Shifting Beams of Light

The light seeps through the cloud covered sky, while rain drips like tears off the dying blooms of spring.

The disrupted reflections of life fade into the distance and into the past. Another day in paradise.

Finally at the bottom of the well of sadness, a gleam of hope slowly rises. A room alone for the first time in 40+ years awaits in the new month. Pessimism keeps emotions in check until the final bell rings dimly in the distance, a nearby church tolls the hour.

Blog Writing

Blogging has become quite a popular event for a lot of people online. Blog writing is effective and gives a personal touch to a specific theme and information that the reader is invited to comment on. This type of writing is an artistic approach that can be less formal than the normal article writing. It should, however, provide beneficial information to the reader. People express their views and feelings in blog writing. They make strong points that they may or may not agree with such as political viewpoints.

Blogs are first used to introduce who you are and then provide a forum to post vital information and receive good comments. Of course, you will get the occasional spam, but for the most part, people who comment are sincere and want to provide additional information. Blogs have been around since the 1990’s and have gradually become popular as people have realized the effectiveness of its use.

Owning a blog to post your articles is one of the best forms of advertising your product or service. Blogs are free resources. It is easy to set up. Blogspot and wordpress are the two most popular ones.

Blogging is similar to keeping a personal journal. People can identify with you more in your blog if you make it a personal or business affair. The theme of your blog depends on whether you will make it more personal or more businesslike.

Blogs have moved a little from the personal effect as more people began using it as a way to promote their businesses and provide good content. The search engines love blogs because they provide such fresh and honest content.

So more and more people are using blog writing to advertise their business. A business blog should have a specific theme and not be packed with different types of articles that are not similar. If you are selling health products, for examples, you should write about health and fitness. The information you provide on your blog will let the visitor see how knowledgeable you are. You will be considered an expert of your blog. Someone who visits your blog will want to buy from an expert.

You can syndicate your blog through RSS technology. Individuals can sign up to your RSS feed and get the latest post and articles directly in their email inbox. You can submit your blog to blog directories and RSS feed directories to get maximum exposure. The RSS feed directories will provide an avenue for more people to subscribe to your blog and get fresh content each day.

When writing for a blog, be sure to consider your audience first. Write around your product or service. You don’t have to write blatant sales messages. Research additional information and provide it to your readers, especially hard-to-find facts and benefits.

You also have the capability to use pictures in your blog and the visual aspect of your blog can prompt the visitor to make the purchase after reading your article posts.

Make your blog creative, interactive and interesting by posting articles that benefit the reader.
