Blogs: are they still as unique as they once were. Or are they just popular due to fingertip technology?
I enjoy planning blog topics, researching, writing and receiving comments. I really enjoy visiting other blogs and leaving comments as well.
There's so much talent in blogland that you can't visit all the sites you've read about and there is an incredible amount of talent just bubbling to the surface.
What's changed for blogs:
- Lots of opportunity to guest post
- Photos have improved
- Connecting with others who live distances away
- Number and types of blogs from some unlikely places
- Increased spam in comments
- Increased Blogs and blog post comments disappearing
Being able to share in an open forum, such as a blog, for me personally, is about learning how others think, write about, and share their life experiences, design, food interests, families, country, and information. Blog time is invaluable!...despite the spam issues.
Many blogs provide commentary on particular subjects, others function as personal diaries, online brand advertising of an individual or company. A typical blog contains: text, images, links to others, web pages, and media related topics. Some blogs are textual, some focus on art, photographs, videos, music, or just audio.
As of February 2011, there were over 156 million public blogs in existence. On October 13, 2012, there were 77 million Tumbler and 56.6 million WordPress blogs in existence worldwide.
Blogs demand and incredible amount of time, spam maintenance, and planning each day, week, month and if you blog in addition to other professions such as interior design, shop owners, graphic design, artist, photographer,
e-commerce, marketing, parenting, home schooling, and or social media, just to name a few.
Your current skills are always being challenged by new technology, tools, updated systems, and new ways to blog and cut down on spam. So do leave a comment...I love to know.
