Blogging Untangled

This was the third think tank WiSE has hosted on social media this year. Once again it was a great opportunity for business women to gather to discuss this still relatively new medium. WiSE think tanks allow for open discussion, comment and support for topics of current interest.

Social media has been a hot topic for sometime now. However it remains a challenge for many business owners for various reasons. Last night’s think tank untangled the preparation work involved in establishing and maintaining a blog.

Many resources, ideas and strategies were shared in our conversations on blogging. Here are some of the comments from the evening:

“Love the format!” “Thanks for sharing such great information.”

“What a lovely group of business women.”

“Great ideas shared on where and how to source blog content”.

“Thanks for showcasing how to take the sense of overwhelm out of blogging.”
