Hello Everyone? Or should I say to those that read the blog? Or take the time to find it...or know where it is? I suppose that since I am blogging, my first discussion is going to be on the subject of blogging. So what is it? Well since I do not want any of us to be confused I have decided to give you Webster's definition of a blog....
"Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. The word blog has taken on an even looser meaning — that of any bit of media wherein the subject expresses his opinion or simply talks about something."
I think the last sentence would leave some disturb because it make you think of the media or even less of the media? Which some know to be half truths..isn't that right?
I would like to ask everyone a question...if a blog can be informative and inspirational would it make a difference? Is it a easy way to advertise and inform your readers, (or listeners) to lead and guide them in a direction that you may want them to go? Here is the deal, if you have the opportunity to blog and educate the community, and you don't, then you are out of your mind. Here is why. You have all the material to create a blog, to make a blog...and the way to make a need in about fifteen minutes. I was speaking with a gentleman about cold calling. We all know that you can't get everyone on the first call, but how about leading them through a series of eight phone calls? Blogging is the same way.
We are all in business to help each other through networking, right? What is more inspirational than that? Especially in our economic times? Folks, now is the time to capitalize on the wonderful opportunity that exists today with blogging. Why? Because you can educate them, which goes back to blogs, calls, networking, and establishing relationships. That is what blogs are for if you use them in the right way to entice the reader to have the desire to learn more in the coming week...or whenever you post your next blog.
All the best to everyone and their success!
