You’re probably reading the title of this article and thinking “What does he mean by ‘Doing this Right’?”
I follow a large number of blogs and I love the many ways people have taken the Blogging Concept and made it their own. However, one thing makes me stop and wonder:
Are we writing Articles or merely Posts as with Social Media like Facebook?
Speaking for myself, I treat each installment as if I were back writing articles for my college newspaper, only opinion-based as if I were writing a column. That’s part of my writing background and though I specialize in writing Fiction, I enjoy putting together articles for entertainment and information. I suppose that’s the Ole Aspiring Journalist making itself known.
Is there a right way or wrong way to do this? I pose this question not to drastically alter how I write these things, but to understand how things work according to those who have done this a lot longer than I. I really want your input and offer profuse thank yous in advance. 🙂
