We have written about blogs a fair amount on Social Media B2B lately because it seems to be a good way for business to business companies to begin to understand the social web and the building of a community around their business. A new blog is started with lots of ideas and energy, but invariably, you hit a wall where you don’t know what to write about. Sometimes that happens after just a few posts, or it may happen after a few months, but at some point in the early life of a blog, you will wonder what to write about.

    Great post. At FohBoh, we are always looking for new community management/stimulus ideas. Recently, we engaged a group in Manila to work with us on SEO and other outreach traffic building programs to generate more traffic. This list of tactics will surely help that effort. I’ll let you know how that works with 3 full time assistant community managers working while we are sleeping.

    BTW, FohBoh has over 12,000 members now with a reach of at least 25,000 restaurants. So far, so good.
