Let’s Blog

blog-3Businesses should relate to their customers in ways that show that they are all human as well. There are ways to do this through paths that have been spoken about on here. Some ways to reach out to the public is through social media, public events, and writing blogs to help with products, company events and milestones, and things that take place in the employees’ lives.

Let’s take a look at Microsoft. They have a blog that talks about the new things that are happening at the company including product development and product updates. Having the up-to-date information on the company and the product updates give a inside look at the company for those that read the blog.

There are other types of businesses that can, should, and have utilized blogging as a form of communication with customers. One type of business is the publication industry. Wired Magazine has a section of their website dedicated to a list of blogs that are written by employees of the company. Not only do they place articles on their website and in their magazine but they also publicize the personal writings of their own writers, editors, and employees. This gives customers a better connection with the employees of Wired Magazine and a personal touch to the company.

A Heart in Business

For those that have read my blog before today, you can probably deduct that I am once again changing around my blog as I have done multiple times since I began blogging. For those that are just starting to read now, welcome! Hopefully this shall be the last and final time that I completely change around my blog as I have finally be driven in the right direction of what exactly I want to do with this blog.

My love for community service has grown and evolved over the years. Now, it includes community service in the business world and in my personal life. Most people view community service as helping in soup kitchens, cleaning up trash, etc. but I view it in a different light. Through my experience I have learned that community service is also about helping businesses be self-sufficient and help the local economy. Community service is also about being a part of the local community. I have meshed these two together to create my brand that I believe embodies what my message about my beliefs is.

Now you may be asking, What exactly is her purpose for this blog now? This blog is a mix of personal posts to add to the local melting pot and professional posts that can potentially help businesses that are local or attempting growth or are looking to be self-sustaining with help in the IT department. The blog shall be laid out in different categories such as professional posts or personal posts. You may click on the category you want to view on the left hand side. There will also be times when I post a set of professional series on a certain topic that seems to be of interest to my readers.
