In this month’s email I shared some of the SMART Articles I’ve written about websites and blogging. The pieces on websites emphasize the importance of mobile optimization (timely, given Google’s latest algorithm change), highlight the value of leveraging modern and state-of-the-art website building platforms and tools, and provide guidance on meeting the “need for speed.” They include:
- Website Upgrades: 5 Essential Considerations
- Website Builder Platforms: Best Options for Small Businesses
- Selecting Website Themes: A Guiding Framework
- Website Optimization: Testing Tools and Tips
Blogging has been around for 20 years – can you believe it? Unfortunately, a lot of people mistakenly believe that blogging today is the same as it was in 1995 and even 2005. It’s not! It has evolved into a vital dynamic capability that every website can benefit from. Here are some pieces that can help you better understand blogging and get started:
- Blogging is so Misunderstood: 8 Things Everyone Should Know
- A Comprehensive Beginner’s Blogging Guide
- Optimizing Blog Posts: 11 Essential Considerations

PS – Don’t forget I’ll be participating in Social Media Today’s Social Shake-Up in Atlanta June 9-10, as well as their Employee Advocacy Shake-Up on June 8. If you or someone you know would like to attend, contact us for a registration discount code.
PPS – I’m also looking forward to presenting a session on “Managing the Festival in the Cloud” at the 2015 Arts Festival Conference with Rick Bryant, the Executive Director of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts. You probably don’t need/want to go to the conference, but I highly recommend the Festival, which has been ranked as one of the best in the country! It’s July 8-12 in State College, PA.
