The Blog Rocks Baby!
This infographic above is from Scott Monty's excellent blog. It's an awesome look at some of the best marketing blogs, but it is also a stunning reminder of just how huge the business of blogging has become. I thought about this because this month marks my 2nd year with this site. It has been a great ride: getting to know other bloggers; attending events with respected voices in the field; connecting with those who follow and support my work; and figuring out what topics to tackle and ideas to conceptualize.
Last week I had the pleasure of being on a panel with four esteemed bloggers: Chris Pirillo, Cassandra Lavalle, Sally Farhat Kassab, and Jenni Hogan. The event was organized by Seattle entrepreneur Kim Staninger and her firm Epio Solutions. It was a spirited exchange that addressed how businesses can pitch to bloggers. That we are even now talking about "enterprise and blogging" is a huge victory. It is exciting to know that bloggers have real staying power, and have great respect in every corner of the world.
