What is Blogging: The New Form of Journalism
Before you go into blogging, you should be sure you are the kind of person that can come up with great ideas. you should be one who can captivate an audience with stories, whether it is about yourself, a place, or an incident that happened anywhere in the world. If you want to be heard , or you generally have a passion for writing, you should seriously consider blogging.
Apart from being a window for the readers to see what is on the author’s mind, a blog lets the author elaborate on facts or scribble out whatever idea that pops out his head. A blog is a simplified term for “web blog”-a new generation medium for writing articles, essays, statements and the like.
It’s usually composed of texts or sometimes pictures and multimedia topics. If you’re tired or fed up of jotting down the details of your life’s worth on paper, then you should think of trying the new fad of journalism which is blogging. Blogging literally means sharing a comment of life through the internet.
It is an up-to-date source. A sequence of events. A timeless exhibit of creativity and style. An outlet for one’s self.
The popularity of blog comes in different areas.
Anyone can write anything that comes out of his head. Whether a walk in the park on a sunny day, a dip into California’s wild waters, or an epic night out with friends. Its like a diary and is readily updated. What’s good about blogging is that it is not bounded by editing and is cheap.
The commercial velocity of a blog depends on a writer’s instinct to create a worthy article. Either formative or informative, rational or irrational, for as long as the readers can visualize what the author has posted, your blog’s a hit.
It is not necessary to have technical specialties and skills, Publishing freedom is an advantage. All you need is a witty mind, a desire to share ideas, part of your story, and a bit of knowledge to toggle into the internet.
Grammatical errors are welcome.
No editors and publishing companies to please. Journalism without rules or guidelines to follow and what’s best is that readers could post a comment or be inspired to write one too.
If you have the right recipes you will find that blogging is quite easy. It does not have to be a simple-text article, a blog may be enhanced or converted into other types like a video blog or an audio blog.
Nowadays, blogs are more sophisticated and advanced.
A standard blog should start from a good and captivating headline down to the author’s personal profile. then comes the blog post, permalink (combined term for “permanent link”), and the reader’s comments.
I have a blogger friend who posts blogs on her web page to entertain herself. She told me that blogging is an advantage for her to speak up to the world of the things that’s keeping her shut. And I quote, “I am an internet junkie. I am not a big fan of journalism or any kind of writing.
But when the blogging fever entered the internet society it all changed . I appreciated it more when I felt everything that’s written are real and not just a compulsory decoy to deliver information. Right then, I became a part of a bigger picture.”
Being in a world of unwanted opinions, blogging is a benefit or and advantage. But everything that has an advantage has a disadvantage.
Blogs are much harder to manage than that of the broadcast media. They could be considered as a political misfit In politically sensitive issues, Results are triggered through suppression of bloggers and they were punished. Defamation and Liability is another grave case.
Nevertheless, blogging is still out there. So if you’re the type of person who has a passion for writing, then try blogging. give it a shot. You never know how much you could contribute to the society through it,and to your pockets too.
