First of all I want to make sure that everyone understands what a blog is. In the most lament terms, a blog is a website that an individual updates with content often called “blog posts”. When you go to someone’s blog it is very normal to see the most updated post on the very top. People that have a blog and add content are called “bloggers”, and when they are updating a blog they are said to be “blogging”. As we go further down this rabbit hole, you will see that a blog can make you money online.
The Like and follow my page have evolved in way which makes them highly interactive. The owner of the blog can allow the visitors to post their comments. Many blogs allow the use of trackback which make them even more interactive. It is possible to subscribe to RSS feeds of the blogs by which the subscriber gets to know as soon as new posts are made to the blogs.
Another advantage is that blogs were as easy to use as a word processor application. This made it simple to use for people who did not know how to program. As the blog programs advanced, programmers started switching. Now there are many ways to adapt a blog and give it a unique feel.
Sure it took time. Sure it meant she had to foot the bill to send review copies to these folks. But these blog placements helped her become extremely well connected, and while her direct-pitching efforts to the ‘big guys’ were proving fruitless, these media folks respected the opinion of bloggers enough to book her based on their recommendation.
With blogs, size doesn’t always matter. If a blog has thousands and thousands of readers, that doesn’t mean it’ll be a slam dunk for you. Look at the comments section of the blog to see if people are actually providing feedback.
Oh, I’ve had a bunch of online blogs cover my business, but I got no sales. Bloggers are just looking for free stuff anyway. Plus I can’t afford to send them samples or waste my time writing guest posts. Enough with these little guys, I’m ready for the big leagues.
I hope you enjoyed this article! The internet provides the perfect opportunity for anyone, willing to learn, to become rich. Just remember, once your rich, make sure to give it all away!
At the end of the day, deciding on whether or not you want to have a website or blog will depend on what your purpose is, your skill level, and budget. Visit blogs to see what they look like and how they are structured and do the same with websites. Then decide what will work best for you and what you want to achieve.
