To Blog or Not to Blog? That is the Question…

Insights For Acupuncturists

IFA

I have been resisting putting a blog on my Insights-For-Acupuncturists website for some time. It just seems like a lot of work without much reward. And if I am going to do a lot of work, I would rather be adding quality content pages to my website, instead of sharing ‘musings’ on a blog.

You see, that’s my problem in a nutshell! Blogs seem like places to ponder ideas and share whimsical musings and opinions. I do not see blogs as places to put quality information and resources. A website on the other hand seems to have more authority, in the sense that the information appears to be more credible. (Remember, perception is reality.)

But I must admit, I am intrigued by the blogging process and the newer WordPress blogs look really cool. (I especially like the look and features of Brian Gardner’s WordPress Revolution Themes. Plus the guy gives great tutorials for newbies!)

So anyway (I can say that since this is a blog)… I thought perhaps I should step out of my comfort zone and give blogging a whirl. After all, I do see lots of acupuncturists creating some awesome blogs and even clinic websites that are in blog format. So, thanks to to my husband, who set this blog up and told me where to point and click to post my ‘musings’, I will be blogging for acupuncturists in the weeks, months and hopefully years to come!

  1. Lisa,

    I’m afraid the answer to your question is… “To Blog.”

    I’ve also been putting it off due to time restraints, but as I was installing my new blog tonight I noticed you had beat me to it. You have an awesome website that is a valuable resource to practitioners, but I think you will be pleasantly surprised to see your blog take off and become just as popular.

    Once again I commend you on a job well done.

    To Your Continued Success,

    Frank Prieto

  2. Hi Frank,
