Bloggers Rule the World

Isn't it amazing how many people have started blogging?. Indeed blogs have become so all-embracing that one can no longer brush off them. Take for example all these friends I have who run their own blogs: Coop, Warner, Gardner, Turner, Alvarez, Nicole, Helen Constantine, Mickey Temp, Sharon Steele, Kathy Bright, Casper DoGood, Dave Abigail. And then of course there are those who are running several services on their blogs. For instance: Tamale Pie, Directory Owners Blog, Web review, Major Major blog. Clearly the eon of the blogs is here.

The reason that TIME magazine chose YOU as the person of the year was because of the power of citizen journalism -- primarily driven by blogs. So, what are you awaiting? Go over to one of the free services like blogger or some other, or get your own word press blog.

What is very inviting about the blogosphere is the way you can actually generate an avalanche of a response to your thoughts. Just be true to yourself and post something that you truly believe in. And quite literally, the world can be yours.

Of course, if you are a tech-illiterate, you will face some initial hesitation in getting this entire process going. Not a problem, blogging technology is notoriously easy to use. In many senses it is an entry level CMS. Something like a content management system for the masses.

If you do not put together your own blog, then now is a good time to do so. Look at some of my other friends who run their own blogs: Joy, Kendall, Madlaine, Maria, Mike, Tyran, Noel, Ted, Terresa, Zoe, Ajeet, and get a good idea of what you could do.
