    Post To Blog Or Not To Blog

    An article worth reading.

    With so much confusion online and an absence of "personal
    touch," blogs stand to actually bring back some humanity to
    the web by allowing people of like minds to come together.

    It's true and it's a very exciting thing. Someone with a great idea can now share that idea with others and start a discussion without having to travel all over the world to talk with others with similar interests. Unfortunately, there is a lot of noise and nonsense that clutters the ideas of the great thinkers out there.

    I couldn't agree more.
    I have been fascinated to see some negative feedback re blogs of late. People complaining about how they are just "the next thing" and that many of them are just full of crap.

    So don't read them...!!

    I say go the blog!

    I just started a few days ago...nobody even reads mine but I do feel better writing off some of the things I've posted so far. I think blogging is great. Watch, it will be in the psychology books in a few years.

    New blog looks interesting... you have probably already noticed increased traffic because of your signature on this topic... also try traffic exchange sites.... BlogExplosion is good.

    Is there really a point to have that many? Why can't you have the same content on one and have a much bigger blog? Explain to me because I just don't get it.
    Sure you can reach a bigger audience with one or more, but can't you do the same with one?

    Actually diversification has it's pros and cons. A bigger blog requires more management in terms of category and content classification where as smaller but targetted blogs/sites are best to attract niche audience. Built for specific keywords, these blogs can attract high paying ads as well.

    Having said that, I am working on a big blog site which will be a Mother of all other sites I have The idea is to provide all content at a single platform and syndicate it as required.

    Ah, right. That's not really what I was getting at. In the dashboard there is an Incoming Links section. Mine isn't working... I was wondering if anyone else was having issues with theirs.
