Timely post - I am working on a blog for my buddy in the mortgage business. I read a similar article yesterday about blogging for business and the author made a good point:

In the Real Estate industry, blogs won't generate a lot of leads directly. They do allow you to connect with people through conversation. It's up to you to capitalize on those relationships.

Question where to find the time ...

I think blogging is a very valuable tool for business. For small business the problem is finding the time. You don't want to have a blog that just reprints other people information but coming up with original, thoughtful content on a daily basis is really tough.

Where do you find the time?

Because I offer a service, I use my blog as a non-aggressive means to prove my qualifications. My area, college consulting, primarily involves getting advice. Even though I may be giving away some of my knowledge for free, it helps people understand that I not only know my stuff, but I can truly help them if they chose to use my services.

I need a blog to help me spread the news about my business.

For me blog is a nice way to promote my sites and also the services and products that I offer.

If you have a site, it's advisable to start your own blog as well.

As much as I am a full supporter of blogs.. I can't help but wonder what will happen when everyone and their mother has one. Who knows.. maybe nothing, but it is an interesting topic.
