Types of Blogs You Can Create ๐Ÿ™‚

Topic Blogs – Actually this site BlogsAndSocialNetworks.com is a “Topic” blog, so is VideoGamesAndGaming.com, but these two are also a How To blog as well. Any broad, general, global, town related subject whether it’s a “World” blog or just a State, your topic can be Animals in the World (broad topic) or Primates in the Jungle (a bit more narrow) or Chimps in the NY Zoo (very specific ๐Ÿ™‚ Americans is a great topic as well, Ben Franklin for example. You could post about him for a whole month, then next month post on George Washington ๐Ÿ™‚

Topic blogs have such a diverse inclusion like Fashion, Travel, Dreams, My Trip, Educational Institutions, Cats, etc. Many choices here. Write what you love ๐Ÿ™‚

Salesy Web Site Blogs – Sites that look a Christmas Sale at the Mall with Flashy Banners, Sales Fluff around every corner. These do attract attention to some and may work for you.

Photo Sites – A great Photo style blog can be found at ParisDailyPhoto.com but it is any chosen photo you select to “be” the blog and add a line or few of explanation or interest, location … etc. to your picture ๐Ÿ™‚

Journal Blogs – A great example of a journal style blog is Wavecritter.LiveJournal.com or SurfPiccasso2001.LiveJournal.com Stevies blog is a journal style, write as you sort of story teller or what’s up with my day or life type blog ๐Ÿ™‚

VLogs or Video Blogs – Of course the best place to see a VLog is at a Video Social Network at someones profile page like me ๐Ÿ™‚ YouTube.com/Wavecritter I have a bunch of friends there that have very different styles of VLogs too which are easy to find at YouTube, like a musician style where they play and take videos of either them on stage or create a story video to go with their songs; “Let’s Talk” sort of videos, How To, Real Life, and more.

Explanation or Definition Blogs – These are quite similar to the How To style blogs but are mostly like a Wikipedia style topic blog that gives a detailed explanation with examples ๐Ÿ™‚ They don’t need to be using the Wikipedia platform of course, but this one on Blog is a good example. A really great Explanation blog will have many resource links to other relevant posts or sites.

Review Blogs – These are usually quite helpful blogs in general as you can open up several and see what different views there are out there on any given iten, topic, company, laundry soap lol, or whatever you are looking for opinions on. To write this style blog you will need to have more than an idea of the subject. If you do a review site on restaraunts for example, you would be a person who frequently visits new restaraunts and has a grasp of a great dining out experience with out being hyper critical. Point out the pros and cons so to speak ๐Ÿ™‚ If you write a review style blog, you could link to the items that you review for more link backs, information, or to monetize your site if these are your items on Amazon or EBay.

List Blogs – This is a fun way to blog. 7 ways to bake a cake, 11 types of tennis shoes, 8 reasons why you should exercise, 100 favorite songs of the year, the top 5 social networks, etc. With a list style blog, you can start a post with the original list, then take each (#1, #2, etc.) and make an in depth post on each number, it will get you a whole series of posts and help you with your posts ๐Ÿ™‚

Group, Team, or Company Style Blogs – A site for any specific organization, group or team. This type of blog is geared toward your members of the company, pack, sports organization, guild, or party to get information out to them. A communication type blog just for a specific sector of people.

Most blogs fall into one or more (or a subset) of these categories, but as categories go, they could be sub divided into many, many more smaller or specific types like with the Topic Blog especially ๐Ÿ™‚

Lokking at the list of blog types that WordPress has will help you as well. This list will keep you clear of the No-No Types of Blogs to create ๐Ÿ™‚

Have fun with your blog and write what you are passionate about or you may not be blogging long out of boredom ๐Ÿ™‚

Checking into MyBlogLog and Zimbio will get you some additonal blog attention!

{April 21, 2008}   BlogHeiress On My BlogLog

Throughout the journey, the road less traveled or the highway to the blogging world, we notice the actual “road” is My BlogLog. An outstanding intersection of continuing highways and byways of interconnectedness. This is My BlogLog. It actually weaves together the blogs and social networks of today, melding them into the off ramps of tomorrow.

Getting and staying connecting in the blogs and social networks world on the Internet is an experience of a lifetime. Our pasts did not even include this awesome situational entertainment and friendship.

Blogs and Social Networks in general are expanding and growing daily, scratch that, hourly. The amount of people reaching out for world wide friendship is amazing and exciting.

The first stop in our journey today will be to the video mogul of YouTube. Like the glamor and sparkle of the Las Vegas strip with the culture and information of the Museums, Hoover Dam, and The Grand Canyon, comedy like Ray Romano and Kevin James, shows and magic like Chris Angel and The Blue Man Group, YouTube has it all. Sign up, upload a video you created or just view the hundreds of thousands of videos already here. Join a group or enter a video contest, just broadcast yourself.

How about we visit the tops on the fun, chatty charts by taking a trip to the Twin Cities, MN, Greatest Shopping Mall Of America! IMVU!

IMVU is an outstanding, fun, digital, graphic image maker, and player site. You create a little “you” image, and dress up, buy items and clothes and hair styles and much more, take photos of the virtual “you” , go on a Ferris Wheel, in a cafe, disco, wherever the little “you” wants to play, get photographed, purchase items with credits, chat, engage, and virtually have the time of your Internet life! Missgreenbacks, Lucky, IMVUInc, and Charm are there to get you rolling and help your navigation! The Greatest Shopping Mall Of The Internet World awaits at IMVU.

Let’s Move along now, down the cobblestone streets of Amsterdam and join in on the group activities and artistic Rembrandt talents of the members of WetPaint Wiki. Get a community gathering started and become a sightseeing tour down the Amsterdam canal. Design graphics and flourishes that match your Wiki design with Paint Splatters. Wikis are websites that everyone can build together. It’s easy. Come to community fun and information spot, build a page, add a widget, leave your mark on the adventure of the Wiki!

Questing ever further into blogs and social networks we arrive, (and some say “finally”) at the Blogs and Social Networks dream adventure. The Tibet, if you will, of the day. Friendster is the highest peak to reach and the most tranquil, easy-going of the industry. The Friendster crew is always helpful and pleasant. Add Apps, Get Connected, Explore, and Search through the mountainous region that is Friendster. With a separate, but unified blogging city, Friendster creates a collective environment of exploration, fun, and friends.

Throughout the journey, the road less traveled or the highway to the blogging world, we notice the actual “road” is My BlogLog. An outstanding intersection of continuing highways and byways of interconnectedness. This is My BlogLog. It actually weaves together the blogs and social networks of today, melding them into the off ramps of tomorrow.

Getting and staying connecting in the blogs and social networks world on the Internet is an experience of a lifetime. Our pasts did not even include this awesome situational entertainment and friendship.
