Isn't it amazing how the humble blog has become all powerful? Indeed blogs have become so well-accepted that one can no longer circumnavigate them. Take for example all these friends I have who run their own blogs: Turner, Alvarez, Nicole, Helen Constantine, Mickey Temp, Sharon Steele, Dave Abigail, Kathy Bright, Casper DoGood, Edwina Warner, Eva Gardner, Charlene Coop. And then of course there are those who are running several services on their blogs. For instance: Major Major blog, Random Articles, Directory Owners Interview Blog, Web sites review. Clearly the era 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, the world can be yours.
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If you do not publish your own blog, then now is a good time to do so.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: Madlaine Made, Maria Robins, Mike Horner, Tyran Mike, Noel Page, Ted Nestle, Terresa Hopkins, Zoe Martini, Ajeet Khurana, Joy, Kendall, and get a good idea of what you could do.
