Merry Christmas Eve everyone! This time of the year is typically spent reflecting on the past year--our experiences, our businesses and our loved ones (not necessarily in that order).

How does YOUR Blogging Voice Sound? - 12/23/11 07:09 PM
We all enjoy reading informative posts--especially when they’re focused on a topic for which we are searching. We tend to enjoy a connection between the writer when we’re fully agreeing with something or sometimes, for whatever reason, we may get the feeling that we just don’t ‘understand’ that particular writer. The consumer is the exact same way--they go by the ‘tone’ and style of your writing as well as the content that you provide them within any given article, blog or website. Here are some pointers that I’ve gathered from discussions with clients who have found me or my firm online: (32 comments)
