Blogs & Condos


Was talking to some friends who told me they liked my new "website." "It's a blog," said I. They nodded politely and went on with the conversation. Now I know how people who own condos feel when people refer to their homes as apartments.

Just wanted to let you know I researched your blog heavily before we launched our blog. In fact this was the first post I reviewed to assist in crafting a launch post. I thought it was fitting to thank you on this post.

Keep it up. I follow your posting and hope to have a silver of the blogging success you have captured.

Thanks for your very kind words they made my day.

May I give you a bloggy suggestion or two? First, when you drop a comment, even one as nice as yours, instead of leaving the name of your company as your "name" use your own. The heart of social media is the people-to-people connection and needless to say, it's difficult to build those "corner grocery store relationships" with an organization.

Second, follow that through to your blog posts. I noticed that posts are signed "GMI BlogAdminG." Once again, not the best way to foster relationships that might move to the next stage. I would suggest that there be an "About The Blogger/s" link that introduces the blogger or bloggers.
