I’m not sure if you have noticed, but my website is down. BUT fear not! Down is not out! I am getting some expert help with a new site, so hopefully, it won’t be too long before everything is back to normal.
With the temporary absence of a website, I say,
Keep Calm and start blogging
Why? Well, there is a lesson to be learnt when things happen unexpectedly and ‘keep calm and…’ seems to fit the bill.
If you’re wondering where this phrase originated from, stay tuned. If you already know the back story bear with me.
So, according to good old Wikipedia, the slogan was one used to motivate and raise the morale of the British public ahead of the World War Two.
The slogan has been around such a long time, why the rise in its use? Maybe the word austerity has something to do with it. According to the Guardian,
‘It is the ruling emblem of an era that is increasingly defined by austerity nostalgia.’
If you want to wander down memory lane, read the rest of the article in the Guardian.
So, going back to what lesson we can learn. I guess it’s to do with what the British do best. To keep a stiff upper lip! In my case, I decided that despite having no website, I would keep calm and start blogging.
If you find yourself or your business in a tricky place, keep calm and start blogging. Seriously! Think about it. Writing down what you’re going through could encourage others who are facing the same issues as you. It may also make business decisions a bit clearer.
As SMEs or as part of the self-employed workforce, there are times when we feel as though we are on our own and what we are going through only applies to us. This is of course not the case and as a couple of the attendees of the Introduction To Blogging Workshop mentioned – blogging is a way of documenting your day to day journey. This is so true!
Blogging can help
- you to record activities within the business
- you to interact with your clients
- document past and future plans
