I was at a charity networking event where the guest speaker was Jenny Agutter, talking about leading men. I caught up with her during a break to tell her I’d received an email from Richard E Grant, complaining about something I’d written on my blog about one of his films. “Would he really do a thing like that?” I asked her. “Oh yes,” she said.
Another time, I critiqued the TV ad for a distance learning organisation. As a result, they wrote and asked me to edit their joining instructions.
You just never know who’s reading your blog!
Static websites are becoming less effective, while blogs are on their way up. One reason is because search engines like fresh content. The other is because human site visitors like it too – they can add comments (if allowed), and they can share your useful content on their social media networks. That’s why blogging should be the first thing you consider after (or even instead of) setting up your website.
