Every day I learn a little more about blogging. I am slowly beginning to understand how powerful it is as a communication tool and the benefits to me personally and my business are considerable. There has never been an easier way to mass communicate and to be interactive with my customers, readers of my books and the small business community in general.
I really recommend any business or individual who can diseminate a lot of information and who has something to say to get a blog. It’s easier these days than it was a year ago and if you want to read up on blogging I found the following book particularly useful to get my head around the concept before I started and even more so, maximising my blogging once it was up.
Book title – Blog Wild – How everyone can go blogging by Andy Wibbels (published by Nicholas Brealey Publishing – ISBN 1857883691).
I also make a point of asking my long suffering web development guru, Andrew Burman from Andromeda about a million questions every week. There is a link to his site here www.andromeda.com.au.
Check out other blogs before you do your own. There are vastly different styles and themes. From my perspective I love reading how other people write their blogs and what they say. I also welcome any feedback about my blog – specifically ways to make it more interesting and appealing. So take the plunge and blog on!
Thanks for reading, writing and blogging – AG.
