To blog or not to blog

Social Media’s full meal deal

That’s a question some my ask when there’s so much buzz about Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and other social media platforms. It’s easy to overlook blogging as a means of digital communications.

But before you dismiss blogging as old school and “so 2005,” consider these thoughts:

“In one sense, (blogs have) become the equivalent of a social media full meal.” – Elisa Carnahort, Mashable.com

“Committing to this blog is one of the best professional decisions I’ve made.” – Gabriel Weinberg

“When it comes to blogging, the process of making sales is not nearly as complicated as we sometimes make it.” – Marcus Sheridan, Social Media Examiner

“If you’re not blogging, you’re missing out on some important business benefits.” – Patricia Redsicker, Social Media Today

“When high quality content is consistently produced, a blog can engage, connect and enrich you, your business and your readers.” – Craig Klein, Sales Nexus

That’s just a sampling of professionals who believe a blog is an important part of any digital communications or marketing strategy.
