The End of Blogging for Business Month!
Today is the end of a wonderful Month about blogging. However, we would like to end May by awarding the top 3 local businesses that have awesome blogs! Many small businesses strive on blogging to get their names out to the world wide web and to people who may be interested in their business. Drio has created an award that highlights a small business for their blogging achievements. We have established 4 criterias that each business must meet.
Drio’s Criteria Checklist:
1. Self-Hosted (the blog is on their domain name)
2. Engagements: Receiving and responding to comments
3. Posting at least 3 times a month
4. Special Quality
Here are 3 Baltimore Business Blog the Winners:
Charm City Yoga has won first place!
Not only does Charm City Yoga heal the body, their blog helps heal the mind. It is up to date and they post at least 3 times a month. Their blog topics are engaging and they blogged about releasing a FREE Charm City Yoga App where you can sign up for classes directly from your iPhone or Android. Charm City Yoga has 6 different locations offering several levels of yoga classes, pre-natal, meditation and corporate classes. They even offer FREE yoga classes at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD.
And the runner up goes to the owners of Brick Bodies!
The 2 owners of Brick Bodies, Lynne Brick and Victor Brick each have their own blog that talk about Fit Tips. They both blog regularly and incorporate a personal side in some of their posts. Their blog maintains the same look and feel of the website by having a right sidebar that is clutter free. The blog sidebar, includes recent posts, connect with us using social media icons and a sign-up form to for viewers to subscribe to their blog.
