Communications Overtones has their interpretation of the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People: “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Blogs.”
- Develop content based on principles and values.
- Have a vision or purpose statement.
- Think win-win.
- Seek first to understand…then to be understood.
- Renew yourself.

All I’ve been doing lately is working, which leaves little conversation for my blogs.
