Here's a post from a Blogmutt writer... about... Blogmutt. It gets even more "meta" because it's a guest post, of sorts, about the guest posts that Blogmutt has appeared in recently. Anyway, I'll let the post speak for itself. - Scott
In recent weeks there has been a hum about Blogmutt, and it's getting louder. Blogmutt, the business blogging service, has had three great opportunities for guest posts this month.
The first of the three came from Blogmutt CEO Scott Yates, who writes about the "landscaping" of social media. Scott analogizes a business' web presence to a homeowner's yard, writing, "Social media and the web is the outward appearance of your business to potential customers, just as landscaping is the outward appearance of a home." Yates suggests homeowners, or businesses, "hire someone who’s good at mowing grass, pay them a fair price, and call it done." A blog writing service like Blogmutt allows customers to focus on what they do best, and let the writers do the writing.
Scott wrote another of the three Blogmutt guest posts, this time for Startup America. The post outlines three must-do tips to make your startup work, each followed by a must-not-do counterpart. Yates asserts that entrepreneurs should go it alone, and unless your team is "equally willing to throw everything into your startup, just go ahead and do what you want to do alone." On the other hand, Yates points out that every CEO needs mentors. "Working in a vacuum," as he calls it, will get you nowhere.
The final post in this trio comes from an allstar of the Blogmutt crowd, Ruth Bremer. Bremer writes about how crowdsourcing a blog writing service is a win-win situation. Business owners win because they "gain access to an entire team of writers working hard to come up with blog posts just for them." Bremer writes that she -- as a writer -- also wins, because "the crowdsourcing model provides a unique opportunity to do something I enjoy and improve my skills without giving up flexibility." Because the rest of the crowd is also providing blog content, no one person has a deadline.
Blogmutt is a win-win for writers and customers, and it's really beginning to catch on. With more buzz in the air than ever, the numbers are all moving up and to the right. Is it time for you to come see what all the fuss is about?
I spent years as a writer and editor, and wrote a nonfiction book before starting BlogMutt with Wade back in 2011. I love words, and I love working with the amazing staff and dedicated writers of BlogMutt who also love words, and know the power that they have. Also, this quote: "I love deadlines," Douglas Adams said. "I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by."
