First of all, just in case you are new to the game, let me define a blog. A blog is a web page (or blog platform such as WordPress) made up of short, frequently updated posts that are typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first).
Blogs are a tool for communicating with customers or employees to share knowledge and expertise.

Here are my top 9 reasons why you should blog:

1. Get your name/business name out on the internet – SEO
2. Express your thoughts and opinions
3. Market/promote something
4. Establish yourself as an expert
5. Connect with people
6. Stay knowledgeable in you field
7. Tell YOUR story
8. Communicate tips and recommendations
9. Improve searchability (through RSS feeds)

What are your top reasons for blogging?
