It’s all about the Content.
Build It And They Will Come.
Now, I understand that I’m working for a tools company – but that’s because I’ve got no creative bones in my writing hand, so I have a hard time building content. (I mean, look at the rockin’ design that this blog is sporting! Isn’t that a testament to my level of creativity?)
