How to Find the Right Voice for Your Blog

If you want to make a blog into a success then it will need to meet at least some basic criteria. For one it will need to look good and work well on the majority of machines for instance. At the same time it will also be important that it provides useful information to ensure that it is worth the time spent reading it.

One of the most basic requirements of all though is that your blog reads well.

How and Why to Guest Post

It’s interesting that in the new age of  Google regulations on SEO and keywords, I’m still getting requests from people who want to link to completely unrelated sites, like payday loans or online college courses. I turn them down, of course. I do have my blog’s reputation to uphold! Read more

Why Don’t Software Companies Have Blogs?

I recently spent some time following software companies on Twitter (since we’re now focusing on serving the software industry, I thought it was a good idea!). I noticed something interesting. While most had sleek, appealing sites, only about one in 10 had a blog! What’s the reason?

My theory, based on what I’ve gleaned from existing software clients, is that software companies smaller ones, anyway tend to be run by a couple of programmers, and maybe an intern or two.  There’s simply no one to write the content for the blog. Or the founder tries to provide the content and either doesn’t have time, or focuses on technical topics that only his team cares about.

Am I striking a nerve here? Read more
