In the middle 1990’s everyone started talking about needing a website. Now, the new “must have” is a web log or blog. While blogs can come in all shapes and sizes, a blog is just a very simple way to publish a journal, record of events, thoughts, ideas or whatever the author wants to write about. A blog sits on a website – whether that site is run by you or managed by a company that will “host” your blog.

Blog about other products – You can make money by blogging about product reviews! This is because of affiliate marketing that some companies employ to widen their market. Through your My About me profile, people can directly click the link to a company so they can purchase directly. As a result, you will get paid for bringing in a customer.

When you search for WoW related online blogs or blogs that mention World of Warcraft, you might find that there are so many, you don’t know how you will keep up with all of them or go through them properly. This is why you can make use of helpful features such as RSS feeds. This will allow you to view all of your favorite WoW blogs through a feed reader to scan the headlines first and see what you want to read over.

On the other hand, I say this with a sheepish smile, since Blogs are free, I set up another blog in Google for my family and friends where I simply post pictures of the family and news about them. This I have no need to be picked up by web Business profiles search engines and just pass out the URL to my kids and close friends. Which is another way to use blogs.

Because blogs are designed to be easily updated and are already on a website (don’t worry you don’t need to know ANYTHING about websites or web design to start one), you may find a blog could replace or supplement an email newsletter. They are easier to do, easier to update, and you don’t have to worry about emails getting delivered!

Facebook Fan Pages have another MAJOR benefit compared to profiles. All of their content and online blogs the page itself can be shared by any person or by any other page. Individual profiles and status updates from individual profiles can not be shared by other users. The majority of businesses use Fan Pages so when you have an individual profile for your business it does not allow other businesses to follow you.

If they listed their online social networking accounts (like Facebook and Twitter), add them as friends or follow them on twitter. Online friends are fantastic because it starts spreading. As they share stuff that you share, THEIR friends will get to know more about you too and visit your blog. This is how, essentially, online social networking works.

OMake your blog searchable through your interests. Many blog programs allow you to create a user profile, which allows readers to search for you and your blog by interest topic and locations, in many cases. Do not overlook this simple way to draw readers. Simply fill out your profile, taking care to use many “interests” to attract more readers and browsers.
