Carol Krishner's story reinforces that bloggers are the nicest people. From the friend who encouraged Carol to blog to the bloggers who generously offered advice to a new member of the blogosphere to Carol's giving back to start-up bloggers and the blog community .. it's all about the people along the way. It's also a tale about taking a risk and not worrying (too much) about the Cheeto dust on your keyboard.
The tag line for Lay's Potato chips is "You can't eat just one!" Well, I could take or leave potato chips, but the cheesy, orange-finger goodness of Cheetos is one I just can't refuse. There is no way for me to eat just one Cheeto--- see, the name doesn't even lend itself to a singular form. Blogging is a lot like that for me. I can't have just one!
In late October 2005, I launched my company's blog: Psychiatric Resource Forum after the gentle prodding and support of a very close friend, Teresa Caro. Being a consummate marketer extraordinaire, she told me of the benefits of blogs, how it could help boost search engine position and how it could help us interact with our customers and be seen as a value added service.
