10 Reasons Why I “Heart” My Blog
I do love my blog! I’m happy it’s there when inspiration strikes. Over time, I’ve come to appreciate the many benefits it provides to me personally and to my business. Clients and prospects often ask me if they HAVE to have a blog. Well no one has to. But I thought I’d share a few reasons why they may want to. I look forward to hearing why you love your blog!
To reflect how I’ve come to feel about blogging, here’s the beautiful song, “Love and Passion” sung by its composer Milton Nascimento (also heard a few posts ago) in duet with the wonderful Sarah Vaughan from her album “Brazilian Romance”. Please enjoy listening!
I love my blog because:
It’s a creative outlet. For someone whose career is based on providing creativity for others, it’s strangely pleasurable to be creative on my own behalf.
It’s a chance to get ideas out of my head and into the air where others can help either confirm or deny their validity.
It’s a place to share my passions for language, marketing and music.
It helps me educate my clients and prospects so that they can better understand how what I provide can benefit them.
It’s an opportunity to reveal a more playful side of myself than in a traditional business setting.
It does wonders for my SERP visibility. For some search terms my blog helps me dominate page one, two and three results!
It helps me think about past experiences – business and personal — and put them to work in a present or future context.
It brings people into my life who I might never have met otherwise.
It imposes a certain discipline on my own marketing.
It constantly surprises me and makes me smile!!
At the risk of this sounding like a premature New Year’s resolution, think I’ll give my blog even more love in the coming year.
