Random Bits

Episode 7 – 8/6/2007

Guest: Chris Garrett, Blogger

Background: Developer, Entrepreneur, and Blogger

Total Time: 27 minutes

Chris blogs numerous places, including here sometimes, and is someone who is considered a professional blogger. He and I sat down and had a great conversation about blogging tips and strategies. Our talk actually went twice as long as it should have, but it was a great conversation and I didn’t want to cut it short! So, we rambled on and I have turned this into a two-parter packed full of great information. Chris really knows his stuff and this is a great post for beginner and experienced bloggers alike!
