I've given three training sessions on blogging for new clients this week ... and it's only Tuesday. Tomorrow, I'm speaking at the MicrocreditNH Entrepreneurial Exchange Day and one of my two speeches is on blogging. Indeed, it seems to be all the rage in business.
When introduced to the concept of posting information online for the first time, most people will immediately ask the obvious question, "how do I add pictures?" The answer in the past was to instruct them to purchase some type of low end image editing application ... requiring the outlay of cash and facing the inevitable learning curve.
All of that, however, has changed with the popping up of free web-based image editors. There are literally hundreds of these online and they're all pretty much offering the same feature set. Our pick is a service called Snip Shot because of its clean interface, ease of use, intuitive navigation and some of the enhanced features that improve the image quality (i.e. sharpen - applied after an image is reduced in size and is a little fuzzy).
Now there's no reason why your blog needs to be plain-jane, boring and pure text!
