Ask GWA: Why Blog?

Questions Image Credit: AllThingsDI know this might seem like a crazy question, but I wanted to know what is the benefit of blogging for business.  I own a small insurance company and my employees think it would be good idea to blog, as I have over 30 years experience in insurance that I could share on the blog.  I am on the fence about starting a blog.
