July 2012 chat update: we’re back, honest!

Because of host/organizer travel schedules and various other crises, we’re limping along a little bit with the chat, but never fear….it’s time to get back on the horse.

There are some great guest hosts and topics lining up for August, and for the last chat in July (Thursday, July 26, 1130am – 1230pm CST as usual) we’re going to talk about “building a better blog.”

Strategy, content, SEO and why a blog is – hands down – your most powerful online publishing and social media channel.
