The King is Dead; Long Live the King!

Today I attended three-hour seminar that offered ideas on using social media to build your business. But the emphasis was primarily on Facebook, especially during the first two hours. The seminar was informative and helpful. But to me what was conspicuous by its absence was blogging! It was mentioned maybe three times, and only in passing. Yet, at least six times during the presentation the importance of “content” was emphasized and the role content plays in social media. (By the bye, of the approximately 20 attendees, three had a blog.)

Content? Of all the social media, which is the most content rich and content friendly?

The blog.

So blog on! (And get a team of like minded people to help and support you.)

Your thoughts?
