Chris BroganHoly Toledo, am I having a great time at BlogWorld! I’m exhausted, energized, and inspired.

In my last post, I invited you to share your questions about blogs and blogging and promised that I’d seek out various bloggers to share their thoughts and advice. You certainly didn’t disappoint! Excellent questions poured in via email, Twitter, the AlmostSavvy Facebook page, and comments on my blog.

I absolutely believe there are enormous benefits to having a blog – if you have a plan and the dedication to stick with it. Rather than listen to just my take on things, I invite you to listen to a number of amazingly talented and generous bloggers I talked with at the conference.

Here, Chris answers the extremely important question, “How can having a blog help me or my business?”
