Blogs Are Like Transformers ...

Hello everyone, We all are hearing about it and seeing more of it ... Blogs and Blogging. It's hot but people are still not sure of what it is or how to use it. Bill Dugan, an AdlandPro member has a forum that covers the setup and basic understanding of a blog and how to get it syndicated. Blogs are becoming more sophisticated in how you can use them. Looking into adding features to my company's blog service has me studying other technologies. Phone text messeging and podcasting are coming into the picture now and look to be coming on STRONG! So, let me briefly tell about text messeging using cell phones and email sends. First, to use a cell phone, you need to have email service through your mobile service provider (MSP). Same as recieving email you can send email. Now, if your blog service is equiped for mobile text messeging you will need to supply your blog in it's setup the email address you have with your MSP. Some blog services will give you a special addy to put in your cellphone to send to your blog. It's a security feature so you don't get alot of postings you don't wish to recieve from other cell phones and you will know where the post came from. Why would you want to send from your cell phone a messege to your blog. Let's say you are in the sporting goods business. You hear that the city is going to allocate a huge amount of money into Parks and Recreations and that means equipment sales. Why would you send this to your blog? If your blog is private and used as an idea journal you can enter info like as if it's a daytimer. A reminder for later. Let's say though you have a public blog, instead of sending info on sporting equipment you know the city will be looking for landscapers and other contractors that are not in competition with you. Posting it could get you in touch as a middle person for more info and start a network with other fields that can work together, expanding your business as well. This is only an example and don't be afraid to use your imagination. Also, you can use your regular email to send to the blog, too. Setup is similar and used the same. I'll cover podcasting soon.
