On September 28, 2004 I set up and launched my first business blog, Biz Tips Blog (no longer active). Eight years later, I have published thousands of posts on 10 blogs built on TypePad including Build a Better Blog (most were for specific purposes and are no longer active) , my primary blog here, using Wordpress, blogged for my previous company at a blog on Square Space, and recently launched a blog-site for a new project co-founded with Ellen Britt at The Future of Ink. I've set up blogs for clients, taught blogging, written about blogging and now consult on how to effectively use a blog to build a business.
I can't think of a better tool for businesses to use to get known, get found and create a repository of valuable content that helps prospects make informed decisions about working with your company.
I'm celebrating 8 years of blogging and still going strong! And, I invite you to celebrate with me!
It's Brag About Your Blog Day and I would like you to help me create a massive list featuring your blogs! In 2004, hardly anyone was using a blog as a business tool. And now, if you don't have a blog, well, good luck attracting enough interested eyeballs to your site.
I want to celebrate you and you blog!
Here's the deal…I'm creating the Big Brag About Your Blog List on my latest favorite tool, List.ly.
That means you can add the link to your blog and will be be forever on this list. Not only that, you can share this list, vote on your favorite blogs and even embed the list in a post on your own blog. How cool is that!
The more people who participate, the better for everyone. The potential for more traffic from interested readers is the goal here…more visibility, more traffic, more leads, more readers…
Before I get to the list, I also have a special blogging celebration deal for you…
