The Rise Of Blogging As A New Way of Internet Marketing

As parents, have you been wondering what your children are up to online? If you think they are just using internet to do homework, chat or buy online and send emails, then you are sadly mistaken and probably way behind.

In the 90s when internet was launched, you are right. Now in 2010 when internet was already in advanced stage especially with iphones and ipads, these young people especially those in their teens, early and mid 20s are now using internet for multi-functional purposes.

Apart from social medias and web 2.0 like Facebook, Myspace, Twitter and Youtube for daily interaction with their friends, they enjoy blogging.

Blog has everything a person or even a child needs. Apart from being an online journal for reader to read what is on his mind, it practically allows him to elaborate in greater detail whatever he can think about but cannot explain well in actual public.

In essence, it is a simple term for web blog or online diary which consists of several article posts, photos, images and videos. How well or how badly they are written entirely depends on that persons instinct of describing things and writing skills be it informative, rational or irrational.

You do not need any technical skills to create great blogs. Sometimes simplicity works better than sophistication. All you need is passion to write on things you enjoy doing most and think can help others achieve the same success. Like cooking, driving, sewing etc.

It is okay to have grammar or vocabulary mistakes but do your best to minimize them even if there are no editors and publishing companies to check and approve your work.

With all these in mind, blogging should not be too difficult for you. Apart from just text and images, you can enhance your blog with appropriate audios or videos.

Videos can be of you talking or someone else. If you want to talk but am not comfortable looking at your face like me, you may consider doing powerpoint presentation with words and images too.

I have met successful bloggers like Alvin Phang and Rob Benwell. They have 2 blogs. One is for their internet marketing activities and the other is their personal blog. Though they are not born as bloggers, they are willing to learn and apply strategies which made them into what they are now.

Blogs are the best alternative to websites. You do not need to buy a web hosting account and domain name although it is advisable you buy one to make your blog address look more professional.

If you are someone who likes to have a site but do not know how to create websites and do not spend money to learn or outsource, you may want to consider blogs for a start. You can put different products be it your own or others but it is best to have them under a common niche like Forex, Home Based Business and Internet Marketing.

I will recommend those sites where you can get your free accounts and create your first blog. They are Blogger and WordPress. I prefer Blogger as it is much easier to use.
