Why Blogs? • Those who use blogs and social networking sites as an outlet for civic engagement are far more active in traditional realms of political and nonpolitical participation than are other internet users. In addition, they are even more active than those who do not use the internet at all. (PEW Internet – 9/09) www.marketingsavant.com The MarketingSavant Group 888.989.7771
  21. Even if you have great website, consider a blog site. Remember, content and conversation are paramount.
