Biz Blog: Developing, Managing and Marketing a Company Blog

October 13, 2010

Charlotte Bohnett, Lawrence Technological University Graduate

The Southeastern Michigan Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (STC/SM) will offer an STC/SM Program Meeting on Wednesday, October 13, 2010, hosted at Lawrence Technological University, in Southfield, Michigan. The program will focus on the development and life-cycle of corporate blogs, featuring Charlotte Bohnett.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn and think about the potential of blog development for technical writers, network with your colleagues, and find out about new member services your STC/SM council has been developing. In addition, we will also hold a surprise door prize giveaway at the event for attendees—win your STC/SM T-shirt!

We look forward to the possibility of seeing you in a relaxed, professional setting. For more information or if you have any other questions, visit the STC/SM Chapter Programs webpage, or send an e-mail to the STC/SM Programs Manager. To register, send an e-mail to the STC/SM Registration Coordinator.

Program Overview

According to ePolicy Institute founder Nancy Flynn, while a new blog is now created every second, corporate blogging remains relatively new and largely untapped. In 2005, only 10% of small businesses had incorporated blogs into their marketing plans.

For Lawrence Technological University graduate and Creative Director Charlotte Bohnett, her employer was part of that 10%. Join Charlotte on October 13 as she shares her experiences transitioning from blog reader to blog developer, manager, marketer, and ultimately professional blogger. Faculty member Tom Glennan also joins, discussing the newbie's perspective on business blogging.
