The almighty blog...
Posted: 2nd Sep 2012
Know this or fail.
Before I dig my own grave here, there is just a few things I need to address and confirm that I am most aware of, and perhaps should pertain to more regularly;
1 - Blogs are invaluable for creating connections with customers, peers, general public.
2 - You can get your mitts on some SEO goodness.
3 - Accessibly showcase your chosen talent, skill or opinion.
4 - Millions of other previously over-blogged reasons.
These well-rounded points are not my 'beef' with blogs. With far too often proclaims of being bogged down with work and promises of regular posts, I'm guilty of neglecting my wee blog pal. It's not the blogs that rattle me it's the bloggers, the constant to-do and not-to-do lists of things you MUST abide by to be a successful and valid creative, of any means or field.
Rants are beautiful things but here mine ends, as to anyone who reads this will nod in silent agreement. For me it's simple, Yes, I do need to blog more, and yes, I do know why and what to do, but I also know how to naturally communicate with folk. Whether I want to talk about recent inspirations, projects or simply my experimentation with a new brand of teabag, these things are ok to talk about through any medium.
So to one and all, use what you need to when you want to. Pop on Twitter, Foursquare it or get KILTR-ed up, just talk like a person who loves what they do and folk will respond and enjoy.
COMING SOON - New blog posts.
