“IT’S DEPENDENT ON THE STARTUP
Blogging can be a great tool if the startup has a lot of education associated with it or has an audience that reads a lot of content of a longer form.

If no one really wants to write it, it will end up neglected.” The idea is from Caitlin McCabe (Founder of Real Bullets Branding)
IT’S A TIME KILLER!
My experience has been that because there are now millions of blogs, their impact has gone down significantly. If you enjoy blogging as a hobby, go at it. But as a business strategy, it will take a lot of energy and hours of your time before it can scratch the service of making an impact. There are so many other effective ways to grow your business. Why blog? This one is shared by Raoul Davis (CEO-Ascendant Group)”
