Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Enter the Blogosphere…

So, I had a meeting with my web developer.

I like to call him, Satan.

Satan asks me, "Don’t you have a weblog?" He adds just the right amount of sarcasm and pretentiousness to his rhetorical questions to boil my blood.

Now, I have heard of Lincoln logs, yule logs, and even cheese logs (which are delicious), but I never heard of a weblog.

Satan must have read the clueless desperation that was being etched across my face like an emotional Rosetta Stone. He raised his eyebrow, the one that goes across both eyes, and asked, "Don’t tell me you don’t know what a blog is?"

"Oh! Of course. A blog!" I said. Still. No clue whatsoever.

"You know. Little diaries on the web." He said in a tone that reminded me briefly of how I used to get my two-year old to each mashed peas.

"You have to have one!" he said. Satan then explained some of the benefits of blogging. Exposure… blah blah blah. Search Engine Traffic… blah blah blah… Customer loyalty…

And, so, I conned… errrr… I convinced the people at Startup Nation to hook me up with a weblog, or blog, or little diary on the web so I can tell you what I’m up to, talk about small businesses, in general, and, maybe even gripe a little (who, me?) about some of my small business pet peeves.

And, remember, as Thomas Edison said, "Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration."

Imagine what the Nobel Prize ceremony smells like.
