Blogging for Business Tips
WordPress.org (self-hosted) is recommended for your website, (not WordPress.com)
Your site should be self-hosted so you can have unlimited control over it.
Focus on blog posts that will get people towards your goals.
Have at least one image in every article to be visually appealing and break up blocks of text.
If you send an email to your list about a blog article, give them a teaser - they need a good reason to click through and read the post.
Video is huge in blogging right now. If you prefer to create videos or podcasts, do that and just create show notes as your blog posts.
