Approaches to Corporate Blogging
 
We're a little slow in catching up with this post by Freek Janssen on Lewis PR 360, but it's worth noting for the insight it provides into planning a business blog. "But first of all: why?" Janssen asks, and provides four possible answers that are more nuanced than, simply, "We want to be out there."

A corporate blogger, Janssen notes, 1) Can join in with existing collaborative blogs (a good way to get your feet wet, we'd note), 2) Boost your online newsroom, 3) Produce a full-fledged corporate blog, or 4) Develop a community blog, which takes us back to the collaborative emphasis in point number one. These are suggestions well worth pondering, among other possibilities, before plunging into business blogging.
