“A science? Come on man, it’s just blogging!”
It`s just blogging? Oh I beg to differ, my young Padawans. Blogging is indeed a science. One that many people give far less appreciation than it deserves. I honestly believe blogs are the “new media” kings of tomorrow. The demand for highly targeted traffic is on an uprising, whilst casual print and broadcast media is walking on wobbly legs.
“Blogopedia” aka The science of blogging is here.
We are entering a world where tweets, likes, shares, tags and pins will be a part of our everyday lives. Don`t try to run `n hide from it, cause it is inevitable. Long gone are the days of television and newspapers being the go-to source of “quality” information. The web has absolutely engulfed his predecessors, but yet they stay alive. How?
The uprising of the web in the past 15 years has had its ups and downs. The ups, being the commodity of having all the information a mind can bare, and much more, a couple of clicks away and in the comfort of your own home. Or wherever you might be at the time. Not to mention the fact it`s absolutely free. The downs on the other hand are shown in the form of the greatest information library mess known to man.
So the question everyone wants to ask “The grandfather of all knowledge” is surely something in the lines of “Where do I get the most relevant and quality information I desire?”
In the olden days old Grampy McSmart would say either “42” or perhaps suggest a visit to the Library of Alexandria. If the former two suggestions are new to your eyes, do not be troubled. It just shows you are neither a geek/nerd nor extremely old.
Today however the simple solution would be “Google it!” Google does offer by far the best results when it comes to search, but there is still something missing. That extra unff! That’s where blogs come into play.
Blogs are not made by robots (which in a certain sense Google is) but by human beings. Finding a GOOD blog, that talks about the subject you are searching for, will lead you to much better overall result, than just landing on a website where 1 out of a 1000 pages is covering the subject.
Bloggers (in most part) care! They put a lot of thought and work into their blog posts. The most successful ones try to input as much of themselves into their blog as possible. The difference between a good blog and a crappy blog is in THE CONTENT. The phrase “Content is key” is a well-used verse in the blogging/IM sector and, by all that is holly, its true!
Where does the science part come in?
The science behind Blogopedia lies in the details, as well as basics, many bloggers tend to neglect. It`s great to have passion, enthusiasm and to be well educated in the subject/niche you are writing in, but how to get that across to the reader is another story. So in essence, Blogopedia is tackling questions like:
- How to get the right readers on my blog?
- How to make sure, they will come back for more?
- How to interact with your readers?
- How to practice selective ignorance with spammers and haters?
- How to deal with criticism?
- How to keep your blog technically up to date and optimized?
- How to get the maximum exposure?
- How to monetize your blogs the best way possible?
- How to become an established author?
- …and much, much more!
So Blogopedia will cover all the aspects (technical, philosophical, social…) with the sole purpose of making you the best blogger you can be, hence making your blog a HIGH QUALITY BLOG!
It doesn’t matter, if you are a complete beginner or a seasoned blogger. Everyone will get plenty of quality information, which will help him/her reach new heights with their blog.
