2 Years Blogging

Speedsurfingblog officially started Novembre-2007, however due my lack of knowledge in computers AND lack of time those days the first post was published in Decembre-2007. The second post was in January-2008 and that is were it really started. But after a period of posts I lost my intrest in blogging (between July and Novembre 2008), I found it extremely hard to write good articles/ get responds/ let the articles be found (search engine optimalisation).

Speedsurfingblog is a project started to show the world what happens in the speedsurfing scene. On all windsurfing forums there is a lot of information, but often I found stuff missing. Also all information is widely spread over the internet. I wanted to share my findings and path to higher speeds. But these articles were not motivating, especially because my windsurfing results were not improving in that period...

In Decembre 2008 I started blogging again. I had some time left, because all water was frozen due low tempratures. No windsurfing for me, and I didn't want to icesurf. I decided to try again making speedsurfingblog work. I added these points for speedsurfingblog to-do list:
  • interviews with intresting people in speedsurfing scene
  • publish articles about how-to setup speedsurfing gear
  • publish speedsurfing gear tests
  • Get speedsurfingblog known around the world
  • Get and keep in contact with people around the world to kn
These new points were intresting because I learned a lot by writing these stuff. Or interviewing people that have lots of experience in speedsurfing.

After I really started to have fun blogging the readers went up, intresting brands/people contacted me. And every day it seems there is more possible. Thanks to all readers and visitors!!! Thank you, and please keep on reading, comment and emailing intresting stuff!! All the readers and visitors are my motivation to continue speedsurfingblog!

  1. Keep up the good work! I know how difficult it is to have inspiration and keeping the attention of your visitors...

  2. Keep up the great work Eric! You always come up with interesting articles that keep people coming back for more. It is also great that you write about your speedsailing journey so openly. I am sure others can feel a connection with what you express and feel as you move toward your goals in our great sport.
