to bring you some insight I’ve received on blogging and the future of the internet. There is an awful lot of garbage out there. Portal sites carrying the same paragraph three times and every Google ad with those words will lose favor no matter how much they pay for SEO. People are truly looking for content and the ability to enjoy immediate gratification means they can find the good stuff. The good stuff is the truth. It’s the way people really think. You get the best view of things from people who truly love what they do. This is not a profession yet. Bloggers are just beginning to enjoy compensation. But it will be. So print journalists have no fear. You will find gold.
Every corporation, product every, every person will be identified by a blog in some form or another. Having a brand that people can interact with will be the best way to sell anything. That will include using video, games, newsletters and other content. Everyone is vying for a piece of land of this Wild West show. And the strongest, the most honest, and the most creative will find that gold.
Hop on the wagon train.
My thoughts are brought to you by the panel discussion I attended by Women in Social Media. My thanks go to Neha Chauhan, Jordon Reid, Casey Carter, Meghan Muntean and Alexa Hirschfeld for their inspiration.
