Blogs in Plain English

Blogs in Plain English

You’ve seen the word, you’ve seen the web
sites and you may even have one. But have you ever wondered: What’s the big
deal about blogs? To make sense of blogs, you have to think
about the news and who makes it. We’ll look at news in the 20th vs. the 21st
century to make our point. In the 20th century, the news was produced
professionally. When news happened, reporters wrote the stories
and a tiny group of people decided what appeared in a newspaper or broadcast. Professional news was mainstream: general
and limited. The 21st century marked the point where news
became both professional and personal. A new kind of web site called a weblog or
blog came onto the scene that let anyone be a reporter and publisher – often for free. As blogs became popular, they created millions
of news sources and gave everyone an audience for their own version of news. Of course, we’re using the word “news” loosely. But really – isn’t everything news to someone? With a blog…A business owner can share news
about his business A mother can share news about her family
Or a sport star can share news with fans These people are all “bloggers”. How did this happen? Well, blogs made sharing news on the web easy. Anyone with an idea can start a new blog with
the click of a button and share news minutes later. Here’s how blogs work. Blogs are websites that are organized by blog
posts – these are individual news stories, like articles in the paper. Bloggers simply fill out a form like this
one to post a new story. With the click of a button, the blog post
appears at the top of the web page, just above yesterday’s news. Over time, the blog becomes a collection of
these posts, all archived for easy reference. Also, Each blog post can become a discussion
through comments left by readers. Blogs make the news a two way street. But really, the fuss is not about how blogs
work – it’s about what people like you do with them that matters. Let’s say you have a blog about green living
and outdoor photography. It reflects your unique perspective. This helps you build relationships with your
readers and other bloggers with similar interests. Speaking of relationships, bloggers often
work together. In addition to comments,You’ll read each other’s
posts, quote each other and link your blogs together. This creates communities of bloggers that
inspire and motivate each other. Whether it’s their ease of use or the opportunities
they offer, blogs have been adopted in a very big way. Since 2003, there have been over 70 million
blogs created, each with it’s own version of news. So, the big deal about blogs is that they
gave people like you the power of the media and created a personal kind of news that appeals
to a high number of small audiences. So, it’s up to you – what will you do with
this new power? There is likely a group of people out there
who want to hear what you have to say.

It has kept us all connected to her and her growing children. Since then, other family have started blogs as well.

Blogging is a great way for a person to express themselves within their creative interests. I hope you grow up someday and get out of your negative attitude toward others who share a positive attitude toward creativity and expression.

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

  20. Blogging is creative and lots of research.  Not always easy editing your elements tend to duplicate online. Putting the material into blog you need to plan it firstly and do a layout it then makes it easier to be published.Freezes a lot online. cheers Marg

  21. I'm glad you made this video Common. Its is very useful to those getting into blogging.

  22. Guys, I've got a question: I've got this idea. If I start up a wordpress blog based mainly on video/speech transcripts I write and translate, or articles I translate to different language for other non-English-speaking people, does it count as a violation of copyright and it cannot be monetized? (despite mentioning source or owner?) Blog posts would contain a lot of my own words and point of view, but still… Thank you.

  23. Blogs do help with extra money.

Piensa en lo que quieres que ocurra con esta persona en la siguiente semana y repítelo para ti 6 veces. Ahora piensa en lo que quieres con esa persona y dilo una vez. Y ahora di Rayo de luz, yo te invoco para que desentierres a (G) de donde este o con quien este y le hagas llamarme hoy mismo enamorado y arrepentido. Desentierra todo lo que esta impidiendo que (G) venga a mi (C). aparta a todos los que contribuyan a que nos apartemos y que solo piense en mi (C). que el me llame ..Gracias, por tu misterioso poder que siempre cumple con lo que se pide esto lo hago con mucha fe Luego tienes que publicar la oración tres veces, en tres sitios diferentes.

Gabriel para anunciar a ti MGSV mi nombre SVG que soplen al oído la palabra amor y te acuerdas de mí SVG anuncio a su ángel de la guarda. Rafael para que utilice el bálsamo curativo para sanar la desconfianza que se ha desarrollado en tu corazón, y para mantener abierta la cicatriz del amor y el deseo hacia mí SVG Que así sea.

  35. [email protected] watched this video and learned how to read a blog and ponder the bigger blogging picture, of unified bloggers all agreeing in heavenly harmony… a division of elite bloggers jumping from aircraft with their tablets in hand…a 21st century of streamlined, artificial …homogenized and fully insured closely monitored research.
