How to Blog as Business Strategy
In 2006, as a professional blogger, I established a NEW Blogger Page on Successful-Blog. I filled it with links to resources and advice for people starting a new blog. Yet, as my blog and my business kept growing and changing, the New Blogger Page moved to the background of what I did. Social media networks needed exploring. SOBCon and my own business were growing. New clients were taking the time I used to have for keeping the page in it’s most updated condition.
Yet my blog still supports me and my business endeavors, especially as content strategy, content marketing, and content management have all become critically important to every business. So I’ve decided to reinvest in the New Blogger Page with an eye how blogs fit with Successful Online Business Strategy today. I’ve read through the original links and spent hours researching more. Every link included is here because the content is important to succeeding.
New beginnings inspire and energize me.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be publishing new blog posts filled with resources for successful and outstanding bloggers today. This post is the first in that series.

If you don’t have a blog in your business strategy, your strategy has a gaping hole.
You’re missing a chance to connect with customers around your deepest and most useful expertise. You’re working right past the opportunity to show customers how you can make their work and their lives easier, faster, and more meaningful.
Easier, faster, more meaningful are irresistible.
