In the middle 1990’s everyone started talking about needing a website. Now, the new “must have” is a web log or blog. While blogs can come in all shapes and sizes, a blog is just a very simple way to publish a journal, record of events, thoughts, ideas or whatever the author wants to write about. A blog sits on a website – whether that site is run by you or managed by a company that will “host” your blog.
Blogs were initially set up so that people had a place on the Internet where they could create sort of an online diary or journal. They had a place to tell their stories and share with their friends and families. Now, of course, we have social networking sites like Facebook, which is easy to use and performs all the functions most social Blogs were created for.
Blogging stomped the competition when it came to society listening to the news man or the next blog. The business world found new ways to advertise and draw others to their company. Many of them developed there own blogging service to compete with the new competition.
Add anchor text to your personal blog – embedded links that take readers to the exact page of your web site that sells the product or service under discussion on the blog. This helps visitors find the information on site without having to return to the home page and start clicking on navigation links.
One of the most important things to do when trying to keep up with multiple blogs is managing time. Bloggers need to budget their time and make sure enough time is being spent on each blog. Some of them may need more updating then others so how time is divided will depend on the bloggers. A blog that is made up of opinions and thoughts, are usually easier than a blog that requires research. Also, one blog may have to be updated every day while another only has to be updated weekly. Bloggers may want to schedule out specific time to spend on each blog in order to keep them all update and successful.
The term weblog was invented by Jorn Barger in 1997, but it was shortened to Blog by Peter Merholz in 1999. The word blog may have actually been a typo. Peter used the phrase ‘we blog’ in the sidebar of his weblog. Blogs started popping up more often on the Internet in 1999, and in March of 2003, the Oxford English Dictionary added the words weblog, weblogging, and weblogger to the dictionary.
More importantly, a quality dofollow blog subscription service will monitor the comments made and prohibit auto-commenting with software. Violators are removed from the membership. This oversight maintains the integrity of the comments and increase the chances the blogs retain dofollow commenting.
