They say blogging is for the extension of information to a wide public that ranges from factual information to emotionally driven information. Blogging can take the form of formal and informal vernacular and diction throughout the entire article. Is it the diversity of blogs that has increased their popularity or is it something more?
Blogs have become more and more popular over the past few years thanks to the ability to have wide spread outreach due to the numerous social media sites. Posts with links to blogs are commonly shared on other social media sites if it is a topic of interest.
Topics of blogs can range from factual data about an event or company, to opinion based articles and even stretching to personal recounts of one’s life. The interesting thing about blogs is that they are limitless as to the content they can contain!
Readers choose to click on blog links because they are excited about the possibility of what the blog can contain. It can contain a list of top 10 reasons why football is great or the 5 worst recipes ever featured on Top Chef.
Blogs create an outlet for businesses to connect with their readers in a way that can not be done with other print media easily. More businesses need to take advantage of the blog phenomenon and start creating articles to better engage their clients.
