Models of Blogs: Blog as Participant in Conversation (3 of 3)Many bloggers feel that the content of a blog is what makes it distinctive, not the look of the blog, but many members of the blogging community feel that the visual impact of a blog should match the originality of the writing.

Corporate blogging is a relatively new idea, and the jury is still out on whether it will succeed. This controversial marketing tool may be the beginning of a new kind of advertising strategy, or it may fizzle out in a matter of months. Many companies are looking for ways to capitalize on the blogging trend, and many of these corporations have determined that a great way to ride the blogging wave is to keep a blog on their corporate website.

These blogs are often created to appeal to the demographic that the company needs to court, and the content may have quite a lot to do with the activities of the corporation, or it may have very little to do with the company itself. Often, a corporate blog will focus on the kinds of content likely to attract the desired surfers, even if that content is not related to the product or service that the company provides.

Some bloggers feel that corporate blogging is a kind of validation for the blogging movement, and shows that this exciting new medium has really infiltrated the mainstream. Other bloggers consider the kind of viral marketing that corporate blogs practice to be unethical or distasteful. In any case, watching the evolution of corporate blogs and whether they survive and proliferate or fail and disappear promises to provide some interesting insight into today’s consumers.

The definition of blogging is something that is very

much in flux, as the new technologies that appear every

day redefine what a blog is, what a blog can be, and

what a blog should do. For many years, blogs were

defined as text-based websites that kept records of days,

similar to a captain’s log on a sailing ship. However,

this started to change as the group of people who kept

blogs became more diverse. The more bloggers began

to explore the limits of the medium and of the

technology that made it possible, the more the

boundaries of what could be called a “blog” expanded.

Today, there are an abundance of photo blogs, and there

are even video blogs as well. Mobile blogging devices

may well change the definition of blogging entirely by

making it possible for bloggers to create new kinds of

posts. Another element of the blogosphere that is

starting to redefine blogging is the corporate blog. As

more companies hire writers to keep blogs with the sole

purpose of creating positive buzz about their brand,

bloggers across the globe are arguing about whether

these manufactured blogs are really worthy of the name.

Between all of these different forces that are constantly

expanding and reshaping the blogosphere, it is difficult

to imagine that the definition of what is and is not a

blog will ever remain fixed for very long.

Blogging 101 is mostly about the blogging

vocabulary. To understand blogs, you need to know

the terms blog, platform, domain, and web host.

Once you have mastered these key elements of

blogging, you can enter any conversation about

blogging with confidence. After you know what

exactly a blog is, you will be on your way to

passing the final exam of blogging 101.

Blog is short for weblog, which simply means a

series of online posts presented in reverse

chronological order. That’s all! Most blogs are text,

but there are also photo blogs and video blogs. The

rest of blogging 101 has to do with the technical

side of things. If you are setting up a blog, you will

need a platform, a web host, and a domain. A

blogging platform is a computer software program

that allows you to write posts and to update your

blog. Your platform is also what you use to design

the look of your blog, from color scheme to font

size. The web host is sort of like the virtual file

cabinet where your blog is stored. Your computer

communicates with the host when you upload or

edit a post. The domain is the online address of

your blog, and usually ends in ‘dot com’. Now that

you know what a blog is, what a platform is, and

what domains and hosts are, congratulate yourself!

You have passed blogging 101.

If you run a small company, you may find that the world

of blogging for business owners is a world that you

want to be a part of. Blogging is a great way to get the

word out to consumers about your product or service,

and it can even be useful for inspiring employee loyalty

and helping you keep your workers at peak morale. If

you are looking for a way to take your business to the

next level, consider what starting a blog might be able

to do for you.

Blogging for business owners has a lot in common with

all other types of blogging, but it has its own unique

pitfalls and strengths. The key to having a successful

blog as a business owner is keeping your goals clear

and concrete at every step of your blogging adventure. It

can be all to easy to get sidetracked, especially if you

are just learning about the exciting possibilities of

blogging technology, but if you want your blog to

succeed you need to stay focused. Write up a plan for

how often you will update, how you will promote your

blog and retain readers, whether you will feature

photographs or video, and other aspects of your blog,

and then stick to it with the same kind of determination

that you used when you built your company.

The Pros and Cons of Video Blogging
September 28th, 2016 by Me2You

The Pros and Cons of Video BloggingVideo blogging has a lot of advantages over text-based blogging, and it is little wonder that this new technology is catching on all over the globe. Video blogs very effectively grab the attention of web surfers, and people are much more likely to become excited about the dynamic content of a video blog than they are likely to find a written posting very thrilling.

The more enthusiastic viewers are about a site, the quicker the word of mouth spreads, and the more traffic the site will get.

Of course, there are plenty of disadvantages to video blogging as well. Hosting a v-blog requires quite a bit of server space, which can make it difficult to get started. It takes more time to process and upload a video file than it does to dash off a quick bit of text, which means that running and updating a video blog can be quite a bit of work. In addition, web surfers sometimes grow frustrated with the slow loading times of the files on many video blogs.

Whether you opt for a video blog or not depends on what kind of subject matter you want to cover, and how much time you can devote to video blogging. Before you decide to pursue a video blog, consider if there is an easier way for you to get your message across.
