Kathie Thomas: How Blogging Can Help Your Business

Kathie Thomas - Group Mastery Blogging Expert

I was delighted to be asked to join this fantastic team and teach you all about blogging!

You know, we don't always know what is our intended path in life and we only find that out by exploration followed by a series of successes and failures. Hopefully more of the former rather than the latter!

When a client of mine in 2005 asked me to explore blogging for them I thought 'oh, oh, another fad of the day' and was reluctant to do it.  I often felt like I might have been chasing wild gooses but I figured I was getting paid for it, so I better do what I was asked.  In my 'fulltime' capacity, I'm a Virtual Assistant and I assist many clients virtually on the web.  More about Kathie.

To make sure I'm doing anything properly I always set up projects of my own so that I'm not on my client's time learning how something works.  I was not to know that blogging would become addictive!  Today I'm in Australia's Top 100 Bloggers and have been there now for close to 3 years.  I own over a dozen blogs and write to several of them on a regular basis every month, and a couple every week, sometimes several times a week.

I've learned what makes a blog work and how to build your audience, but more to the point, your expertise in a field. And I've successfully published 2 books (so far) from successful blogs I've written and established.

So, how can I help you?

  • Firstly to understand what a blog is
  • How to establish a regular posting pattern
  • How to build your audience
  • Which programs I recommend to use
  • And how to use a blog to support your business and brand

So I'm here at Group Mastery to help you establish yourself as an expert in your field by using a blog.  I look forward to getting to know you!
