Thoughtful posts are great. Ones that summarize an industry or guess at the future. They make you go “huh…” or “what if….”, which is a great way to think. Opens up the mind, exposes you to new ideas. BUT, sometimes, I like the other type of post: an actionable, nuts and bolts piece. Something you […]
Who Should Blog and Why?
