The Importance of Blogging

Hello the SEC 2011 participants,

We have been reading some magnificent blogs over the past couple of months but you and your school enterprise team need to make them regular, at least once a month.  It is a requirement of the competition to write a blog every month that tells us who you are, what you have been doing, information about your school enterprise, why the competition is important to you, etc.

Blogs are a fantastic way for us and for your fellow competitors to share news and developments of your school enterprise and to track your progress.  Without a blog, we know very little about your business and your school.

Let’s get blogging!
