On blogging with Fadi El-Eter of the PM Hut

Fadi's blog is different from other blogs I have listed here because it's actually a curated list of posts by other bloggers.  Unlike automated aggregators, Fadi's PM Hut blog is curated by hand, so the content reflects his underpinning beliefs and values.

What's the most important thing you've learned in the last 5 years of blogging?

I've learned in the last 5 years that people really like lists, for example, Top 10 Mistakes, 100 Project Management Questions, etc... People also appreciate fun, and lightweight articles. Articles that are long usually get a very low readership.

Why are you still blogging on project management/Business Analysis?

I think project management has a huge potential, and is growing at an incredible speed.

What do you think you'll be blogging about in 5 years? (And will you still be going?)

I will continue to focus on project management. I think though that the concept of PM Hut will change, there will more focus on traffic coming from mobile phones and (maybe) tablets.

What's the biggest social media mistake you've made?

I don't think I'm focusing a lot on traffic from social media, and that's a problem. I think Twitter will die in a couple of years (or be integrated in another product), and I believe Facebook will dominate the Internet traffic, and will overtake Google very soon.
