one reason I like blogs

Blogging has provided new avenues for companies and consumers to communicate. Today I got this comment on a post I wrote a couple weeks ago:

Hey, thanks for linking to our client, Crossings Church! If you ever need web or print design yourself, check us out at

I went to the Vale Studios website and I liked it. I especially liked the fact that they've included some quotes on their homepage that have been gathered from around the blog-o-sphere regarding their design work. It is cool to see a company grow and get noticed on the free word of mouth marketing that blogging provides. It is also cool that Vale Studios is reading blogs and thanking people for the pub, as well as returning the favor by promoting those blogs on their homepage.
