The quickest way to get started on publishing on the web, 8 out of 10 people would agree, is blogging. Blogging is very effective in communicating, especially afterÂ the entry into the era of web 2.0. People have come together to urge a globalÂ community to form. Ideas are more easy than ever to share and spread. Most bloggers are happy blogging,Â showing offÂ their personalities, writing for the world to read, and reaching to an audience that’s interested in him or her. Content put online has exploded to its double, triple, and even more. These are exactly the essence of web 2.0. That is.
We power the Web.
Money is being made through blogging, too. AÂ considerable smallÂ portion of those who blog are earning a decent living by blogging alone. Yes. Many are full time bloggers, like dear Darren Rowse. Although most of us can’t afford giving up daily jobÂ and maintainÂ a career like this, blogging in your spare time does make your life better. And others.
Everyone is unique. Everyone has something to offer to the community. Contribute what you know, help others as you can, and you’ll be rewarded. Web is the best boss I know of as of now. He’s smart, unbiased,Â knows the answers to almostÂ allÂ your questions; rewards hard work and creativity. Work for him, and you won’t regret it.
Get noticed today, if you don’t have a blog yet, start one! Talk anything you like, your newly bought climbing gear, your annoying little brother or the book you just read. As you keepÂ reading other people’s blogs and writing your own, you will be more clear in where you are heading. WhatÂ to express, whatÂ your blog is going to be like and how to make people excited about what excites you!
Blogging systems I would recommend to first time bloggers,Â are Google BloggerÂ and WordPress.com. AsÂ 2 maturely developed blogging systems,Â theyÂ are both free, and justify theirÂ incredible popularity with full-fledgedÂ features andÂ easy to useÂ functionalities. Signing up is as simple as 3 steps, very probablyÂ in 5 minutes, you will beÂ struggling to figure out what to say in your first post that declares your presence to the online world. Don’t panic in case you can rarelyÂ put together enoughÂ to talk about, and don’t worry about what other people might think of it. It’s normal. However, sticking on it will eventually pay off, bothÂ socially and financially.
Just speak out!
Writing is a good way to organize your thought, it keeps you smart along with discussion with other people.Â Your thoughts are precious. Write them down, and be confident of them. In this way, you grow and your blog develops.
