Sloths, Sex and Success: Get the Results You Really Want for Your Business Blog
New on the KOTAW blog! http://bit.ly/1ARLBt4

A blog is as important to the health of your business as exercise and proper diet are to your personal wellbeing.

But, if you’re like a lot of business owners, you hate writing blog posts as much as sloths detest jogging and carnivores despise kale.

So you slack off or give up. Then you feel bad about yourself and try again — harder this time. And fail again, also harder. 

Like a yo-yo dieter, your feast-and-famine approach to blogging never gets you the results you want.

It's time to end the guilt and increase productivity.

Stop flogging your blogging efforts and start rocking your blog instead.

Here are 5 tips to get you started on a less-stressful, more profitable approach to blogging:

1. Don’t Listen to Dental Hygienist-Style Advice

2. Don’t Jump Off the Blogging Advice Cliff

3. Make Your Blog as Good as Sex

4. Make Your Blog Posts Peer-less

5. Demand a Payoff from Your Blog

Find out what these things mean and why +Michael Bennett is succeeding at # 3 and +Tina Willis is rocking # 4 by reading on HERE: http://bit.ly/1ARLBt4

Story
Tagline
Reporter for smallbiztrends.com. Circles I go in: journalists, copywriting, writing, health foods, local brand events, PR, networking, Evernote, blogging, Android, #GTD, fascinated with media
Introduction
If you want to skip the long story, just go to my short summary. Long summary: "As a proponent of content marketing, my work revolves around brand galas and other promo events in New York City. If copywriters are sugarcubes and journalists are closer to ice cubes, then I'm like a Rubik's cube. My interaction with different verticals puts me in a colorful category of writers."

I'm not on Google+ to prospect - Whomever needs to find me finds me outside of Google+ anyway. I'm here to LEARN about tools mainly, and a little social media too. If you're into biz tools, we'll get along famously. Since getting active on Google+ in May 2013, I'm now a fan of social media communities and tribes. People power, basically. But in case you're curious I also help sites, brands, PR agencies, etc. I help smaller agencies (and not so small ones) navigate into PR 2.0 from old-school PR. See my other site, A Friend To PR Agencies, for more on that. The reason it exists: I believe in what Joe Pulizzi says about saying something new, not just saying something old in a new way. 

My non-tech interests are: health food (slow carbs, high fiber, etc), apartment/house solutions, music. 

As for my feelings on tech, I don't love tech. I like it because it helps the world, whether it's B2B or consumer tech. When people first meet me, they overestimate my tech skills, but the truth of the matter is, when people say I'm "good with tech", I laugh and correct them - I'm good with navigation after awhile, and therefore, usage. Big difference.  Whatever I'm using, I make the most of it. So that's the difference in a nutshell. To label me as "good with tech" can lead a person to infer, erroneously, that I'm some sort of fixit whiz or troubleshooting whiz - I'm not cut from that cloth.

I'm no meat aficionado but the food here was superb. IIRC I had a mini steak and two sides. One was asparagus with Hollandaise, the other was broiled tomatoes. I was so full I wanted to order the whiskey bread pudding but there was no room in my stomach. Excellent ambience. I dined in what looked like a large private room for a business meeting. This is a superb place to eat steak and good good food.

Most everything here is high fiber which makes ZP my go-to restaurant when I'm in the mood for fiber. The appetizer rolls known as autumn rolls have, if i remember correctly, julienned bamboo shoots and a red wrapper and then it's all deep-fried and served with a fresh transluscent red dipping sauce with the slightest zip of spice. so perfect and delicious. i suppose the name is a play on words alluding to spring rolls (the opposite, sort of). really delicious.
