What is Blogging?
Blogging began in the late nineties. Since 9/11, a ton of new or re-centered sites redesigned the internet media environment. Today it’s found its way to being an essential part of online culture.
Think of it as a digital version of journaling. Journal entries evolved from journal log to web-log. Then from web-log it was shortened to blog (we(b-log).
People blog for reasons, such as writing about their personal experiences, getting money, to share knowledge, engaging customers, etc. The most common reason people blog is they get to write out their passion. Which should be the major reason for blogging for any blogger.
If you’re here, you have a passion for the plant – blogging offers an avenue to educate your audience and show a personable side to your brand while becoming a trusted spokesperson, and a valued member of the community.
Blogging Best Practices.
Blogs are updated frequently, meaning new content is added several times a week. And, they allow for the reader to engage through comments to discuss topics.
- Be conversational. Think of it as a two-way conversation.
- Be a storyteller. Remember Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
- Keep it under 400 words. Make it short and sweet.
Blogs are a strength. It’s 2021, and if you are a business owner who has not started a blog yet, it should be a primary goal for you.
As long as you have a passion to write about the topics that you love, people will feel the energy you have invested and value your work!
