The Business of Blogging

One of the focuses of my new business is to work with newer, small businesses to help them to learn how blogging can help them to develop and establish a brand, help with SEO and page rankings, and can help to establish the blogger/company as an expert in their field.  With that as my focus, you can believe that I read a lot of small business, women in business and blogging blogs.

Today I read an awesome post in Lip-Sticking about the Behemoth that Blogged.   Basically it’s a simple story of how blogging can not help your business to change your public face if you’ve gone out of your way to leave a bad taste in the publics mouth.  It does a little comparison between the dreaded Wal-Mart and the fantastic Target (no, there’s no need for me to be impartial here).  She’s got some great, yet simple thoughts regarding blogging, Wal-Mart and Target.  It’s a quick and easy read.

And in case you’re wondering, no, this blog is not any sort of business blog.  I blog here purely as a personal blog, an outlet to be heard.  I don’t follow any sort of rules (or SEO guidelines) that I recommend for my clients.  I’d rather remain anonymous and avoid the search engines for this sort of blogging.  Heck, it’s all just for fun here at My LA Blog!! 😉

    Thanks for sharing Lip-Sticking’s post. It was a quick, easy read and I liked what she had to say. So any thoughts for an aspiring author and her brand/blog?
