Yesterday I advertised for a tiny amount of writing/editing help for this blog on one entry on one city in Craigslist. Today my hit counter almost doubled. Such is the power of Craigslist. If you don’t know about it, it’s great you should become familiar with it! (Incidentally Craig and the CEO are both good buddies with my friend the wonderful queen of PR Susan Mactavish Best, so I know them via her reflected glory). If I was eBay or Knight Ridder I’d be worried about the way Craigslist is swallowing online ads, but sadly no matter how powerful the reach of Craigslist, no one wants to take away some old closet doors I’m advertising on it!
