Do you want your message to be reached?

Do you want to market your business?

Do you want to be hear?

What else…..

So the answer is START A BLOG.

What is a Blog?

The word is a loose contraction of the term, "Web Log." A blog is at a minimum "a journal that is available on the web. The activity of updating a blog is "blogging" and someone who keeps a blog is a "blogger," .

What is Blogging?

Blogging offers the opportunity for people to tell the world what's on their minds, to share their passions, or to simply inform them of current events, no matter how uniquely focused. Or, to tell them what's going on in their business. A blog is a hybrid newsletter that keeps you and your contacts in touch with each other.

Who is Blogging?
To find out who's blogging in your field, do a search at Bloglines (http://www.bloglines.com) for some of the keywords that you use on your own web site.

How do I start?

Creating a blog requires special software that is available.
Among the most popular blogging applications in use today, are Blogger (http://www.blogger.com), Movable Type (http://www.movabletype.org/), and Type Pad (http://www.typepad.com/).

Further removing the need to know HTML, blogging software allows you to choose a template (which you can customize) that gives all of your messages a consistent look. This could help you in branding yourself.

As example, from the standardize blog background, you can change it to the other background which is can define your concept…more, you can add the application in your blog according to the specification of your interest.

Finally, blogs offer the ultimate opportunities for networking. The attitude among bloggers is that "we're all doing this together." So exchanging links with like-minded sites is the norm rather than the exception.

Also, a company called Blogrolling (http://www.blogrolling.com) makes it possible for people to link to you "on the fly." You get a small piece of javascript code from them, place it in your blog template, and when people come to your site, they can click on the "Blogroll Me" link, and they immediately add your link to their site.
A blog will never replace e-mail—on a purely personal level. But a blog will help you to reach a larger audience than you thought possible with opt-in e-mail. Whether you sell information products, candles, or baseball cards, you'll find folks in the blogging world who are seeking exactly what you have to offer.

For me at least, a blog has provided the quickest way to reach the largest number of people. And every one of them is interested in hearing what I have to say next.
