That’s how you’re supposed to start these things, isn’t it?
After writing literally hundreds of blog posts for other people, I decided it was about time I started my own.
I thought I’d start by telling you a little about my experience, and what I have in mind for the blog.
I started my own business way back in the 1990s, running business networking events. The business didn’t work in the end as I didn’t know enough about either running a business or how to market it. It was, however, a brilliant experience that I wouldn’t swap for anything. I learned a heck of a lot, and met some amazing people.
The networking events were fun, too!
I worked for other people for a while, doing admin and then technical writing, before deciding to take the plunge on my own again in 2013 with freelance writing.
So that’s a little about me, but what can you expect from the blog?
I’ll be posting about how to get the most out of any writing you use for your business, whether you do it yourself or hire someone in.
I’ll also be talking about SEO, WordPress, social media, content marketing, and business in general, and finding you the best resources, apps, tools and tips I can to help your business move forward faster.
That’s it for now.
Settle back with a cup of your favourite beverage, and I’ll be posting soon on topics to help you grow your blog and your business.
