Johnny’s Copyblogger Wrap-Up: Week of March 22, 2010

  1. Sherice, you may not know this, but in the Copyblogger offices we call him Johnny Glitter. Besides, any more guts and people may not read the original post. And we can’t have that, now can we? πŸ™‚

  2. Proof that some of the most useful & valuable additions are the simplest. Great idea, Mr. Truant!

  3. Kind of like each week’s own little P.S. I like it. And I loved Mitch Hedberg. One of my favorites from him was, “I like a escalator, man, ’cause an escalator can never break. It can only become stairs. There would never be an escalator temporarily out of order sign, only an escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience.”

  4. Brian,

    that’s a neat way to deliver more content and to keep readers sticked to your site. I wonder, do you also have a newsletter that sums up the posts?

    I’m using feedreaders, though I’ve always liked email better. It’s more personal to me than ‘yet another RSS feed’…


  5. Sherice, Brian actually removed some of the guts I had put in to make it glitterier. If you’ve met him in person, you’d understand. He’s more Bedazzled than Elton John.

  6. I did one of these weekly since August 2009, week in and week out.

    Linked to the week’s posts, spotlighted a few cool bloggers, usually backlink supported at least one person often 4 or 5, always tried hard to come up lots of cool new stuff for readers.

    Finally gave it up a couple of weeks ago.

    These were _very_ popular when they published, but they get zero traffic afterwards. Over the life of my site, the whole collection sits at the bottom of my article traffic. A corral of losers. Given how long I spent crafting each one (many, many hours), just couldn’t see the case for continuing.

    I’ll be watching here, though, perhaps I’ve missed something critical. Maybe I’ll be inspired to start them up again with a different angle. These were my favorite articles to write every week.

  7. @Johnny, that is true. Few people realize that Brian was the real-life model for the Dr. Frank-N-Furter character from Rocky Horror Picture Show. Tim Curry studied Brian’s movements and gestures for 6 months before filming. Fascinating story.

  8. @Dave Doolin – You got it. We’re doing this purely to boost weekly traffic, and convinced Johnny to do it by assuring him he’s actually funny.

    @Johnny – Pay no attention to Dave Doolin.

    @Sonia – You’re fired again.


  9. Copyblogger has posted awesome articles this month, too bad I wasn’t able to read them due to my exams, but now I’m reading the latest posts of all my favorite blogs, keep it up Copyblogger !!

  10. @Go Johnny go, yeah, I know. I’ll change the sand in there next time I go surfing.

  11. Very cool summary. Does this mean I don’t have to visit in anxious anticipation every day?

    … probably not

  12. Wow Great idea! Will this be weekly? I love it!
    PS sorry if you answered it in other comments… I just thought the more demand, the more chance of it happening… you all rock!

  13. This is awesome! I already love your daily blog, but now I can share with others your weekly recap πŸ™‚ Specifically with my non-Tweeter followers. Your blogs are always full of great information. Thank you for your commitment to always deliver with a bang! I so appreciate all you do!! As Kelly said before me… “you all rock!”

  14. Can’t people just scan the articles on the homepage?

    Isn’t this is why categories and archives where created in the first place?

    I mean come on already, enough of the round-up type of posts. The Internet is already filled with millions of doorway pages.

  15. Hi guys,

    I really enjoyed reading the blog entitle “The Bobby McFerrin Plan for Creating A Remarkable Business” and “The Difference Between Garbage and Salad.” Both were very entertaining and informative to me.

    Kind regards,


  16. I enjoyed these tips who taught me many things, especially about’…. but wait, there is ‘more’. The phrase is often found in many money makers!
