What’s a BLOG and Why Would I Want One?

Posted in Internet Marketing at 12:00 pm by Work at Home Team

If you haven’t heard about a “blog” already, you will soon. Here are some Q&As about this great new communication tool.

Q: What does blog mean?

A: It comes from the word weblog. It’s a web page usually made up of short, frequently updated posts arranged chronologically, like instant message on the web. For an example, go here, the first EQ Blog on the Internet.

Q: What’s the purpose?

A: It can be for business or for fun. It can be news about an idea, company, or person. It can be an individual’s shared journal. It can contain poetry, short articles, project updates, fiction. The purpose and content vary, and it’s up to you. You can make an entry whenever the urge strikes.

Q: What different types of blogs are there?

A: Often they’re personal, like “what’s on my mind”, sort of musings. Others are collaborative where many people can join in on a specific topic they’re all interested in.

Q: What can I use a blog for?

A: Coaches are using them to discuss ideas of common interest with clients, such as emotional intelligence, depression, and midlife transition. Businesses are using them for team-project communication and information. They’re excellent communication tools for organizations, teams, departments, companies, families, or communities, much like “lists” only quicker.

Q: What are the advantages?

A: They’re easier and simpler to follow than emails or discussion forums. Blogger.com suggests “Use a private blog on an intranet to allow team members to post related links, files, quotes, or commentary. Set up a family blog where relatives can share personal news.”

Q: Unity and community?

A: A blog can help everyone stay in the loop, help promote a group culture, and keep a project team learning together and in synch. It provides cohesiveness and saves time.

Q: I still don’t get it.

A: The best way to learn is to see what others are doing. To see some examples of different types of blogs, take a look at The Blog of the Week Archive.

Q: Why would I want one?

A: For fun. So others can express their opinions. To get some work done. Because it’s popular now. Lots of reasons.

Q: How can I get started?

A: Go here where they offer one free, and lots of information, plus a support system.

Q: Clearly it’s fun, but can it be for profit? Can it help my business?

A: Well, that’s the current hot topic in some of my coaching “lists.” Whether it helps my “business” or not, it will help my clients because we work in Emotional Intelligence, which requires putting social and emotional skills into into practice in real time, in a learning atmosphere. The missing link for most EQ programs is the group practice. I offer The EQ Learning Lab™ (teleconference), and now I can offer a learning lab in writing. This is a great use of a blog for me and a service I can offer my clients. We all spend a lot of time these days writing on the internet, and here’s away to get some EQ into the picture.
