Welcome to my Blog

What do you post to your first entry for a daily blog? Well, briefly, let me tell you why I decided to launch this blog.

Recently, I attended a Microsoft Live Meeting sponsored webinar entitled "Blogging For Business." It was presented by Jim Coudal of Coudal Partners and Anil Dash of Six Apart. It was a well spent one hour of interactive discussions on the merits of blogging

For those of you who are late adopters of this form of communication, I'll share some links below with resources to help you get started

Remember, it is important to have relevant and current content. Market or promote your blog by trading links ... use a lot of outbound links.
