Blogs: energy, immediacy, humanity

Prospective clients almost always get around to the question: "Why is a blog better than my (traditional) website?" It’s difficult to answer without using words like: boring, stagnant, lifeless, etc.

But even a well-designed site, packed with information, rarely has the energy, immediacy and humanity of the average blog. Today I was presented with a great illustration of this quality.

One of our sports producers pulled a short (90 sec) sound bite from one of the coaches shows we produce, and sent it on to Clyde for the corporate blog. (I’ll wait while you take a listen)

That post says a lot about our company. Who we are, what we value. Where would you put something like that on a conventional website? But it fits perfectly in the contest of the blog Clyde has created.

  1. I’ve played that coaches comment to several and it touches everyone.. Sound bites DO have an amazing ability to trigger emotions. clyde
