I Blog, Therefore I Am?

Blog Link

So welcome to my very first blog entry. At my Lake Arrowhead advertising and public relations firm, Mountain Marketing Group, lately I’ve been the Pied Piper of social media, sharing the importance of setting up blogs and the like. But, like the cobbler’s kids who do not have shoes, I have failed to consistently create dynamic content of my own.

Aren’t you glad that is about to change? I’m sure I have lots of important ideas to share and links to provide. I just have to get the hang of this thing first.

In all honesty, this isn’t actually the first time I’ve tried to blog. I just didn’t realize, previously, that all of the great blogs I was writing on my own website were not being seen by anyone.

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, did it really fall? So, sure, no one read what I wrote. But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t valuable and important. Right?

Lately, with the economy in the toilet, the thing at the top of business owners’ minds is how to make a living. First, the good news. It is still possible to make money despite the economy. After all, it isn’t as if all of the cash in the universe spontaneously combusted. It’s just that no one knows exactly where it is. As a marketing and public relations professional, it’s my job to answer that question for my clients.

So my tip for the day is to encourage my clients to do as I do, not as I say. This message is for you:

Dave-Give us some tips to keep our hair under control in the wind.

David-You can’t find a photo of yourself smiling? Or at least not frowning?

Chris-Let us know how to put together a notebook with decorating ideas

Scott and Dave-You guys are already pros. But why not share some of your expertise with your client-base? Give us a boon.

Creating a blog is obviously quite easy. Even a marketing director can do it.
