Is Your Blog a Fine Steak Dinner or a Cheap Chinese Buffet?

FINALLY an article that will SAVE YOU TIME. I’m about to tell you to STOP blogging so much. Maybe even stop tweeting and updating statuses so much on LinkedIn and Facebook, too.

How’s that feel? Big time saver, I know. But, should you be concerned that this will hurt your SEO rankings?

James from MenWithPens.ca has written a thought-provoking article about ditching your regular blogging schedule. She contends it is much better to have the occasional article that people relish reading, send to others and link to in their online conversations. And I’ve found she is probably right. The articles from blogs I’ve managed for clients tend to get much more actionable activity when they’re meatier and more spread out between publications.

Her advice seems pretty obvious from this statement she writes:

“So here’s a thought: Let’s forget the cheap Chinese buffet rule of having consistent blogging schedule and ditch it in favour of an occasional steak dinner. The kind you save up for and enjoy. The kind you really savour. The kind you look forward to because it’s rare. And because it’s that good.”

Clever Logos Don’t Happen By Accident

Hidden message in Tostitos Logo?msnNOW.com has a great visual slide presentation of twenty corporate logos that are almost all instantly recognizable. However, prepare yourself for a few double-takes. My biggest surprise of all these? The Atlanta Falcons logo. And I was born and raised in Atlanta and have been an Atlanta Falcon (& Braves!) fan all my life.

A friend and I were going over the logos and he thought the hidden message in the FedEx logo may be  coincidental. It wasn’t. We stress to our clients how important it is to seek out and be willing to pay for an experienced, professional graphics design shop when considering a company or product brand logo.

But, since a Logo is worth a 1,000.000 Orders, you be the judge. Intentionally clever? Subtly hidden just for insiders? What do you think? Click on first sentence to see the entire slide show presentation.
