Starting out with Blogging

Today I have been researching articles on blog writing.  I enjoyed the post by @PoLRBlog http://econsultancy.com/uk/blog/7448-25-reasons-why-you-should-be-blogging#blog_comment_58878 .

If you are in business or have a cause you wish to promote via social media, then this article may help prompt you to start blog writing, or reinvigorate you if you have become weary.

For those just starting out make use of WordPress, Blogger and TypePad.

Useful sources of articles to write blogs on are:

  • Google alerts
  • Twitter Search
  • Mashable
  • Alltop.com
  •  Stufftotweet.com
  •  Popurls.com
  • Pressit.com

There should be at least one article you find of interest and can blog about.  This promotes integration which @wenbryant is keen to foster within the industry and to quote @Klout, your amplification and network will be developed.   It will also ensure you keep abreast of what is happening in your industry.  I think this is a great discipline to develop in an industry as fast paced as Social Media.

There is great power in a great infographic used in a blog.  As seen here in Eileen Brown’s blog.   http://eileenbrown.wordpress.com/  .

These are a few of the things I have managed to glean today.  Let me know if there was anything of interest to you, or if you have any tips/advice for myself.

  1. Wonderful website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any user discussion forums that
    cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get comments from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Bless you!

    • Hi there, the forums/groups I join are generally on LinkedIn. The other thing I do is to run searches in Twitter, Google Alerts, Topsy as mentioned in the article. I find Twitter a great source of information on topics of interest. Happy blogging : )
