What’s wrong with this text:

It’s critical for your blog, as a value-added proposition, to go forward, push the envelope, and sociably grab the low-hanging fruit via a second-to-none, seamless integration.

Does they gobbledygook actually mean anything to you? Avoid “business-speak.” It’s a turn-off to potential readers because it’s so overused and vague.
