There are millions blogging the world over these days. Just go back a few years and we were talking online diaries and web logs. It was for the dedicated and self opinionated. Now business is in on the act. I like using the word press format myself though you could make the process even easier by going over to Blogger.com
Your subject could be just your personal thoughts but you want to target your audience in some way. This way you can structure everything you want to do before getting started and making an entry known as a post. When writing a post, there’s no need to write pages. Short and informative with a few longer posts will make it manageable.
There is now no need to rely on words alone. You can use photographs, audio and video. With WordPress you can get the code from YouTube.com if it is not disabled and link the video to your blog if relevant. This is a great thing to do and means you don’t need to be producing your own video, though that is something to consider in the future.
News blogs are becoming more popular, and if you’re interested in letting everyone get the gossip or anything else, take time in setting up this format.
You need a domain name if you want to be more professional, or if you have no resources set up a free news blog with blogger.com . Your content needs to be very relevant to the type of news feature you want to cover. An important facility for you to have is a comment box for feedback as this allows others to respond , while allowing more content to be added. The news could be local neighborhood information, events in a city. News just means you and others adding regular updates.
Social Media Buzz
There are a number of social media networking sites that will help you to make your website popular, and the three main sources that you’ll want to use include Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace. All sites can be joined without charge.
Google loves these sites for one single reason. They change constantly. Never static, all those people posting around the world means the Goggle bots are looking at them very frequently. What this now means is that content here will in the longer term, help you with search engine optimization.
