What are Blogs for?
In an increasingly technological world, knowledge can be acquired in many different ways. Nowadays, information is literally at your fingertips. All it takes is opening up a browser and typing in whatever resonates in your head. Among these mediators for knowledge are blogs. Both interactive and instructional, they are claiming an important role in the transmission of information.
Why is maintaining a blog an important skill?
The first blog was published in 1944 by a student called Justin Hall. On his page, Justin simply shared his ideas and talked about various topics. The expression weblog was first coined in 1997. It was later converted, in 1999, to blog. Currently, blogs are a useful tool that facilitate a presence on the internet. They can attract potential clients and engage with an audience.
Blogs create waves of activity around a company that can potentially lead to the arrival of clients. Business rises thanks to articles that demonstrate a degree of experience and authority of a company in a given sector. In fact, organisations are 13 times more likely to get a positive outcome out of an investment if they fund a quality blog.
For personal blogs, an investment isn’t necessary. It can be done through WordPress. However, profit would not be made from this, if it is what one is looking for. If the idea is to maintain a blog with your own server and owner’s name, a fee will have to be paid. This depends on the web host being used.
Where to start in the blogging world?
To initiate activity in a blog (and later publish it), money can be invested to trigger the process. However, it is recommended to use social media, such as Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest, to bolster its visibility. At the start, Google will not place an unknown blog at the top of the suggestion list. With time, and increasing presence through other means, it will gradually climb up the ladder. It is essential to vary your content, as to attract a wider audience. Profiles should be kept up to date to inform, closely to the blog
