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!! 😉
