Also present at this weekend’s National Cycling Championships were a few of my favorite bloggers:

Below, Greenville’s very own James T:

And Andy Woolard at the Hincapie Sportswear party and fashion show (left of frame just a few feet behind George, probably posting to Twitter):

I’ll even throw in H3O – even though they aren’t bloggers. They are, however, a sports marketing/branding firm, so I guess they’re relevant here. AND they were EVERYWHERE filming my every move!!! (Or maybe I just got in their way a lot. Whatever floats my boat.):

And last but not least: BikeHugger‘s crew… which I didn’t shoot photos of because by the time I ran into them, a) the Canon was safely retired for the evening and b) my camera hand was busy holding a chilled glass of delicious yet suspiciously tangy… lemonade. Very cool group of folks. 🙂

*Sigh.* As of today, the brandbuilder’s Power 150 (Ad Age) ranking has dropped to 203rd.

To make matters worse, that ranking still links to the brandbuilder blog’s old URL (at blogspot). This brandbuilder blog (wordpress) is nowhere near the Power 150’s radar.

Same blog, new url: All the difference in the world.

I guess the brandbuilder’s Power 150, technorati and Viral Garden rankings shouldn’t matter to me. It isn’t that the content has become less relevant: Moving to wordpress essentially restarted the visitor and link clock to zero, that’s all. With time, things will get back to where they were. So yeah, I know I should just press on and not care…

It’s just that I’m not that friggin’ zen.

Dear Blogger/Blogspot,

We’ve been together for what… three years now? Almost four? Wow. Time flies when you’re having fun. We’ve had a good time together, writing and publishing blog posts. But you know, this last month, I’ve been seeing another blog… and I think that the grass is greener there. So… I think we should still be friends… but I think that I might be moving to WordPress soon.

I hate to hurt your feelings, and I do stay up at night wondering what the move will do to our technorati rankings, but whatever. Change is necessary. Evolution is necessary. I need to spread my wings. So sometime in the next few weeks, I am going to start moving all of my stuff over to WordPress.

It isn’t anything you did. It’s just… I need more. Cleaner pages, better reporting, more control over my own posts, better integration with what will, over the next year, become a more comprehensive website.

I will keep you and all of our friends updated, but I wanted you to be the first to know: the brandbuilder will be moving to WordPress in the next few weeks. I’ve played with the idea several times in the past, but now that I have been testing WP for a few weeks, I understand why the move is necessary.

I’ll keep everyone updated on what should be a pretty smooth and painless little move.

Have a great Monday!
