I’d imagine that until you’ve blogged from space, you’ve lost all bragging rights. Anousheh Ansari, who recently became the first female private space explorer, takes a break from watching a few of the 32 sunsets and sunrises to blog about what it’s like up there – and to give the Googleplex a call.
When Sprint sent an LG Fusic phone to a blogger in hopes he would write about it and Sprint’s new Power Vision Network, they may have understood the slight possibility he would write a negative review. But they probably didn’t expect 3,100 words (seven pages) about how much he hated both.
We all know Internet experts agree that blogs are among the most effective marketing tools currently available. In fact, it would not be overstepping reality to say that blogs are actually among the most powerful marketing strategies ever to have been invented.
Nothing really grabs the blogosphere as much as itself. It sounds like a Friday night crisis, but it’s less lonely than that. Can we call it collective individualism? Should we employ Shakespeare, Nietzsche, or Jung when considering that 37% of bloggers say they are their own favorite subject? Does it change things if over half of them are anonymous?
There are many ways to make your blog a successful one. Blog writers put a lot of work in their writing and for the most part, want readers to visit.
According to the findings of JupiterResearch, corporate blogging is about to become big – really big. It seems these expectations may be impossibly optimistic, as a matter of fact. But JupiterResearch believes that “nearly 70 percent of all site operators will have implemented corporate blogs by the end of 2006.”
PubSub CTO Bob Wyman was never one to pull punches. And though the blogosphere has been a store window for many companies, Wyman’s latest blog entry detailing not just that the company is days from bankruptcy, but chronicling the internal political struggles between himself and the CEO, has some wondering at what point transparency becomes the medium of aired dirty laundry.
Bloggers are writing about their day jobs, and it’s getting some of them in trouble. An increasing number of companies are adopting policies that would prohibit bloggers from discussing their workplace, with termination as one possible result. In most cases, the law is backing the corporations up.
Who knew blogging could be so perilous – especially for aburger flipper? Los Angeles resident and former ground beef extraordinaire, Bill Poon (hold your immature jokes, please), reports that he was fired from his job last week because of a MySpace parody blog about the company president.
It seems like every time you turn your head these days you hear something about Google. Definitely a force to be reckoned with, Google is king online. Although they’re known mostly as a search engine, they provide many other helpful services to today’s website owner.
With any topic, there are believers and nonbelievers, and the rest float, agnostically bounced from pundit to protestor. The role of the blog in corporate communication channels is no exception. An open door is a chink in the armor; a human voice is a liability.
You know, doing the PR blogger tour – or, well, just meeting other PR bloggers at a few past PR events – people ask me “why are you so hell bent on issues” or “what does it matter” when speaking about PR blogging, and the purity and honesty I demand from myself (at least try) and I demand of others.
Though it’s been said that bloggers aren’t held to quite the same standards as journalists, if you become a popular blogger, the crowd better see you as legit-transparency in the second evolution of the Web is becoming a survival skill. Blogging is about sticking it to the Man, and if it appears you’ve been bought (under a pretense of the opposite), you’ll be called on your treachery.
Google has been busy paving roads from the PC to the mobile phone. The most recent collaboration came from a partnership with Sony Ericsson to pre-load Google’s Blogger and Web Search features on three new lines of handsets. The companies say they are the first to provide a pre-loaded blog application.
