boating, brokerage, Business Blogging, clients, getting traffic, sailing
I’m delighted to introduce my newest client: Boatshed – the international boat and yacht brokers. I’ve begun contributing weekly articles to their blog and am assisting in the development of their Facebook page. You may already know I write for Boatshed Essex and Boatshed Grand Union. This new client is the Boatshed head office and the idea is to provide interesting content for anyone interested in boating. Whether you already have a boat or dream of becoming a broker the blog covers everything from galley recipes to money saving tips.
Boatshed is one of the worlds largest yacht brokerage groups with services offered across an international network of over 50 offices.
Visit the Boatshed blog to read things like a day in the life of a yacht broker, a book review of a family boating the French canals, how Boatshed registered their 500,000th customer and the night a carbon monoxide alarm saved my life.
If you like anything related to the boating or sailing lifestyle join us on our Facebook page. Their tag-line is “Life’s better on a boat!” Do you agree?

About Me, Blogging, Clients
Business Blogging, getting traffic

Well I have been a busy little bee; which can only be a good thing. In the wonderful world of business blogging, social media and getting traffic I have been writing lots of articles for my clients’ websites and I ate free cake at a blogging conference.
Anyone who follows this or my personal blog (The Real Life of a Narrowboat Wife) will know I am always moaning about the challenge of time management. I shared some tips about time by guest posting on the Alexander Residence blog: You Don’t Tell Time, Time Tells You.
For business blogging tips check out what I learned at BlogCampUK.
I really enjoy writing for Canal Voyagers hotel boats. Have you ever thought about how canal boats travel in an alternative time zone? Time can stretch, slow down and stop. Have you heard of Indian Stretchable Time?
For Boatshed Essex I am working on an ebook; more about that later. The post I most enjoyed writing for them this month was, They Got No Use for a Shanty Man, all about how boating and sailing has changed with technology.
“Floating computer dressed up like a ship
Skippered and crewed by a micro chip”.
On the Boatshed Grand Union blog I wrote about narrowboats for sale, historic narrowboats and the Crick Boatshow.
I am also told that I have an article published in The Waterways World Annual 2012, published at the end of March but I’ve not seen it yet…
Coming up next week: Look out for my guest post on the parent bloggers network BritMums.
