My 100th Blog Article ~ Time to Celebrate!

Celebrating 100 Blog Articles

Eureka, I have done it!  You are now reading my 100th blog article!

When I first started writing this blog, I never really imagined that I would be capable of writing 100 blog posts ~ especially when I was struggling with the first.

(If you want to see how far I have come, take a look at my first few posts Background Check breakdown Pt. 1, Why You Should Run a Background Check on Yourself, and Face to Face Communication!)

My goal then was to simply write some articles to help “brand” my business.  What I have found instead is that blogging has been a wonderful, rewarding, and crazy journey.  In fact, I believe it to be the singular most satisfying thing I have done both for myself and my business.

Personally, I have enjoyed a freedom of expression and creativity that I had been lacking.  Running my own business has always been a time consuming prospect ~ as I am sure many of you will agree.  While I thoroughly enjoy the challenge, it didn’t allow me an outlet for my voice.

I felt I had a perspective to share gained from the trials and tribulations of entrepreneurship and life.....and Blogging was the way to do it! 

Suddenly I could share my viewpoints on topics I found interesting, in hopes that others would feel the same.  It was also a fantastic way to provide information on the often misunderstood world of background checks.

Access Profiles ~ a Small Business Blog

This is where the benefits of blogging on my business has been unparalleled.  I am able to spread the word about the background check industry in ways never afforded to me before.

People that come across my blog are instantly aware of what I do and, most importantly, why I do it.  Through my articles I have worked to dispel myths about background checks and shared my thoughts on how using them in the hiring process can be done right.

I have even gained new clients through the added exposure blogging gives my business.  These new clients shared that they already felt they “knew” me and understood how I work through reading my articles.

What could be better?

Now I am celebrating the 100 chances I have had so far to reach an audience.  I will marvel at how daunting that seemed at the beginning and feel a great sense of accomplishment now that I have succeeded.  

I can only hope that this is simply the first leg of my journey.  I want it to be a long one.

I sincerely thank all of you for coming back time and again to read what I have to say.  It is appreciated more than you can know. 

Onward to 200..........
