I’m sure you all have heard the classic line: Practice Makes Perfect.
Well, this is true when it comes to blogging and micro-blogging. Blogging will not only allow an individual to market themselves professionally, but also allow one to have a voice and opinion about interesting and upcoming trends or products in this world. Don’t get me wrong, blogs aren’t just for professional or marketing uses. Blogs are used nation wide for those that enjoy creatively telling a story or experience to be shared among others online.
Micro-blogging is much like blogs except the length of blogs are much longer. The most popular microblogging site is Twitter, which only allows one to tweet a 140 character post. On micro-blogs, there is a capability to attach photos, link sites, and embed videos just like a traditional blog. I prefer to use micro-blogging (Twitter) just because of my short attention span. I am trying to get more involved with blogs and bloggers that give great insights to everything social media to help me learn and become more knowledgeable about certain platforms I am unfamiliar about.
