"If life doesnt offer a game worth playing, then invent a new one" - Anthony J. DAngelo
The invention of blog truly justifies this quote, providing us with the latest information in our living room by people we have not seen before. Blogging has become quite a rage in the last few years enabling like-minded people to interact with each other and exchange their ideas.
The latest state of the biosphere report says that the number of blogs being tracked by technorati now stands at more than 14.2 million, which is huge step up from 7.8 million in March this year. Since blogs offers special features such as instant publication of ideas and frequently updated short posts, everyone gets benefited. The content and purposes of blogs varies greatly - from links and commentary about other web sites, to news about a company/person/idea, to diaries, photos, poetry, mini-essays, project updates, even fiction.
Blog posts are like instant messages to the web. Many blogs are personal like, "whats on my mind". Others are collaborative efforts based on a specific topic or area of mutual interest like "GOD". Some blogs are for play and fun while some are for work. A blog can bring everyone in the loop to exchange ideas, promote cohesiveness and group culture rather than going for email or discussion forum. A blog allows everybody to express their views, which can be anything ranging from political commentary, a personal diary, or links to some interesting web sites.
Many people use a blog just to organize their own thoughts, while others command influential, worldwide audiences of thousands. Professional and amateur journalists use blogs to publish breaking news, while some use blogs to share inner thoughts. For example Blogger Profile lets you to find people with whom you may want to share your thoughts. Also, your posted profile lets other people to find you (but only if you want to be found). Your Blogger Profile lists your blogs, your recent posts, photos and more. Clicking on features like interests or location takes you to other peoples profiles, which you may find interesting and creative. For example Blogger Comments allows readers of your site from all over the world give feedback on what you share on your blog. You can choose whether or not you want to allow comments on a post-by-post basis (and you can delete anything you dont like). One of the hallmarks of the blog is its uniqueness, indicating that its not just another space in a website put up in haste and abandoned.
If a blog can built image for you then it can also tarnish your image within seconds. Hence, you should bear in mind the adverse effect of wrong posting on any blog. As far as companies are concerned, they do this through survey and customer feedback, which enables them to know about the taste of people visiting their website. Thus, the blogging experience is not only about putting your thoughts on the web, but hearing back from and connecting with other like-minded folks.
So, if you want to be famous and reach out to the people who have same thinking frequency as yours, keep blogging.
