Paul Fix: The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it’s unfamiliar territory.
I recently became involved in a Facebook group made up of bloggers. All we talk about is blogs, topics for blogs, dates to publish blogs, how to find more readers for blogs, what you’re doing if you don’t blog, why you blog, what your blog means, how often you blog, comparing blogs, reading others’ blogs, and improving your blog.
It’s blogs, blogs, and more blogs.
And I love it!
Some of the members of this group work a direct sales business from home and don’t have another full-time job outside of the home. Some work full-time in another field (like me) and find a little bit of time each day or each week to write something fun or meaningful.
Did you know that, as of April 2017, there are 345 million blogs written? 52% of U.S. small businesses use social media to promote their businesses. Small businesses that blog get 126% more lead growth than small businesses that do not blog. 81% of companies consider their blogs “useful,” “important,” or “critical.” 61% of U.S. online consumers have made a purchase based on recommendations from a blog. 23% of total Internet usage time is devoted to social networks or blogs. Blogs are big business for big and small businesses…and individuals too.
I’ve said this before. I’m grateful to you who read this. When you comment here on WordPress, I’m putting your name in a hat for a drawing on May 31. One of you is commenting nearly every day and she seems to be in the lead. So get your fingers busy and let me know what you think of my posts.
And if you have any friends who may be interested in reading my incredibly thoughtful words, please share.
