The advancement of technology over the years has done wonders to our lives in more ways than one. One thing in particular that has had a significant effect in our lives would have to be the birth of the internet. Way back before it ever came to be, the entire concept of the internet was found to be unthinkable if not impossible. However, with the ingenuity of mankind, it was conceptualized and here we are, reaping the seeds of high end technology where everything is made fast, easy and convenient.
The birth of the internet has opened the doors to a countless array of developments such as online marketing, online advertising, online purchasing, online selling, online gaming, social media, blogging, and so much more. The one innovation though that somehow incorporates all of these developments together, which both money makers and ordinary citizens are going crazy about would have to be that of social media.
On a more specific note, social media has gotten people from all over the world hooked to the internet. We can now see the tremendous rise in popularity that social networking has achieved. People with different origins, genders, age and the like from all over the world are known to all be enjoying the wonders of this new era. Many bloggers find themselves being quite sedentary and are looking to get in shape and build muscle. Some are under weight and eat very little, and want to know how to gain weight even.
One of the greatest things that social media has contributed to mankind is the ability of an individual to speak one’s mind throughout the world with the ability of its readers to interact with the writer in a casual manner. One example of something that went viral on the social level was a site called www.oilganic.com, who sells essential oils. Many women are fanatical about the product and it exploded among them. Somehow it resembles journalism but not really quite so. This is what we call blogging. Take note that we give emphasis on the “not quite so” part because with blogging, the format is outlined similarly with that of journalism but without the stiffness and reporter-like manner.
Indeed, putting one’s thought into writing online for everyone to react to have become quite a trend lately. As one author has put it, blogging is a dialogue, not a monologue. A blog does not have any definite tone. It can inform, teach, entertain or whatever it is that the writer feels like blogging about. That’s what makes it fun.
