Reviving BusinessBlogConsulting.com

Posted by: of ExecutiveSummary.com on 07/31/05

tA couple of months ago, I announced "my semi-retirement from this blog." Some took that as my "retirement from blogging" (what are Bruner Blog and Executive Summary, chopped liver?)

But it turns out, it hasn’t stuck anyway: I’m back. I got a number of kind emails and comments giving me the sense that this site was perhaps more popular than I thought. Then  Paul Chaney of Radiant Marketing proposed I turn the site into a big group blog on the topic of business blogs and related issues. Sounded good to me, so the following folks have all just been deputized to blog here:

La Shawn Barber of The Language Artist
Toby Bloomberg of Diva Marketing
Bob Bly of Bly Blog
Steve Broback of Avondale Media
Rich Brooks of Flyte
DL Byron of Textura Design
Paul Chaney of Radiant Marketing
Henry Copeland of BlogAds
Jill Fallon of Estate Vaults
Josh Hallett of Hyku
Kevin Holland of Air Conditioning Contractors of America
Wayne Hurlbert of Blog Business World
Tris Hussey of Larix Consulting
John Jantsch of Duct Tape Marketing
BL Ochman of What’s Next Online
Michele Miller of Wonder Branding
Lee Odden of Top Rank Results
Steve Rubel of Micro Persuasion
Todd Sattersten of A Penny For…
Stephan Spencer of Netconcepts
Dave Taylor of Intuitive Life for Business

James Turner of One by One Media

Dana VanDen Heuvel of BlogSavant
Des Walsh of Thinking Home Business
Debbie Weil of WordBiz and BlogWrite

Andy Wibbels
of Easy Bake Weblogs

Jeremy Wright of Ensight

  • Stay on-topic: the role of blogs in business communications and marketing
  • First and foremost, I see the value of this site being a directory for news and advice on business blogging. Please help the site stay on top of relevant articles in the mainstream press or greater blogsophere. Working as a large group we should have no excuse to miss anything.
  • Long-winded treatises on business philosphy, not so much.
  • Profiling good (or particularly bad) examples of business blogs is another focus. But there are a lot business blogs out there now. We don’t need to catalog every one, just the particularly noteworthy ones
  • No blatant self-promotion
  • Use the "extended body" field for longer posts. Keep the homepage scannable.
  • Use the categories
  • Blog for good, not for evil

Well, it will be interesting to see how this phase of BusinessBlogConsulting pans out.

  1. Good to see you back. It would be good to a post by you and get all those people to debate in the comments.

  2. Scoble takes a break, Jeremy culls the A-list. Is the blogging paradigm shifting?

  4. La Shawn Barber’s site has been spelled incorrectly.

  5. Thanks. That looked pretty silly, considering the name of the site.

  6. A New Paradigm for Business Blog Consulting?

    Having spent fifteen years or so as a consultant, I can say (ok, somewhat tongue in cheek) that consultants can be a pretty individualistic, opinionated, sometimes jealous lot. It probably goes with the territory – we are presenting ourselves as, in so…

  7. Business Blogs

    Rick Bruner’s Business Blog Consulting used to be a regular stop for me for its news, tips and insight into business blogs. It fell off my blogroll a while back when Rick accepted a new position and put the site into “semi-retirement.&#822…

  8. Consult The A-List

    I’m reminded of the “Think Tanks” of the 80′s where some of the best and brightest worked on secret projects and produced the very cutting edge of technology and advancements. I have been allowed and have humbly entered into a…

  10. [...] I must be the luckiest boy in the whole wide world! About six months ago, after briefly retiring from this blog, I relaunched this site as a group blog. With the help of Paul Chaney, I assembled a crack team of co-bloggers, and those of you who read this blog regularly know that the result has been one of the best resources on the topic of using blogs in a business and marketing capacity out there, if I do say so myself.
