I feel like I am behind when it comes to social media. In my last post I talked about how little I knew about FourSquare and other platforms like it. For this post I will be blogging about how inexperienced I am when it comes to blogging. I have only had a blog because I have had classes that required it. It was interesting for me to research more about it and read some tips on how to be a better blogger.
I started with the most basic question, "What is a blog?", after reading a short article on problogger.net I realized that a blog is simpler then I was thinking. It really is just a chronological collection of a persons thoughts. I personally made blogging much more complicated in my mind, for the longest time blogs were a little abstract and intimidating to me. After reading the article it helped me to realize that a blog is nothing to be intimidated by!
I was also interested in some tips to create a blog that people will want to read. There are a ton of websites dedicated to tips on blogging. One in particular was really cool, it had tips on how to customize your blog with different colors, videos, pictures, all sorts of different things. It explained the difference between HTML and XHTML, there is a search bar that you can use to search any topic that you have a question about, and chances are this blog has the answer. The blog is Tips For New Bloggers I learned a lot of cool new information about blogging from this blog.
