Five Ocala Blogs That You Should Be Reading
Ocala Florida is known for its horse farms and somewhat slow pace of life.
However, the town is no different from others in that the majority of its citizens are locked into the technology craze, taking advantage of the speed and ease of the internet.
This internet boom has also resulted in the creation of many blogs that deal with issues related to Ocala or those that live here.
But with so many blogs, it is difficult to know where to start the search for interesting content. Many small businesses now feature their own blog, but do we really want to read about the nuances of accounting or the pitfalls of being an electrician?
What we want is a blog that keeps us coming back, that updates its content frequently, and is interesting.
Although there are many blogs in Ocala that fit this bill, here is a look at five that stand above the rest.
Speaking Of Business
This blog is geared toward small businesses and really delivers when it comes to useful information that can be applied in the world of business. Any Ocala business who hasn’t yet discovered this gem is missing the boat.
The content is superb because the author has the credentials to back it up.
Dr. Phillip R. Geist works for the University of North Florida Small Business Development Center while also having an MBA in management and finance. In other words, he is very smart and business savvy.
As a small business owner, I find this blog to be an incredibly useful resource. Check it out and you will also. Read it here: https://pgeist.blogs.ocala.com/.
