Neville:

Nice post ... and I'm glad to see that your project is off to such a good start.

On a much smaller scale, I've recently had a similar experience where my blog helped me professionally.

I recently signed on a new client who first found me through my blog. After reading my posts and learning my philosophy of marketing and PR, he felt comfortable enough to call me and ask if I could help his company.

And because he knew my writing style, there was none of the awkwardness of showing samples or sending clips through the mail.

In other words, my blog not only helped improve my visibility, but it also helped cut through much of the upfront "sales" process of gaining a new client.

I agree completely that blogs build trust across distances. I would feel completely comfortable referring work to -- or collaborating with -- my favorite bloggers.

Neville Hobson

Thanks John. Your example is a great one. I know there are others, too, who could illustrate how blogs have helped them create and build new relationships.

More to come!

Vin

Hi Neville,
Your success with actually using a blog for project collaboration is very inspiring indeed.
Are you still looking for writers?
Are you also looking for a particular skill set or domain knowledge? Like, good MS Office skills, or knowledge of the Insurance industry and so on...
Do let me know.
Vin
