 years in business as an independent consultant, services provider, and journalist concentrating on the webinar industry. It has been such a rewarding decade, and I look forward to many more years of helping the business community achieve "Webinar Success!"
They say that once something is on the internet, it never really disappears. That may be true in a technical sense… It is possible for a dedicated investigator to find old cached material… But sites go away and domains don't get renewed. That has happened to some of my early blog posts, made on a blogging platform that went out of business. I also wrote quite a bit on the old Webinar Wire blog, similarly defunct.
Fortunately I saved the text locally, and I was browsing through the old posts this weekend. If I do say so myself, there were some really useful tips, guidelines, and suggestions in there. I hate for the information to be lost forever, so I have decided to re-run the best of the archives on The Webinar Blog. It will also give me the opportunity to update things where appropriate to account for changes in technology.
I am not trying to put anything over on my audience, so I will label re-use of older material. I just wanted you to know that there is a reason behind the reposting that goes beyond simple laziness! Of course I will continue to add new content to the blog as well, particularly developments in webinar/webcast technology, industry news, and advice.
I would very much appreciate it if you could help spread the word about the blog. The next few weeks are going to be particularly feature-rich, and I think readers will get a lot of value from the information. As you should know, I do not use my readership list for ANY other communications or marketing. You will not get any solicitations or emails beyond automatic notification of new posts (for those who subscribe by email).
If you have a friend or colleague who would benefit, you can direct them to the main blog page: www.TheWebinarBlog.com or you can invite them to subscribe (upper right-hand corner) at https://feeds.feedblitz.com/thewebinarblog. If you want an easy email template, you can click on this link to open an email message you can customize and send. Thank you for your support and continued interest. Here's to the next decade of webinar growth!
