Mission: “Saving Business Bloggers’ Time.”
Focus: We are about only one type of blogging/micro-blogging — “blogging for business.” This is the practice of blogging to expand the outreach of an existing business.
Unlike general blogging publications, we never force our business blogger readers to expend time reading posts related to “personal blogging” (maintaining a personal journal not related to business) or “problogging” (earning a living as a blogger)
Intelligence: With a combined total of more than 100 years of business blogging experience, our 40 business blogging experts work to provide our readers with all the information which they should know in advance of starting or improving their business blogs.
Therefore, we enable our readers to avoid expending their valuable time on numerous activities, such as performing search-based research on business blogging, posing questions at social media forums and then waiting days for responses and/or conducting their own, lengthy, trial-and-error experiments with unfamiliar blogging/micro-blogging software.
Topicality: We post on topics that business people should know prior to initiating a course of action concerning their blogs. Our readers, however, may “Request-a-Post on a topic that we have not as yet covered. When this occurs, we research and craft a post that provides the information they need to know.
Correspondingly, our readers never need to waste time — days, weeks, months — waiting for us to post on a business blogging topic of interest to them. They never need to expend similarly valuable time conducting broad searches on the web.
Instead, our readers Request-a-Post, go about their normal business and our experts do the rest. When the post is ready, the reader who initiated the Request-A-Post is notified and the post is published.
The Bloggers’ Bulletin was originally conceived of as the The Business Bloggers’ Bulletin (Note: You will find that the addresses TheBusinessBloggersBulletin.com/.org do, in fact, still forward to TheBloggersBulletin.com/.org). However, we tested both titles, The Business Bloggers’ Bulletin and The Bloggers’ Bulletin, and found that the majority of those surveyed tended to favor the shorter version, The Bloggers’ Bulletin.
The Bloggers’ Bulletin was founded in August, 2009 by its current Editor-In-Chief, Chris Franklin (pictured), with direction from business leader, Mike Clough. Its 40 Editors, Authors and Guest Bloggers were handpicked by Franklin after a review of thousands of very qualified candidates that lasted three months.
Chris himself began blogging in November 2004 and saw how his personal opinion blog had unexpectedly turned in to a tool with with significant business applications. In several instances, when he wrote opinion essays concerning new technologies applicable to the LA entertainment industry, his essays later established his credibility as someone with his mind on business matters of interest to entertainment leaders.
So, blogging had effectively, yet indirectly made Franklin money — it had reinforced his existing business activities and enabled him to ascend to higher levels of responsibility.
Yet, when he sought to improve what he was doing with his blog, Chris found that his type of blogging, “blogging for business,” seemed little discussed in the major blogging and micro-blogging publications he encountered. In fact such publications often discussed blogging only in the most general of terms — as though every blog and every bloggers’ needs were the same!
Though Chris did note that one or two of the most well-read blogging publications did address specific types of blogging, such as pro-blogging, he still found no major publication specifically focused on “blogging for business” — the practice of blogging to enhance the outreach of, or otherwise augment the blogger’s existing business.
This reality gave Chris pause. And it also made him think the following: “If I’m looking for a large, authoritative online publication specifically focused on serving those who “blog for business” and I can’t find one, might there be hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands of other business bloggers also seeking the time-saving benefits of a publication that solely specializes in the type of blogging they engage in?”
Then he reasoned, “why not form a major publication that does serve the business blogger, one written by a group of the best business bloggers on the web and intended for business people both new to blogging or seeking to optimize their existing business blogs?”
Thus emerged The Bloggers’ Bulletin, the first and largest multi-author publication solely devoted to the topic of “blogging for business.”
