Are Blogging Yet? Are You Blogging Still?

Is blogging a "passing fad"? Has it run its course? Do you wonder whether it's worth the effort to keep putting your fingers to the keyboard? Do you wonder whether people read what you write? Okay, I've tossed a lot of questions out in one paragraph, but the bottom line is: Yes, you still need to be blogging and if, for some reason, you haven't started blogging yet, what are you waiting for?
Here are the top five (there are many more, but you need to stop reading and get writing) reasons you should be blogging:
- A blog, that is on your website, is the easiest way to drive traffic to your site. It's easier to write a blog post than it is to generate new content on your website, right?
- You're the expert in what you do and a blog is the best place to share that expertise.
Bottom line -- is about your bottom line -- a blog (depending on the platform you use) is free. In today's economy you can't beat free and when you use blogging as part of a targeted marketing campaign you will likely reap success!
Do you blog? Have you seen the benefits of it? Do you need to blog but just don't have the time or are faced with the "what do I write about" dilemma? There are blogging professionals that can help you get past all of that and get your blog up and running!
One of the screwiest parts for me is that there never were any "cowboys" in the romanticized sense from our TV and movie shows.

Unfortunately I'm in this situation as I missed my offer by two grades but am still being considered... Is there is a deadline by which the universities have to reply to those of us in limbo by? Thanks :)

I do indeed blog, and I encourage anyone who does also to look into Networked Blogs. When I post to my blog, Networked Blogs picks that up and auto-posts the title and link for me to my Twitter and Facebook accounts. (Maybe LinkedIn, too, but I can't remember. Shows how much I use LinkedIn.) It's a good way to have longer stories that you can tease via Twitter and Facebook (and other places).
