The lovely Bill Slawski from SEO By the Sea has tagged me in a new blog meme: Five Reasons Why I Blog. Thanks Bill. :)
Ok, so why do I blog?
I was Pushed Into It
Ok maybe that is a bit harsh but I was encouraged to blog – it was tied into a blog design project ThinkProspect was doing for a client. Admittedly I had heard of all the benefits of blogging but just hadn’t found the time to start my own. I’m now very grateful for the push.
I Love Blogging
Since that early push I’ve discovered I really, really love blogging. It took a while to get the hang of it all but now I love it. It’s a great creative outlet and usually gives me a nice push on those mornings I’m finding it hard to get going.
To Improve My Writing Skills
This has almost been a side benefit but I’ve found blogging has really helped my writing and finding my own voice. Something I felt I had struggled with previously.
To Communicate with Clients and Prospects
Blogging has been a nice way to communicate with clients and prospective clients. In particular prospective clients can get a feel for me and ThinkProspect before they even pick up the phone. I’m amazed at how many people have come to us after reading and liking the blog.
To Educate and Inform
I’ve had so many wonderful people help and support me over the years it’s great to give back to others. I’m also so appreciative for all the comments I get for the blog. It means a lot to me to know people are enjoying it and talking about it.
Here are the 5 people I’d love to hear from:
- Miriam Ellis-Loraditch from SEO Igloo Blog
- Li Evans from Search Marketing Gurus
- Darren Moloney from On SEO Pond
- Barry Schwartz from Search Engine Roundtable
- Pierre Far from eKstreme.com
