Cobweb Blogs

We are all busy people, but I fear that that we shall be coining the phrase coblogs - or cob web logs - for some of my illustrious counterparts on the West Berkshire Business Club are being a tad wayward at updating their blogs!

They might gather cobwebs, but the Google spiders who hunt out juicy, active and busy busy busy blogs ignore cobwebs and certainly the blogs languishing behind them.

Someone (possibly Mark Twain, maybe Abraham Lincoln) said something along the lines: "Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt" However, that just doesn't work on a blog. Barren blogs undermine the businesses they represent!

Business Week, no less, stuck the knife into such a wayward blog yesterday here. To give you there gruesome highlights they identify the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards 2006 blog Launched in September and with the winner being announced this week - it has nothing more than the initial blog entry. And this sponsored by Mercedes Benz Financial!

There is a lesson there for us all? How long before someone visits your blog and decided you are just not interested in their business?

Thank you Nigel. You are an inspiration to all West Berkshire Business Club members, myself included.

Without your gentle reminders I another week could have passed before I made any serious posts.
