Default Blog Forum Intro - Setup, Create & Promote A Blog

BLOGS & BLOGGING

Welcome to our topics about blogging. We're glad you have made it this far and we hope you will find the following forum threads helpful in using a blog as a successful tool for your small business. Below we have compiled a list of popular forum threads that will help you decide if a blog is something you want to begin, and then how to get setup and start blogging so that it is helpful to your business efforts. If you would like to help us improve this page with any suggestions please feel free to add your comments below.

IMPORTANT BLOG TIPS

The biggest challenge most members report in creating a blog is the effort and time it takes to consistently add new posts to their blog. It is simple. A blog that is active with daily or multiple posts per week will have a lot more success than a blogger who happens to post updates once in a while. Additionally, making sure the quality and value of your content posted is worthwhile is an important consideration when it comes to how well your blog will be received by others. By making thoughtful posts on your blog and contributing comments on other blogs you can increase your chances of receiving exposure with the blog you create.
