Social Media and the Small Business…The power of the Blog post

This is the second installment of Social Media and the Small Business, a series designed to educate the small business owner on the power of social media in today’s business world.
 

The Power of the Blog Post

No doubt if you have been looking around cyber-space and listening to the masses, you will have heard a hefty amount of blog-haters.  As a matter of fact in 2008, Wired.com, Wired Magazine’s website, said not to even bother with those pesky little blogs.  As a matter of Fact, blogs are far from dead, especially business blogs.  Here we are, three years later, and yet another story about the necessity of blogs goes up on BusinessInsider.com

Blogs are a staple in today’s business climate.  It is the Wii of the business world…not the flashiest or panosh of the HD systems like the Xbox 360 and PS 3.  No one in the gaming community really talks about it, yet everyone has a Wii.  So it works with a blog.  A blog doesn’t have the flash of Facebook or the speed of Twitter, but the online community tends to miss it if it’s not there.  Why is that?  Well, I can come down to one solid answer…in business it has become morally correct to operate a blog.  Strange but true.

Blogging isn’t going anywhere…any questions?
