Blogging is a way to get an audience for your ideas and connect with people. Writing articles regularly lets people see your style and how you communicate. For a business, a blog is a less formal place to reveal more about a company. When blogging, a post should contain something of quality, or you may risk losing a follower. There are different websites out there that offer free hosting, and template designs. Blogger and WordPress are two such popular sites.

The difference between a website and a blog is that, a blog has regularly updated information posted on it chronologically, with the most recent information appearing first. The information will also have a headline, and the ability for readers to comment. You can also change these free blog sites into a formal .COM by purchasing a site. That’s how one removes the words WordPress or blogger from their Domain name.

I like how a blog can also be a diary, and a location point for saved information. Everything that you placed on the page is there to be easily referenced at anytime. I have included art, music, and photography that I have produced on my blog. Without difficulty I am able to go to the site and locate the information I may want to share or experience again.

Using words that grab a reader’s attention are helpful, as well as using images, video and links in the posts that add content and clarity to what you’re trying to say. There’s a community of like minded people out there and a blog is a way to find them.


What I think of using Twitter?

twitter birdTwitter is an interesting and fun pastime. Almost everyone has a twitter account, and Twitter makes finding people and keeping updated on their lives easy. There is much information to be shared, many pictures to be seen, a great deal of music to be heard, and a lot of news to tell out there on Twitter. The flow of tweets is constant and tweets are happening in real time by the second. Astronauts are sending picture tweets from space now!

Twitter is a way to find like minded individuals, and track news and current trends while giving one a presence on the internet. Your account is available to anyone for following, and almost anyone is available for following including celebrities. Twitter has become a place for breaking news, and is a tool of Journalism for the professional or the average passerby. If the national media overlooks a story for coverage, the story can still be heard through the accounts of regular people expressing their views or stating their facts. This may make the media more accountable for the factual news events they present.

Having an account seems to be an essential necessity in marketing today. Twitter has been established for nine years, and has 300 million users. One hundred and forty characters are allowed in a single tweet. Hash tags help in organizing and finding information. Though people say Twitter has remained the same over the years, I am expecting some new innovations in the near future.
