If you are looking for contacts or contracts your Blog will help but so will you connection on Linked In and the other tools.

The use of many of these tools can be combined. When I post to Curious Voyager I also have a link sent to Foursquare as well as Twitter and my post is being noted on Linked In.

Beginners Guide to Blogging

What should a small business' website do? -

Very interesting read from the USA TODAY. If you have, are involved in, or are planning to have a web site there is some really good information here.
