Of course every business should have a blog, as Zeldman quotes http://www.zeldman.com/daily/0305e.shtml The question isn't, "Should your business have a blog?" Of course your business should have a blog. The much more interesting question is, "Should your blog have a business?" Blogs are really good for SEO that's the main thing. Doesn't matter if no-one but the client ever reads it, google will be watching. Also, blogs are good for public relations in numerous ways on numerous levels. I'm also convinced that product update news should be published in blog format - people will move to receiving this via RSS rather than email updates. Blogs are also being extensively used in education for student personal reflective diaries. cheers -- Dr Stuart Young, +64 (0)9-815 4321 x 8656 <syoung at unitec.ac.nz> +64 021 183 2846 (mob) Lecturer, School of Computing and Information Technology, Unitec New Zealand, Auckland, New Zealand http://tinyurl.com/4956o (the official URL for my staffpage is too long and complex) http://www.pixelandgrain.co.nz/ Web development, graphic design and photography >>> headlemur at lemurzone.com 23/04/2005 03:56:49 >>> Over the last few days a number of you have indicated that business is getting better.
