Blogging: Info, Stats, Tips, Trends, And Links

Blogs have been around since the late 1990s. In those days, blogging was primarily an effort undertaken by computer-savvy diarists seeking online amusement. Eventually, they’d become an important source of news and information on a range of topics from food and shopping to news and politics. Along the way, they also became an important way for small and big businesses to brand themselves online and offer direct communication with their customers.

It’s no mistake that Fortune 500 companies with plenty of name recognition, such as Starbucks, Marriott International, and Coca-Cola, maintain blogs. They provide yet another avenue for connecting with customers. A regularly updated blog will generate web traffic, get your name in front of potential clients, advertise your services, educate and inform your customers, and boost your rankings on search-engines such as Google and Bing.
