We asked Chris Bennett, a Search Engine Optimization expert, and someone we seek advice from when it comes to the Elance website, to write a few tips on how to help your blog ‘go viral’.
People tend to think of blogs today the way that websites were thought of ten years ago: “All I have to do is get a site up and I’ll instantly get tons of traffic and my business will take off.” That was the case for a brief time with websites, but it’s no longer the case with blogs.

We would like to introduce Doubtsourcing, a weekly comic about IT outsourcing, to the Elance community.
Doubtsourcing will be a regular post on the Elance blog, so be sure to check weekly for new editions.
The creator and writer behind Doubtsourcing is Sandeep Sood, Founder & CEO of Monsoon Company, a web design/development firm based in Berkeley, CA and Mumbai, India. Sandeep draws upon his vast experience in outsourcing as inspiration for Doubtsourcing.
Here are new thoughts on Outsourcing 2.0 from Monsoon Company’s Doubtsourcing cartoon written by Sandeep Sood. Sandeep handles outsourced IT work from Berkeley for clients such as Microsoft, Disney, Wells Fargo and Cisco. Let us know what you think.
I had always been enthusiastic to live in a world where finding human capital reaches beyond my home in Silicon Valley, beyond California, and beyond the United States.
Start-ups are built upon people and when you increase the pool of talent, you increase your likelihood of success.
Today I am not only enthusiastic, but reliant on tapping into remote human capital.
As we exit 2007, Silicon Valley is once again teeming with eager new entrepreneurs and established Internet giants alike, jockeying for talent. As an investor in start-ups as well as Internet entrepreneur, I feel the pinch. So much so that the same candidate will float between four or five different start-ups I’m personally involved.
Ryan Norbauer calls himself an entrepreneurial dilettante. Read his bio and you'll quickly find he's quite a bit more, and all at 26 years old. We're big on supporting entrepreneurs, and meeting Ryan, even over email, was a refreshing experience in a world where "entrepreneur" can sometimes be a loose term.
Among Mr. Norbauer's many accomplishments, he's a writer, and guests writes on a few blogs including 43folders - a family of websites about personal productivity and simple ways to make your life a little better. I highly recommend checking it out for some handy advice. Ryan recently wrote about Enlightened Outsourcing on 43folders (see parts 1 and 2) after reading "The 4-Hour Workweek" by best selling author, Tim Ferriss, and we wanted to ask him a few more questions about his personal outsourcing experience and entrepreneurship.
