Welcome Readers to New Atlanta Business Blog

Hi. This is my first day blogging and I’d like to know what you’re interested in. I’m not new to business reporting, but a Web blog is not something I would have pictured for myself — at least not in this lifetime. You never know.

My tentative plan is to update you on important local biz developments. I also won’t ignore big national news if I think you may not be aware of something.

I’m hoping to offer some perspective and context for understanding the news.

And I’ll try to make this a spot that you’ll want to check regularly. So please let me know what you care about.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Henry,
I am interested in knowing how local businesses are dealing with the changes in the economy. A list of businesses that are downsizing, and even hiring. I , also, want to know which local businesses are giving back to the community or celebrating the loyalty of its customers. I think that this will be a great informative blog.

I think it would be interesting to have a weekly or monthly profile of a small/medium sized local business.

Hi, Henry. I’d like to read about savvy advertising and PR strategies that are working for Atlanta companies during the downturn – doing more on smaller budgets, brilliant ideas that get big bang for the buck. Ranging from the corner dry cleaner to Coke and UPS.

I keep hearing that the luxury travel market is really suffering.
The famed Cloister at SeaIsland is no exception. Rumors abound about it’s future. Anyone out there know what is going on? Thanks.
