Should You Have A News Section On Your Website?

Should You Have A News Section On Your Website? | You Call It Obsession & Obscure; I Call It Research & Important | Scoop.it

Recently Mike Lieberman advised folks to “go ahead and get rid of that ‘Company News’ section.” Lieberman wrote that in response to an analytical report compiled by Chris Scott of Headscape — more accurately, Lieberman gave his advice based on reading Paul Boag’s post about Scott’s report. To be fair, there is no readily available copy of Scott’s report. But that still doesn’t account for some errors in critical thinking.

UP to the DL: Blog Tours & Marketing Services

UP to the DL: Blog Tours & Marketing Services | You Call It Obsession & Obscure; I Call It Research & Important | Scoop.it

U.P. to the D.L. is the dynamic duo of Deanna Dahlsad & Laura Brown, two wordy grrls who met 10 years ago as columnists at (the now defunct) Backwash.com.

Of course, both had been writing and promoting online (and off) long before that time, so the slow demise of one site didn’t keep them from continuing to do what they do — or being friends. *wink*

Our latest joint projects are Inherited Values and Ululating Undulating Ungulate. (If you visit the sites and are interested in joining us there, please check out the “about” pages!)

Because of our years of experience in the Internet trenches, we’ve long been individually helping other writers, bloggers, artists, sellers, and entrepreneurs start-up or increase their online presence; now we’ve joined forces, offering you our firsthand knowledge and experience.

We offer specialized services, such as:

Blog Tours
Marketing Consultation
Website Reviews
Individualized & Customized Services Upon Request
Bloggers, you have brands too, so any of these services can be tailored to suit you!

Gracie Passette's curator insight, July 12, 2013 8:08 PM

Blogs are not dead, despite what you've heard. And this is great news for those working in the adult industry who are blocked from using Facebook and other giant sites. Click the links in the article for detailed info.

 

MartinSocially's curator insight, July 29, 2013 4:05 PM

The concept of individuals creating their own content will endure, platforms may come and go but the essence of origianal content is fundamental to the future of the internet and society as a whole.
