As anyone who regularly visits the BizSugar community knows, we absolutely love our contributors.
Contributors like Sherryl Perry, who we recognize today as “Contributor of the Week,” add so much to BizSugar everyday by submitting articles, making comments and networking with other members via the BizSugar main site and our social media presence on Facebook and Twitter. And we are so excited to get to know them!
Sherryl is no stranger to many of our members, we’re sure. Check out her awesome blog Keep Up With the Web and follow her unique posts on the BizSugar community sharing topics of particular importance to small business people operating online.
Here is Sherryl’s story:
“After spending over 20 years as an information technology professional, coupled with five years as a public school teacher, I found myself unemployed as the result of corporate downsizing,” Sherryl explains. “I’ve spent the past seven years launching home-based businesses. In the process, I developed a deep appreciation of the trials and tribulations of being a sole proprietor and a small business owner.”
Enter “Keep Up With The Web”…
“When I launched my blog, KeepUpWithTheWeb, my goal was to create a website where small business owners and entrepreneurs could exchange ideas and information,” Sherryl says. “There’s an entire community of like-minded bloggers and business people who collectively have a wealth of information to share. I wanted to foster that exchange while focusing on core business strategies that can be implemented both online and in the brick and mortar world.”
And where does BizSugar fit in with Sherryl’s efforts?
“BizSugar means three things to me, Sherryl explains. “First, it’s a resource where I can find a network of like-minded business people who share valuable information with each other. Second, BizSugar provides an opportunity to build awareness of my blog by submitting business related articles. The third benefit is the pingbacks, links, tweets and shares that I receive from BizSugar and the other members of the BizSugar community. BizSugar also provides me easy access to valuable information that I can share with my followers. This makes BizSugar a win-win-win (for me, the bloggers I’m connected with and my followers who benefit by learning from some of the articles that I find here).
