If the thought of blogging for your business has got you down in the dumps, it’s time to turn that smile upside down. In this post you’ll find blogging quotes that will inspire you to embrace the “blog.”

Blogging doesn’t have to be a chore. It’s fun and easy to do, if you understand the reason “why” you’re writing.

Experts agree that if you start a blog and focus solely on making money, you’ll fail. Why? Because you won’t provide value to your readers.

If you’re struggling with your small business blog, it’s time to relax and let go. Read the blogging quotes below, read them twice or three times if you have to. Let the wisdom sink into your mind and soul and then outline a post and write it.
