Ditto Steve's comments. Also marketing companies are promoting blogs and
RSS feeds for boosting SEO--Search Engine Optimization--possibly the
latest, groovadelic buzzword in marketing circles. It applies to marketing
oneself for job searches, too.

A well-done, regularly updated professional blog can
- increase exposure of your online brand
- demonstrate your writing and presentation abilities
- RSS feeds can boost your online profile faster when updated
several times/week
- regularly "sharpen the saw"...or practice writing.

One blogger wrote that he would have a hard time writing a book because it
seemed like a huge, intimidating project. On the other hand, if he wrote
enough blog entries on a particular subject, he might have the core of a
book after a year or so...and relatively painlessly.

Examples of SEO-promoting marketing companies:

Buzz on and blog out, dudes... ;-]

One of the best things about blogs is that search
engines like them provided that they get updated

So a professional blog, either on or linked to your
professional web site, can be a good marketing tool.

Create HTML or Microsoft Word content and convert to Help file formats or
printed documentation. Features include support for Windows Vista & 2007
Microsoft Office, team authoring, plus more.

True single source, conditional content, PDF export, modular help.
Help & Manual is the most powerful authoring tool for technical
documentation. Boost your productivity!
