So we are smack dab in the middle of the information age. Some might say that we are drowning in information. No one company, organization, or individual has control over how information is dispersed…we are living in an information free-for-all. So why not get in on it??
Blogs provide an easy outlet for content creation. You have something to say? Say it in a blog. Do you have access to interesting data or information on a specific subject? Why not blog about it? Have a business that you would like to promote? A blog is a cost-effective way to advertise, and also to share your vision with your current and future customers. What about personal updates? Families are finding blogs to be the perfect venue for keeping friends and family abreast of all that is going on in their lives. It is also a great way to share pics and videos.
If you use the internet on a regular basis, chances are you are getting at least some portion of your information from a blog. Interestingly, sometimes blogs are even the preferred medium for info. Whereas the monopoly of daily newspapers gave way to up-to-the-minute news web sites years ago, even those have had to take a backseat to immediate news from the front lines – – bloggers who see the stories up close and tell about them first hand. Company marketers and advertisers have lost their influence compared to multiple product review bloggers who can make or break a new mp3 player or a new restaurant in town. These user-based reviews tend to have much more impact on the consumer than the biased descriptions written by distributors. And blogging can have an incredible impact. Grass root movements have been known to blossom overnight after one well-written blog post.
Now is the time to be part of the information age in a real way. Bloggers have the opportunity to express themselves, to promote themselves or their causes, and to deliver information like never before. We all want to be heard. We want to matter. And starting a blog is such a simple way to get in on the action. If you are new to the world of blogging, you would probably want to take our free introductory blogging course, Get Ready To Blog.
