Early Blogging Success

So far I have had one article that has been linked to through organic means. Both sites happen to find my article of value to their users, entrepreneurs and business people.

So thank you to Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship and Jeff Barr’s Blog.

The article “Finding a Quality Business Incubator” has also been widely syndicated this morning, results are still coming in.

It’s amazing and neat to write something that people find valuable. I am really enjoying this blogging thing. Links mean more than comments to me I think; although, both would be nice.

“We’re pleased to announce Google Base, a new resource for sellers that gives you the tools you need to easily submit your feeds (now called bulk uploads) to Froogle and keep them updated. The Google Base dashboard has completely replaced the Froogle Merchant Center. In addition to a new user interface, Google Base offers many new features to help you list your information in Froogle, as well as in other Google search applications.”

Tips for Finding a Quality Business Incubator

When looking for an incubator there are several things you should be asking yourself. All of these initial questions pertain to the future, the past, and the people. Past Success

  • How many successful companies started in this incubator?
  • How long has the incubator been running?
  • Who funds the incubator? Is it a non-profit or government program?
  • Have there been drastic changes in the program lately?
  • What do non-successful companies and partners of the incubator think about it?
