Want to Write a Blog for Bloomberg Businessweek?

Want to write a blog for Bloomberg Businessweek?  You can and I did.

The online magazine has a Small Business Department and every day it carries a blog in a section called “Today’s Tip.” My post, Why Small Business Owners Need a Blog appeared in the January 21st edition and has since received several thoughtful comments.  Here are the instructions from the site for submitting your blog:

About

Want to improve the way you run your business? Entrepreneurs, academics, and consultants from diverse industries offer practical advice on a variety of topics each business day.

To submit a tip for consideration, first check our archive of previous tips to make sure you’re not repeating a tip someone has already contributed. Then send the tip to Small Business channel contributor Michelle Dammon Loyalka. Because of the volume of material she receives, she may not respond to each individual.

If you click on the link to my article and look to the right you’ll see the link to write to Michelle. It took several weeks for her to get back to me, so don’t despair. And, because she receives so many submissions, it would be a good idea to send a reminder after a couple of weeks. She actually thought she had replied to me when she hadn’t – not that I fault her she has a lot of material to read through. After the blog post ran, and I sent her a thank-you note, she wrote back and suggested I submit another blog if I had a good topic to write about.

So if you want to brag to your friends about appearing in this well-known business magazine, start writing and good luck!

    Thanks, Nanette and Mike. It was fun and while I got some PR I got a plug in for blogging, too!
