Blogs. I’m fairly new to this world. I have had a blog for a couple of weeks. Http://jimlockman.wordpress.com. I have been looking at blogs for at least a year now and didn’t even know they were blogs. Through e-mail, Facebook, and sites recommended to me, I have been viewing topics, articles, and newsletters without realizing they were blogs.
Joining the world of www.WordPress.com was one of the easiest thing I have ever done. And it’s FREE! The other day I talked to a friend from high school and his family uses blogs to stay in touch with each other. Whether you are using a blog to get your specific message out, keep up with people, create a place to share ideas, or you just need an ego boost by seeing your thoughts published on the web, blogging is a great communications tool. Facebook is fun, but blogging has the potential for more serious and intimate conversation as you build a following that has an interest in what you have to say.
So start a blog! It can be about a hobby, some business focus or your viewpoint on life or politics. Your blog can offer tips on how to paint a rocker, things to do for fun in Antartica, or offer viewpoints on why society abandoned the rotary dial on the telephone. Topics and ideas for blogs are as numerous and diverse as the people who could benefit from them. You could end up with a daily blog making you more money in advertising and product sales than you would ever make at your “day” job.
