We helped a skincare company set up a blogging strategy and a blogging team – we trained their bloggers and now they cannot imagine NOT having a blog for company updates, announcements, product releases and beauty news.

Corporate blogging is not about showing off your cat, it’s about showing off your company.
It doesn’t have to have cheerful/happy/positive news all the time (that would be totally fake) but it has to have the right balance so that you (as a company) is believable.
Once you are believable, people will trust you. Once they trust you, they’ll trust your products and services.
