Aside from the assistance I try to provide other bloggers through this blog, I actually do help a few bloggers hands-on. Unfortunately, I don’t get to spend as much time to do that as I’d like to – I have to work to pay the bills. Yesterday I took the day off and attended a regional web conference. The conference was fantastic, a compact day full of 1 hour sessions that were jam-packed with information from web professionals.
The beginner blogging session was packed! When you’ve been blogging for over a year, you forget that many people aren’t exposed to blogs or the underlying technologies. One of the best questions of the session was, “How can I tell the difference between a blog and another website.” I really had to think for a minute, then explained that you may not be able to tell the difference anymore. Many new websites incorporate blogging as a standard of the content section. Of course, sites like mine ‘look’ like a blog – with a collection of journal posts on the home page in reverse chronological order… but some others don’t even come close!
Кой трябва да е блогър?
Друг чудесен въпрос беше да зададем как блоговете могат да помогнат в нетехнически или политически индустрии. Блоговете се отдават на политика заради широко разпространената истерия и пари в брой. Блоговете винаги са се отдавали добре на технологиите, защото, да си признаем, успешният блогър обикновено изисква висока способност за технология. Блогове може абсолютно съдействайте във всяка индустрия! Най-новите блогове и системи за управление на съдържанието са автоматизирали много от опциите, които някога са били ръчни.
My friend, Glenn, blogged while on a mission in Mozambique. I’m surprised that religion and philanthropists haven’t adopted blogging more. Блогове на Фред Уилсън about being a Venture Capitalist. I’m surprised at all of the industries that don’t blog, either. Why don’t scientists blog and share their discoveries? Why don’t retailers blog about store openings, customer service, and specials? Why doesn’t the President blog? (No one listens to the stupid radio show!) Why don’t Police blog and talk about the difference they are making in the community? Why don’t teachers blog and share their day to help students and parents? They really need to be!!!
Блог и система за управление на съдържанието Конвергенция
An example of a website that doesn’t look anything like a blog is CNET, Най- новинарския раздел на CNET truly is a blog in every sense of the word. The articles are in reverse chronological order and each of the articles has a permalink, incorporates links, comments, pings, and even some social bookmarking links. But it’s a news site!?
Системите за управление на съдържанието догонват блоговете ... или обратно. Доставчиците на уеб приложения разпознават SEO предимствата на блоговете и са интегрирали тези функции в своите приложения. Но все още не са решили много от проблемите! Вчера аз писа за фокусиране върху силните си страни, за да бъдеш успешен.
Blogging is no different. There’s a lot to leveraging the technology, and a lot to leveraging your content. Many people write fantastic blogs with incredible content but their site fails to grow… not because it’s a bad blog, but because the blogger doesn’t understand and exploit the technology to attract new readers.
Коучинг в блогове
От любопитство погледнах в гугъл Коучинг в блогове. I’m not going to name names, but I reviewed about a dozen of the sites of those companies or individuals that classified themselves as ‘Blog Coaches’. Not a single one of them talked about the actual technology! In reviewing the details, most “Blog Coaches” were simply copywriters and brand strategists. No doubt that these are essential elements of a corporate brand, but geesh.
I suppose it’s like racing a car and never actually shifting gears. Your engine is revving as fast as it can, but everyone else is flying by you and you can’t understand why! You really need a coach that understands how the entire car works if you want to win the race, not just how to drive. You need someone who is going to squeeze every last bit of speed and power out of the blog AND the blogging software. My success with blogging has really been a combination of the two. I realize that at times I do not write well, but I make up for it by tweaking every ounce of horsepower out of my engine.
