Blogs are establishing themselves as a new and original media form. Blogs are instant publishing tools that allow you to easily update your content, create relationships and build trust with your target audience. They can also be a very easy way to make money. It’s very easy to get a high PR profile in a short amount of time with a blog. Blogs are a really great way for a newbie to make some money because you don’t need an initial financial investment, just time.
Blogs are not just for press releases, product updates, or company news. They are informal, yet structured, Web sites where individuals and corporations can publish stories, opinions and links, often daily. Blog means web-log and most blogs are started as online journals.
It is common for blogs to feature advertisements either for the financial benefit of the blogger, or to promote the blogger’s favorite causes. Blogging has the ability to establish people as experts on niche topics and we all know the value of being perceived as an expert.
It has acquired the status of a full fledged industry as many bloggers have built fortunes by blogging. Blogging seems to be one of the best hard earned, legitimate online money-making ideas. It has also become a very good way of informing people about what’s going on. Blogging is growing in importance, and at a minimum, companies should monitor blogs to learn what is being said about their products and services.
Bloggers also make money by engaging the readers and asking them to comment. Bloggers were among the first to realize, and in many cases successfully capitalize on the brand that their name and content had become. Bloggers and analysts said companies that want to blog should identify a specific reason to do so, such as to humanize the company, make the company more open or advance the fun-and-happy company image. Bloggers go where the mainstream media fear to tread.
Personal bloggers usually take pride in their blog posts, even if their blog is never read by anyone but them. Gartner analysts expect that the novelty value of the medium will wear off as most people who are interested in the phenomenon have checked it out, and new bloggers will offset the number of writers who abandon their creation out of boredom. One area of concern is the issue of bloggers releasing proprietary or confidential information. Several cases have been brought before the national courts against bloggers concerning issues of defamation or liability.
Blogs are natural search engine magnets, but you also need to understand the importance of using the right keywords, in headlines and when writing content that markets your business. Blogs are a good place to speak candidly with a conversational style. They are, in their purest form, the core of what has come to be called personal publishing. They are the leading edge of what is often called Web 2.0. Bottom line is blogs are still the “new way” to communicate.

This is my new Blog and having been away from it for a couple of years it’s great to be back because I really enjoy it. Just to tell you something about myself, my wife and I are currently working with Autistic adults in the state of Maine and we love it. Although we’re from Canada, originally from Newfoundland, this is our second stint working in Maine and the two men we are working with this time around are great. We’ve become very attached to these young men and we consider ourselves to be a family. Actually our job title is that of Therapeutic Foster Parents and of course we take it very seriously. One of the main reasons we take it so seriously is that we are advocates for these young men because at times they can’t speak for themselves.
The sad part about our job here in Maine is that we have to leave the country after 18 months. The reason for this being the company who hired us and sponsored us into the US could only get us into the country by way of a Training Visa with the main condition being we have to leave after 18 months. We were here under the same circumstances in 2007 and had to leave the guys we were caring for at that time at the end of 2008.
This of course was very difficult for the three men we were working with and living with at the time and it was also very difficult for us because we became very attached and as I mentioned earlier we became a family. One of the main benefits of coming back is that we get to see the guys we worked with on our first visit and we also get to do what we enjoy which is caring for and helping these young men.
Because of our love for what we do and for the people we work with I will be dedicating a Page on this website to Autism and to the people who live with it on a daily basis. I’m hoping this will help educate people who aren’t familiar with what is fast becoming a global concern and help to raise funds for research.
The other objective of this website is to offer Home Business advice and present opportunities to people who are interested in making a legitimate living by working from home.
I’m hoping to have a great deal of relevant content added soon and I hope people will make it a point to visit often. Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to read this information.
The following two videos should give you some idea of the majestic beauty of Newfoundland:
I’ve added a video below, one of which is actually an advertisement by a local brewery located in St. John’s, Newfoundland which is where I’m from. But it contains some great shots of the area and I like to think portrays what we, as Newfoundlanders, are all about: People who care about people, who work hard and play hard but aren’t afraid to laugh at ourselves. In the following videos you will see many examples of this outlook on life as portrayed by local entertainers performing at what we call “Kitchen Parties”.
These are events where neighbours come together to have a few drinks and entertain one another through song and dance. Please take the time to have a look.
