Cowtown Netweavers 08.31.2011

Today was a special day at Cowtown Netweavers.  It marks a 1-year Anniversary for me serving as  Board Member for the group!  It has been an incredible experience and I have loved every minute of it.  However, as I move forward in trying to really grow my business, I have come to realize that I can no longer serve in this position and must resign.  I must tell you that it was hard to do, but sometimes we have to refocus are ventures elsewhere!

************************************************************

The topic discussed today was Blogs.  A very interesting topic because it is something I enjoy doing…not only for the benefit of education and helping others, but because I enjoy writing.  I am going to recap today’s meeting highlights:

Blog = web & log to become the term blog

Key Elements needed in a blog:

  • title = attention getting
  • body = 300-500 words, key words that need to be written in it 2-4x’s
  • tag = what the blog is about
Reasons to blog:
  • increase ranks on Google
  • make yourself known as an expert
  • increase awareness on a topic
Do you blog?  Do you enjoy blogging?  How often do you blog?  Any comments or suggestions to my fellow networking friends & colleagues?

Do you let others hinder your plan?

Today, I will take a path different then the normal blog post and am going to write a personal story on my blog…one that I hope will encourage you to be you and follow the direction of giving out of a pure heart to help others. I have been attending networking groups for a yearContinue Reading
