Get Started Blogging at

May 29, 2008 | WordPress

People keep telling you over and over again, ?You should have a blog!? You know they?ve got a point, yet you still don?t have a blog. It?s not because:

  • You don?t want the increased, targeted traffic blogs deliver to your site
  • You don?t want the additional sales increased traffic will generate
  • You don?t want get to know your target market better
  • You don?t want to cultivate solid, long-term relationships with your customers or clients

More than likely, it?s due to one of these scenarios:

  • You have it on your ?to-do? list, but other things keep getting in the way of getting it done. If someone else would set it up, you?d take it and run with it.
  • You don?t want to waste a bunch of time trying to do it yourself, only to screw it up in the end. You?d like someone to set it up and teach you the basics of blogging – then you?d take it and run with it.
  • You don?t know the first thing about blogging and you don?t want to bite off more than you can chew on your own. You?d like someone to set it up, teach you the basics of blogging and then guide you as you get underway.
