    Hi Sue Anne,
    I start getting obsessed with infographics and your wonderful guests posts are to blame;) The recent infographics from your website inspired me to create one for my garment upcycling site I published this week (was a pleasure to mention you there!).

    Daniel, thank you for the concise valuable information. Despite my blog is not a “business”, in the context of this article, I’m taking away very helpful insights I can implement.

    Thank you both!

    I couldn’t agree more! I am a huge believer in the power of blogging for my business (and since my business is Background Checks it is not always easy!). I would add one unexpected benefit ~ Blogging reignited a Passion for my Business! When I started blogging, I was feeling a bit disconnected from the business I had been running since 1996. Here it was, 2012, and it was getting stale. But once I started by blog and really honed in on my “why” and core values, I was suddenly feeling much more invested again!

    I agree with you, because recently i wrote a how to guide on media buying and expected nothing but visitors to that blog post. But, after few days it got indexed in Google, i got two clients who are asking me to help them setup their media buying campaign.

    It was really awesome because without paying for advertising i got 2 clients. That’t the power of blogging.

    Anyways nice infographic which explains everything..
