  1. Great list of resources, it will take me some time to read them all! Thanks for picking up my Bloggertone article, warm regards, Niall

  2. As far as blogging goes, WordPress should be an option that every business owner should seriously consider when building or redesigning their website.

    As easy as WordPress.com is, I think that for the sake of more control and customization, business owners should consider finding a suitable host and run the free WordPress install from WordPress.org. Many of the bigger hosts now have automated WordPress installs that take less than 5 minutes to install.

    Thanks for a great post.

  3. Indeed, just like medium and large businesses have ramped up their online presence with business blogs, scores of small businesses and online entrepreneurs too are taking to regular blogging. Why should small businesses miss out on it? Having said that, now small businesses can avail group deals that were earlier just made available to large businesses. Huddlebuy offers great group deals for small business communities in UK. Anyways thanks for the post!
