Blog Conferences for Business

Blog Conferences for Business

This Friday and Saturday I’ll be attending a local blog conference, BlogWest. Now I’ll admit there is a large personal element for ME in attending this conference, but I also recognize how truly beneficial it can be to small business owners or solopreneurs to attend these types of events. Following the hashtag for the conference on Twitter (#blogwest) might make one think these events are for mom bloggers more than anyone. So not...

Blawger Survivor Finale

Blawger Survivor Finale

This is officially my last post as part of the Blawger Survivor challenge and I am so excited to have been able to get a post in every single weekday the last three weeks.

So far it has been a great reminder of how useful and interesting blogging can be. And I have read some wonderful posts from the other entrants in the contest.

Blawger Survivor

I have not been great about posting on this blog lately! It’s good in a sense, because I’ve been busy actually being a virtual legal assistant, not posting about it!! Still this blog was one of the first things I did for my business and it is a valuable tool well worth spending my time on, so I’m taking up the Blawger Survivor Challenge for the next three weeks and hopefully I’ll be able to post every weekday during the...
