Start Blogging

Ok. For all of you guys and galls who want to kiss and tell, or just want to let the whole world know what you are all about, or whatever you wanna halla ‘bout, a blog is a very good way to start.

The thing is, you want to be seen and heard (otherwise you would not be doing this would you?). So, how do you start?

I have created blogs on a lot of platforms just for the fun of it when I know I don’t have enough time to update all of them (See my previous entry and there are more than I mentioned in it).

The thing is, there are different ways to start, and there are even more places to start. I found that if you want to be seen or heard, you have to make a noise. Making noise used to be expensive on the net. Well, now it’s a lot cheaper! Notice I did not say free.

It also depends on what you really want to accomplish.

Noise making really, requires a community. What I mean is, if you want to be heard, shout in a marketplace, or in a full classroom, or at a conference. All these places require people. In other words, no one will notice you if you shout in a desert (I’m sure they will though if certain other conditions are met and you really shout loud enough, but you get my drift).

So, where you place your blog is important. One of the most important ways of getting readership of your posts, is to have people you know visit your site, or even get them to create their own blogs, and then link to your. This way, your site gets more visibility.

Of course I am taking for granted that you have something someone would want to read about.

Has anyone compared 360 to other social networking sites such as LinkedIn, Ecademy, OpenBC. There are more social networking tools if you will have the time to search them out.

What about blogging? there are also myriad tools for blogging. You may even host it on your own site, or any of the many blogging sites. Some of them are owned by the Internet giants  such as google’s blogger, msn has spaces, yahoo’s 360 and then you have  wordpress  which is exactly in the same leagus as the foregoing.

I have used all of them in some capacity though I do not have the time to update them regularly. You can see my blogs on blogger, 360, spaces, wordpress. They are all to serve different purposes and I plan to update each regularly at least twicw a week from now on.

These sites actually fall into two categories as i have noticed: Yahoo and msn are buuilding communities which allow you to link with your friends from your blogs, wordpress and blogger are just basic diaries.

Spaces seems more complex because of the heavy use of graphics but is actualy not. You can have more fun with it if you have the time for it.

360 looks basic, but is almost as capable as it’s msn counterpart. It’s simple interface allows you to focus more on writing, but does allow more flexiblity than the other two.

One of the strengths of blogger is in google’s adsense marketing ploy. With adsense, you can turn your blogspot to a revenue generating tool. I also set up some of their links on my blogspot. (Please visit and click, download as you will. I’ll make some coins from it I hope)

My first major write was for wordpress. I love the templates ans the way you can get to host it on your own domain (blogger does this as well, but the templates are not as fun to look at from my perspective). they offer other tools as well to improve the performance of your blog. I still love it, but I have to re position the class of content I intend to publish on it.

Grey Day

It rained a lot today on the island. Not a heavy downpour, but enough drizzle to discourage going out for fun.

The forecasts was for a cool day with not too much sunshine so I thought I might be able to enjoy a stroll just before lunch to work up my flagging appetite. They said nothing about a sustained drizzle.

The traffic in Victoria Island compounded the problem so much that I was trapped in the drizzle and ended up getting more than a little wet.

On my return from the Office, I looked up a few weather sites and see which were more accurate. was pretty accurate in its prediction along with both beating‘s mostly cloudy prediction.

Both sites were easy to navigate and I spent little time to get the needed info. of course these were not the only sites I visited, but I rejected any site that required more than three clicks to get the information I sought.

This Valentine…. My first since I got married! Yeah, I’m still trippin’.  I’ll just take my babe on a leisurely stroll. Don’t get to do so much of it these days. We can just talk about things. But it going to be passé because every day is Valentine or honeymoon as soon we are both home together.
