Blogging has, under the right circumstances, a strong effect on the success of your business and income, according to the New York Times in an article titled Blogging Your Way Into a Business, just published last Friday, September 12th.
Also, I have met Carmina Perez a few months back at a Blogger Meetup with Charlene Li for the GroundSwell Book (signing). Here’s what the New York Times has to say about Carmina Perez:
Carmina Perez, 47, began her blog, Mogulettes-in-the-Making, about six months ago after a long career in finance and media. Over the years, she had taken a few stabs at starting various businesses, but she always returned to the security of a job.
When her last job came to an end in May 2006, she decided to get serious about entrepreneurship. But this time it would be different. She now had a considerable financial cushion so she could support herself while building a business.
In the past, Ms. Perez always started businesses on her own, and the isolation was part of the reason she never went far. Blogging seemed like the way to create an instant community of support.
Mogulettes-in-the-Making, the blog, is about helping other women build their businesses, the very business Ms. Perez is in the midst of building. Typical posts document meetings where she brings in an expert to teach her “mogulettes” something, like this post about a session on computer security, a lecture she organized with a guest speaker about public relations or a field trip to the Science, Industry and Business Library in New York City, which offers reference resources and free sessions with business counselors for entrepreneurs.
Though the blog has only about 300 page views a month, Ms. Perez has developed a small following among women who look to her for advice.
