The Power of Social Media

Blogging has become easier and more complex.

It is easier if you just want to share your thoughts.

It is more complex if you want to be a ‘successful blogger’ that says important things and makes some money.

Also, the best bloggers seem to have a niche.  The more specific one’s focus, the more likely that one can get ‘scoops’ and/or quickly comments on headlines.

I don’t fall into these traditional categories and that is a major reason why I haven’t started a blog before.  But I think this grey area also has some advantages.  Bloggers that are specialized, commercial-oriented, and/or biased for party or cause don’t appeal to average people.  And I think that getting people more involved will be important in the years ahead.
