I got in the shower this morning thinking, what am I going to blog about?? My life is not all that interesting. Then again, I am launching a new business The Write Rainmaker so there's a lot going on in my world.
[BTW, if you are on Facebook, please go to The Facebook page and click LIKE. Thanks!]
It's exciting and scary at the same time.
I've been writing for attorneys since 1985, but mostly work product - pleadings, letters, summaries of information. Most folks don't realize the sheer volume of information in lawsuits. I've gathered records from third parties, bates labeled thousands of pages, organized them, summarized them, etc. Actual "legal research" is only a fraction of what goes into most cases.
Attorneys are [usually] really good at practicing law. They usually need help with marketing. The younger ones seem to intuitively know the value of it more than the older ones, which is to be expected.
However, if my mother, who is almost 80, can blog, I can prove that "old dogs CAN learn new tricks."
I can also write blogs and website materials for non-attorneys, too.
Here's an excerpt from a message I sent to some of my friends who have small businesses:
Whatever your business, whether it’s making cupcakes, selling flowers, or selling a service like fixing computers, I can help increase your business by writing a blog for you. The more your website shows up in a Google search, the more folks will want what you’re selling. So if I blog for you once a week, you’ll get a lot more hits than if I blog for you once a month. If I Tweet about your blogs to your followers, you will get more business. Everything is about how much your business is on the internet now.
Now back to really important stuff: FOOD. We had some Aidell's bacon and pineapple sausages last night and WOW. SO so yummy. Our usual Sunday night grilled cheese dinner was really nice with the addition of the sausages. All the Aidell's products I've tried are wonderful. [No, they don't pay me to say that, either.] I pop some of those on the little George Foreman grill and less than 5 minutes later they are ready to go.
Made Michael some yummy breakfast cereal and let HIM mix it up, so he WILL eat it, I am sure. It's just a block of cream cheese [softened] plus a cup or so of vanilla yogurt, a carton of fresh blueberries, oatmeal, and some cinnamon and sugar. He will eat a ton of that and it's healthy for him.
The high today is in the upper 50's, so a typical end of January day in Hot-Lanta.
Have a great Monday y'all!
