This is neither my first post, nor I’m actually welcoming you to this space. If you know me from your social media circles (which has a fair chance, nobody else appears here), you might think that I’m trying to be funny. Honestly, I’m not.
Why would I want you guys to read this? It’s a free blog on WordPress. A platform which does an awesome job of making blogging easier than buying a good pair of shoes. Although, like any other business – the primary objective is to earn money. (I know they will say differently – and most probably “consumer satisfaction” is the anonymous reply as far as businesses are concerned).
Lets not deviate from the topic too much – I was stating that wordpress.com makes blogging easy, but it limits its usage too. There is a restriction on space, earning and everything. This free version of WordPress has just been made to let people express, and nothing more. Then, there’s the wordpress.org is the best blogging platform which allows blogging with utmost professionalism, but then it needs more time and effort than any other blogging platform. Although, the platform is a heaven for those who choose to be “serious” bloggers.
Which brings me to Blogger – what more can anyone say? The once “next big thing” hasn’t evolved like it was expected too. And, it’s more like “some of this – some of that” phenomenon now. Although, it’s still popular as it still integrates well with Google, and is easier managed than a wordpress.org blog, allowing less (much less) limitations than a wordpress.org blog. It will continue to be used, until Google thinks it’s time. You never know with Google. Remember Google reader, and all the mess happening (or not happening) with Google+. We will and should continue with #FixThePlus but it’s not profitable for ’em. So, we will have to accept, whatever is served to us.
Tumblr, SquareSpace, Medium and more than 24 blogging platforms exist as well. Then vlogging is another option too. All having its limitations, all its uncertainties. Now, if you are a blogger reading this. Guys – EVOLVE is the word for you. The internet boom came, it shook the world, but it’s after a decade and a half – matters are really about to shake wild.
If you’re looking to earn from blogging. Keep an eye on ad-blockers, it’s a game changer, but then we all know how difficult earning from AdSense is. The next thing is affiliate marketing, and if you aren’t into its details, you should be.
If you’re a writer, you shouldn’t be worrying about all this, but I hate how much ignorant writers are about the alternative mediums about promoting their books. Create PPT presentation peeps, share to SlideShare, create quizzes for GoToQuiz, and really think out of the box. As good as G+, Twitter and Facebook are, they’re not the only thing you should be checking out in the mornings.
Now, if you are just another cool peep as me – #Chillax. Have fun looking at all of our fellow humans struggle their ways to make their dream space on the Web. But, we also have our problems, don’t we? Anyways, I will have fun looking at the stats for this post, and really people hitting my site does make me HAPPY. I know I said otherwise at the start, I even used “honestly” but you should always believe the “latest” word, shouldn’t you? That’s what all of us do with politicians.
If I being a novice myself have to give an advice on Social Media – It will be that don’t get STUCK to one platform. Explore your opportunities, and I’m pretty confident with what I’m saying.
Side notes: I’m 3% fluent in French now. I love WordPress even more. If you didn’t read up until here, you s*ck. But, then you did, right?
Side notes (2): I call myself a blogger, and a writer too. I hope no one has an objection. I’m in the middle of writing a book (not exactly middle, but still #AmWriting), and I still post on this blog, at least once a month. So you see, just wish me luck. See you in the next post. If you haven’t had enough already.
Bonjour! (Good day in French)😎
[Now those who know that I have used this image before, or wondering if the picture goes well with the theme of the post. Well, please don’t think too much. I was finding a tough time uploading an image to my WordPress app. So, i took a shortcut, and used an earlier one. I’m too smart. Okay. A fresh image next time is guaranteed. Thanks for your time. It’s really appreciated, and you don’t know the happiness you provide me by reading this :’). Bye.]
