Hugh Hewitt, in his groundbreaking book "Blog," suggests (insists?) that every business (and every entrepreneur) needs to blog.

Well, I'm going to test that hypothesis.

Why InsureBlog? Well, I googled [ed: how quickly that term became verbified] "insurance+blog," and came up with a true paucity of entries. Perhaps that means a niche to fill.

Perhaps not.

In any case, let's give it a whirl. I am a professonal, independent insurance agent in the Dayton, Ohio area. In addition to 22+ years selling and servicing insurance products, I'm also a partner in a Continuing Education provider, with over 10 years of teaching my fellow agents in Ohio and Kentucky. My practice area is primarily benefits; that is, life, health, disability and the like. For "those in the know," I am the proverbial "life guy in a P & C shop."

What do I hope to accomplish with this blog? To tell you the truth (always a challenge for someone in the insurance biz), I'm not really sure. I'd like to think that this could become a clearinghouse for breaking insurance info, maybe a resource for folks with insurance questions or problems, hopefully a place for my clients to find interesting articles and links to insurance-related items.

Have I missed anything?

Probably, but that's the beauty of these electronic tablets: literally nothing is cast in stone.

Here we go...
