December 29, 2015

Countdown.jpgAs the blog editor here at Select International, I spend a ton of time writing and editing blog posts. It's what I do, and this year I'm particularly proud of the results we've seen from our blog. Subscribers, views, and share counts have all increased drastically, and I think that's a result of our goals for the blog. Our goals for Select Perspectives aren't to sell or promote our products, we created the blog to help educate, inform, and sometimes entertain our readers.

This article helps clear that up.
