Writing for Others

May 25, 2008

Blogger Seth Godin has a great post about communication — that maybe as we try to say something and it isn’t getting through, it’s better to change your words (or as Frank Luntz would say, use words that work) than just yell the same ones louder. This is something that makes things difficult for the average blogger, being that you can’t adjust your words to fit your audience because you don’t know who your audience is. That┬áis just one of the challenges of a blogger in this worldwide Internet audience. But it’s also part of the fun!


Facebook or MySpace?

May 7, 2008

If I wanted to do something for a group along the lines of a Facebook or MySpace, something where people could connect as friends, keep updated on the latest happenings for the group, which would be better? One of these or something else? Why do you like it best?

Building Business

April 26, 2008

I have been working on my first client’s site a great deal and am having a terrific time. Working on it doesn’t mean just writing and designing the site but also going out into the blogsphere to meet people/communties who would be apt to want to use their service. It is an interesting process to grow a community from scratch, building up traffic and hopefully inspiring them to go through the process to then buy the product…in this case, a fantastic cake to ship elsewhere.

My New Venture

March 4, 2008

Blogging is something I love to do, so I decided today to try to make it my business… and yours. I can help you market yourself — by creating a blog tailored to your needs, writing the content, maintaining/updating your blog as well as going out into the blogsphere to get to know your special niche community and help them get to know you. Blogs are an excellent communication tool with clients or suppliers, and we can use it to drum up new business.

Do you have any advice for me as a new entrepreneur — what to look out for, resources? I’d love to hear it.
