Just read this post on Youthedesigner about using a design blog to find new clients.
Wanted to get everyone's thoughts on this. If you have a design blog, has it helped you get more clients? Do you think maintaining and keeping a design blog would be helpful for you as a freelance designer?
Share your blog if you have one as well!
well, i just redesigned my site a few weeks ago and it has a blog but it isn't really a design blog, i will talk about design, but not like a problogger, just some random things here and there.

Glad you liked it.
You're welcome about the write up. ;) I also shared it on twitter and facebook so i could get the ucreative to more people.
Yep, a while back I decided to combine my portfolio, photo blog, and blog into one website. I try to post tips, tutorials, and advice from time-to-time as well as new photography and other bits of interesting including reviews etc. The idea being that the additional content will help with search engine ranking and show that I am confident in my skills to offer help for others aspiring to learn.
I have gotten several clients just from my website/blog and it has been beneficial for me. I do think I could probably add more content that appeals to more clients than designers like the linked article in original posts explains however. My site with blog is http://synthetictone-media.com
Huum good blog, for new designers it will a inspiring one. It is goo that you are understanding there problem and looking forward to help and assist them.... Good job, keep it up....
