Here are some guidelines to help you earn the respect and credibility you want as it relates to posting blogs:
Because we are a growing and distinctive internet community, it is important to remember the following guidelines when you post to your blog:
- Share your business ideas, ask for assistance and encourage others. That last one is important. A rule of thumb: For each blog you post, comment on 2-3 others’ blogs. The comments don’t have to lengthy; remember the focus here is to be an encouragement to help one another. (And besides, don't you love getting comments?)
- Refrain from blatant religious or political stuff. We want to keep our focus on business and entrepreneurship. True, sometimes these topics come up but we do not wish to detract from our primary focus.
- Raw business promotion. In email that’s called SPAM. Yes, let’s talk about your business and ideas to help it. But simply posting ads and links with no other community involvement will result in a deleted post.
- Blog well! Remember your blog is a reflection of you and your business. It takes time to learn how to figure the ropes out but we are confident that in time you’ll be blogging like a pro.
