I'm pretty enthusiastic about blogging, but it isn't for everyone. The best use of a blog for a business, like mine, is to build credibility. That's done by exposure, so I keep this blog public. I want people to find me, to read about software training, caricatures, or cartooning. Maybe they will hire me, or order some cartoons. I have this blog on Blogger because it indexes so fast on Google.
Blogging, like having a website, is about public exposure. It's the modern "storefront" on main street. If you wanted to sell fish in medieval England, you pushed your cart down the main street and shouted. That's what all this blogging, and tweeting, is all about. This is, of course, in addition to all of the regular customers, and word-of-mouth referrals you are getting. If you are busy as you can be, there is no reason to blog, tweet, or even have a website. If you have a backlog of orders to fill, you really don't have time to expand your market. In fact, it's better that you get those orders out.
If you would like to get personal on-site software training in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator or Dreamweaver in the greater Phoenix, Arizona area, please contact me. Yes, I will also do a training session on setting up your blog on Google Blogger! Paypal accepted, morning appointments only.
