«Return to Blog List 12 Reasons Businesses Should NOT Blog
Last week we posted 7 reasons for businesses to blog. We’re big supporters of blogging as a low-cost, high-effect means for companies to engage their market.
But we recognize not for everyone is cut out to be a blogger. If any of the statements below apply to you, you probably should not blog, at least not for business purposes.
- You’re so busy writing orders and making trips to the bank to deposit money, you don’t have time to blog.
- You have no expertise in anything that anyone would be interested in. (Twitter might be a more suitable platform.)
- You’re illiterate. (Actually, we’re not sure this is a good reason.)
- You try to avoid walking within 10 feet of a computer without your tinfoil hat on.
- There’s a ghost in your computer who gets angry and zaps you when you touch the keyboard.
- Every time you try to write, it reminds you of when your third-grade teacher intercepted your love note to the little girl behind you and read it to the whole class, correcting your grammar and punctuation.
- You have a rare form of Tourette’s Syndrome that manifests itself in your writing.
- You’re not interested in any form of marketing that doesn’t give you a shot at an Addy award.
- You’re in the witness protection program and you need to keep a low profile.
- Your website is in the witness protection program and you’d prefer it didn’t attract attention.
- You told your mother you’re a piano player in a whorehouse and you don’t want her to be disappointed when she finds out you’re a blogger.
- You refuse to participate in any activity that doesn’t have a proper name. “Blogging” indeed!
