Blogging is For Everybody

Blogs are becoming an excellent way of sharing information on any subject. Instead of searching Google for general sites about a subject, one can go straight to a Blog on the subject in question and read daily thoughts and ideas by others with the same interest as well as expert points of view.

Blogs are websites with content management systems that allow visitors to the site to add content. They are forums for organizations and individuals to exchange ideas and communicate with their partners, customers, etc. Blogs are in reverse chronological order. That’s how we read them, and that’s how they’re archived. Blogs are usually heavily linked to other blogs discussing similar topics, thus the technique of inspecting blog rolls can be a valuable, but time consuming method for discovering additional blogs.

Comments are the sole responsibility of the person posting them. You agree not to post comments that are off topic, defamatory, obscene, abusive, and threatening or an invasion of privacy. Comments systems and democratic posting privileges allow employees in an organization to give voice to ideas and provide feedback on procedures in a manner not previously possible in a distributed office environment. Further, personalized responses to news and messages are a simple means of developing an understanding of the collective knowledge of an organization and a means of broadening that knowledge, thus creating intelligence from knowledge.

Web blogs are transforming much of society, including government, politics, and business. In the past few years, blogs definitely want to increase your Alexa rank, because it’ll increase your bargaining power when it comes to ad pricing. Web 2.0 empowers us to leverage the collective intellect. When information is posted in good faith, it can drive value for everyone.

General Blogs are more interesting to people from all walks of life. Generally, this does not happen. Even signed to a major label does not guarantee you success.

Email is and will probably be safe for at the very least another decade or so. All the tools that we use, especially Twitter, are early adopter tools. Emails and blogs will be just like the letters and journals of the past. I know the President at our University saves all of his emails for archival purposes, though I don’t think our library really knows what to do with them yet!

Business blogs are very helpful because mostly they speak about experience. And I think that experience in business counts more compared to any book advice. Businesses need to watch out for the type of information employees post, ensuring proprietary information is not shared. Employees also must evaluate the consequences of writing for blogs, which could inadvertently cause corporate scrutiny if questionable material is posted.
