As you can see, I have a blog as part of my website and while I sat here looking out of the window at the glorious sunshine, I had an idea...
Why not invite people to write a guest blog post, but not any normal people ohhh noooo... other businesses, but not just any business... ohhh noooo... local businesses in our community (by local I mean Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, etc) which are not part of a large corporation like costa (for example), but more like Joe Bloggs plumbers or Hair by Edna, they can be from the high street or working out of their garden shed... as long as they are a registered business and they are respectable (good feedback on websites/Facebook etc) they are welcome.
Now this is still a work in progress, but, what I am thinking is, each month, I will open a vote on Facebook for the coming months business category, e.g. Hair Stylist, MUA, Plumber, IT Consultant, e.t.c people can post their preferred category and after a few days the category listed the most (or which has the most likes) will win, then for 5 days people can name a business in that category (you can put your own business down if you like as long as it is in that category) again the business listed the most or with the most likes will win and will be contacted to ask if they would like to be the guest blogger for the month, if they decline, the next business with the highest.. blah blah blah, you get where I'm coming from.
now... what do you think? is this a good thing? would you read it?
