I've been blogging for six years. I used to be fixated on metrics. This weekend I was shocked to realize the lifetime value of my blogging and the traffic. Here's my key take aways

Welcome and General  - 
 
Welcome to this Community. Google's launch of Communities corresponds nicely with a time when I've been thinking about how my professional life has evolved and the direction that I'll be taking my personal brand.

This Community will be similar to the Facebook Community Manager, Advocate and Evangelist group (which is vibrant and growing). But many of us will also want to play over here on Google+. It will be interesting to see how they evolve their version of a Community platform.

I added a number of Categories to kick things off. Let me know if you would like others. After all this is your Community!

Welcome +Sarah Hoffman . I love how you've evolved your brand. (I was reading About how you found yourself.) These past couple of weeks I've caught up with some of you that sought me out long ago. Am so glad to hear happy stories! This is an amazing profession. Let's BE the future!

3D Coffee Art

I've been seeing Kazuki Yamamoto's coffee art for some time now, but now he's added a new dimension. His 3D coffee art is beyond amazing. It'd be hard to drink and ruin one of his creations.

Metrics and KPI's  - 
 
Data should be your best friend. What challenges do you have with deciding on KPI's and reporting?

There's a lot out there on this, but the most recurrent problem I find is delivering daily and weekly metric analysis reports ... and then noticing that the people they're written for look at them on fortnightly, monthly or completely random timescales. Why look at the road more often than you're going to reach for the steering wheel?
