Are you blogging just to have things to publish on social media, or because you have important things to share with your readers?


If it's the former, you might want to rethink your strategy. Blogging just for the sake of blogging can get ugly pretty quickly - making viral headlines and "keywordifying" your content just to get some SEO and social media visibility isn't the way to form real relationships and get business. 


Instead of blogging just to blog, why not blog when you have meaningful, important ideas that matter to share, and supplement the rest with curated content?

Building Real Software: Agile - What’s a Manager to Do? | Agile Project Management | Scoop.it

Project managers must embrace Agile Methodologies and even change their role in the value chain of the company.
