Blogging Is The Way To Go

Isn't it amazing how many people have started blogging? Indeed blogs have become so universal that one can no longer ignore them. Take for example all these friends I have who run their own blogs: Helen Constantine, Mickey Temp, Sharon Steele, Dave Abigail, Kathy Bright, Casper DoGood, Charlene Coop, Edwina Warner, Eva Gardner, Glenn Alvarez, Jane Nicole, Gina Turner. And then of course there are those who are running several services on their blogs. For instance: Web review, Major Major blog, Random Articles, Directory Owners Interview Blog. Clearly the day of the blogs is here.

The reason that TIME magazine chose YOU as the person of the year was because of the power of citizen journalism -- primarily driven by blogs. So, what are you wasting your time for? Go over to one of the free services like blogger or some other, or get your own word press blog.

What is very lovely about the blogosphere is the way you can actually generate an avalanche of a response to your thoughts. Just be true to yourself and post something that you truly believe in. And quite literally, the world can be yours.

Of course, if you are a non-tech person, you will face some initial hesitation in getting this entire process going. Not a problem, blogging technology is notoriously easy to use. In many senses it is an entry level CMS. Something like a content management system for the masses.

If you do not possess your own blog, then now is a good time to do so. Look at some of my other friends who run their own blogs: Madlaine Made, Maria Robins, Mike Horner, Tyran Mike, Noel Page, Ted Nestle, Terresa Hopkins, Zoe Martini, Ajeet Khurana, Joy, Kendall, and get a good idea of what you could do.
