Bloggers Rule the World

Isn't it amazing how blogging has really penetrated the market and now everyone wants a blog?. Indeed blogs have become so well-accepted that one can no longer discount them. Take for example all these friends I have who run their own blogs: DoGood, Coop, Warner, Gardner, Turner, Alvarez, Nicole, Helen Constantine, Mickey Temp, Dave Abigail, Kathy Bright, Sharon Steele. And then of course there are those who are running several services on their blogs. For instance: Major blog, Tamale Pie, Directory Owners Blog, Web review. Clearly the generation of the blogs is here.

The reason that TIME magazine selected YOU as the person of the year was because of the power of citizen journalism -- primarily driven by blogs. So, what are you stalling for? Go over to one of the free services like blogger or some other, or get your own word press blog.

What is very intriguing about the blogosphere is the way you can actually generate an avalanche of a response to your thoughts. Just be true to yourself and post something that you truly believe in. And quite literally, you are "the man" or "the woman" for that purpose.

Of course, if you are a technophobe, you will face some initial hesitation in getting this entire process going. Not a problem, blogging technology is notoriously easy to use. In many senses it is an entry level content management system. Something like a CMS for the masses.

If you do not publish your own blog, then now is a good time to do so. Look at some of my other friends who run their own blogs: Ajeet Khurana, Joy, Kendall, Madlaine, Maria, Mike, Tyran, Noel, Ted, Terresa, Zoe, and get a good plan for what you could do.
