I have known Ruth through VAnetworking.com since I joined back in October 2007 and have also had the pleasure of working alongside of her for several months now.  I have found Ruth to be an extremely honest, friendly, reliable and loyal person with a flair about her which is very unique to her person.  I have noticed a real passion for what she does and a motivation to achieve to the absolute highest quality.

Serious About Blogging? Serious About Blogging!

22 03 2009

I am so sorry for the lack of blogging here at the Virtual Rave!  We have had some techical problems with accessing the blog through no fault of WordPress at all.  Anyway, wanted to let you know that we are back on track and ready for some serious blogging.  We’ll have to do some really serious blogging if we want to catch up!!!

Are you serious about blogging?  Do you spend the time on blogging that you would like to?  Or maybe you procrastinate on it.  I really have to agree that sometimes it can be really a little hard to come up with new and fresh content.  To come up with some new and fresh content have a think about what has happened in your day, what you have done in the day and how you might be able to help others out with what you now know.  You could even blog about the lack of things to blog about if you can’t come up with anything else.

Hey, and remember there is also actually a way to blog without actually blogging…  If you are in business and would like to show a regular presence on the web but just don’t have the time to spend on this then maybe you could ask a Virtual Assistant to help you out.  You can hire a Virtual Assistant to blog for you on your behalf, as a representative for your business.  There are some Virtual Assistants who do this for a living I believe, and plenty who have a genuine love for blogging that have not yet had the opportunity to help others in this way but would really love to!
