My Personal Favorite Blogs That I Have Written

Posted by Matt Roberge on Jul 5, 2013 7:00:00 AM

I wrote my first blog post for SLC Bookkeeping on April 18, 2010 titled Asking For A Referral The Right Way.  As I read the article again it has some valuable information but is certainly not my best work.  One thing that I have learned about business blogging is that writing for SEO and keywords is not always the best approach.  In fact I find that the blogs that I write in which I don't consider SEO or keywords are some of my best work.  Some of those blog posts deliver big traffic volume and others do not.  I looked over all of the blogs I have ever written for SLC Bookkeeping and came up with a list of my favorites in no particular order.  Enjoy.
