BlogHeiress Blogs And Social Networks











I found a few recent studies in my travels around the net on statistics for Bloggers ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course, not all the same types of people blog but statistically bloggers are largely male ๐Ÿ™‚ and it seems that more than half have an income of over $75,000 annually. 42% of bloggers today have attended graduate school ๐Ÿ™‚

More than half of bloggers out there now are currently on their (at least) second blog site, blog, or platform.ย  (I am as well), but more than half have been blogging for two or more years too (like me ).

I find these statistics interesting but they will soon change as the blogging explosion has arrived and is growing in numbers by the minute.

One of the largest categories of Blog Types is really the Topic Type blog. I think mainly because this subject encompasses such a large arena. Bloggers who are into History could Topic Blog about Historians, Americans, Europe, The Romans, Greeks, or Isreals History. I have compiled a list of sorts of ideas for Blog Titles and Topic Types:

“The Inner Workings of Techno”

Tables and Chairs”

The Science of Sociology” (Astronomy, Physics, etc.)

“Egypt and It’s Tombs”

“How Does It Work?”

“Things That Are Round”

“Writing Utensils”

“Types of Blogs”

“Felines and Their Ways”

“Microbes”

“Berries” Check Out BerryH2o.blogspot.com for one on this ๐Ÿ™‚

“The Blues”

Write your passion. Write what you love, find interesting, or for that matter what you want to learn more about ๐Ÿ™‚ This could be a topic blog on your adventures into learning something that you would like to know. This is how blogging started for me. I needed more information on a certain topic and wanted a “holding area” to keep everything I learned as it is often difficult to find “saved” bookmarks in your own files if they are a bit crowded LOL ๐Ÿ™‚ Wetpaint Wikis are an awesome holding type topic blog site as is WordPress here.

Enjoy your blogging ๐Ÿ™‚

{February 22, 2009}   Blogs – Types of Blogs

Having made step by step videos on How To navigate and use different blog platforms and How To use the blogging areas on some of the big social networks like MySpace, Facebook, and My Yearbook,ย  but then … what do you write about?

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!
