That does occasionally sound a bit too patronizing, however, the proponents of business blogging are always right, regardless of which business niche you occupy. Many business owners make an excuse that their niche is too "dry" to warrant a blog, yet you can’t really use that one because the automotive industry is probably one of the most…Continue
