Blogaholic? Hmmmm. I had all good intentions of writing a post about how I don't have time to write posts on this blog because I launched too many other blogs, but now thanks to ADD, I am off to design a Blogaholic T Shirt...
I promise, I'll be back. New Years resolutions and such. This blog is important to me.
I have been reading Difference Makers for a couple of weeks now and wanted to share the latest post from this well written blog.
We're taking an emergency trip to visit with one of the most influential Difference Makers that has ever impacted my life. He is a man of modest means with a generous spirit. He is man of unyielding principle, but gentle in every respect.
His life is a classic American story. His mother was an immigrant from Czechoslovakia at age 17. She raised eight children on a very meger income. Some of his siblings were raised in foster homes. He is the youngest of the eight; the baby of the family.
As a young man he learned the value of hard work. This training provided him the fortitude to complete his college education while still holding down a full-time teaching job at a vocational school. In addition, he operated a part-time home improvement business in the evenings and on Saturdays.
He was and is a faithful husband. His first wife passed away in 1994 after 43 years of marriage. The following year, he met a lady that has complemented his life for the past 9 years. During his first marriage, he not only met the needs of his job, part-time business and church responsibilities, but cared for his ailing wife for a period of over 10 years.
He is the epitome of character. His word is his bond. His life is an example of consistency and constancy. Faithfulness and selflessness characterize his service to his home, church and community.
All this to say I am going to spend some precious time with my dad. No business, job or earthly good comes close to the value this man has added to my life. He is a Difference Maker...
People are just starting to realize the power of blogging as it relates to small business marketing. My friend over at QuixtarBlog was the first person to make me aware of the potential. Since that time I have started and stopped a number of blogs as I learn about this unique and interesting way to connect with potential customers.
Search engine optimization experts are often seen as roughly divided into two camps, regarding the relative importance of links and content.
Some experts recommend employing a powerful linking strategy to boost a blog in the search engine results pages (SERPs). The other theorists suggest that keyword rich content is king in the quest for high search engine rankings.
A third concept suggests, that both content and linking strategies are equally essential, to achieving top positions in the SERPs.
That idea is more likely the best one for most bloggers to employ.
Blogs are good for business, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates has said.
In a speech to an audience of chief executives, Mr Gates said the regularly updated journals, or blogs, could be a good way for firms to tell customers, staff and partners what they are doing.
He said blogs had advantages over other, older ways of communicating such as e-mail and websites.
We got linked from Coolio's Weblog. It looks like we made Flip's daily Blogwatch, which is pretty cool. Coolio's Weblog is a fun Blog dedicated to linking . By the looks of the traffic, quite popular also.
