So What is the Consternation About Blogs?

By Jeff DeCleff

Where once there were limited opportunities for publishing articles now there is a flood. With the growth of the Net comes the development of the Blog - the likelihood for any person with an agenda to scribe their thoughts, feelings, issues, rants and raves to the sphere of individuals that make up their sub group.

This world sphere is now not restricted to school chums or interest groups within a set location, but a global audience who may StumbleUpon and Digg your copy bringing ever growing networks to enhance your social voice, your platform.

Therefore , it is no surprise that social media communities like Facebook and Twitter are successful; as new generations of creative writers come to the front looking to generate their own platform the attraction of this virtual world of broadcasting seems infinite.

There are lots of promises of wealth (affiliate internet marketing, banner adverts, paid guest blogs) to bait the credulous. Yet the realms of exact and virtual are colliding with countless bloggers, social media managers, and other online expert roles filling the job ads. Standard firms are welcoming the new age technology, looking to hook directly into the online broadcasting audience and see these up and coming virtual socialites as a sound investment for gaining traction in the online world.

Actually online is here for good - at least while we still have electricity (otherwise we might have to resort to smoke signals and accept a far more local audience). But with the online culture comes the loss of normal limits, no longer are we country based, but Like based. We are branded together by groups, pages and supporters instead of nationalities, races and sex.

The fuss of blogging is just that - the chance to add commentary to this virtual world. Sure bloggers may be a bit raw, may not follow the company line but that is the fuss, it's social views without the editor, not reactive to the company policy but a personal view. It's the chance to voice an opinion - but like the surfeit of stories media, discovering which blogs are good sources of information becomes the most difficult task for the instant future.
