    Thanks for this! We are just starting a new blog and really want it to take off. Have you ever worked with anyone who was in the health or mental health field? We are trying to look into the ethical implications of writing a blog. It’s not as if I’m just a person out their writing my opinion… Well, I am, but I also have to consider that I am responsible to the state for what I say as a Counselor Resident. Anyways, very helpful. Thanks, again!!

      Nikki you are right in that there are certain industries such as healthcare and financial that have strict rules around what interactions you can have directly with customers via social media and other online communications. It’s best to do your homework, as you said.

    the article on how to start a blog was really helpful. thank you for this. I also include that in starting a blog , the topic should catches the readers attention. they really want the whole story to be read in the first paragraph they see or from the title. that’s all I could add up cause I was always reading blogs.

    Hey Mack,

    Just wanted to tell you what a great post you’ve got here. It can be really difficult to start a blog in the beginning and hard to tell where to actually begin. Thanks for making blogging easier for our growing community.

    You always have to have a call to action. The goal is not to just make a point, but to make a difference. Every blog or article needs to have points that it makes, but without a call to action it cannot make a difference. A point loads the gun—a call to action fires it.

    Thanks for your post. I have just started to write a blog and your information will be useful. Perhaps the most important point to consider before writing a blog post is to consider are you really passionate about blogging and do you have enough knowledge about what you are blogging.
