In similar vein, theGood Housekeeping "You Mean It’s Not Just Me?" offers solutions to all manner of predicaments, from silverware losing its luster, reeking gymbags, or the lice your kids brought home from school.
What a perfect template that "Not Just Me" template could be, I can’t help thinking, when it comes to creating business blog posts!
- Assure searchers they’re not alone in their dilemma or need. Au contraire – their situation is common and eminently fixable! Most important, hasten to assure searchers, you’ve solved these precise problems for customers and clients many times before – piece of cake!

Voila! You’ve got yourself an extremely effective "advertorial" business blog!
