BlogHeiress Blogs And Social Networks











We thought we would condense a bunch of our favorite Blogs and Social Networks sites Newest and Coolest Updates!

Every site changes, whether they add to or take away, the site managers hone, test, and challenge themselves into bettering their particular Blogs and Social Networks sites πŸ™‚

gmail

Here are some of the newest changes we found on:

Google’s GMail:

Picasa, YouTube, Flicker, and Yelp previews of photos, videos, and reviews instead ofΒ  just links, directly in your email!

You’ve all heard the joke “You Can’t “Unsend” an Email?” Well guess again! Google has ursurped the impossible yet again with an option for giving yourself a grace period after clicking that send button πŸ™‚ Edit and resend.

GMail offline! Yes, use GMail even when you are not connected to the net πŸ™‚ and with Tasks Mobile you can take it all with you.

There are (at last look:) 42 current, crazy, lab experiment choices. Something for everyone to try.

Utterli:

The name is fairly new as they were originally Utterz but now Utterli. The same awesome podcasting social network!

The newer happenings at Utterli are a discontinue of the Free International Dial in numbers. Utterli is currently working on a solution at present but this feature has come to be too expensive.

A Desktop Application is now available on Ubuntu if you use the Ubuntu Amazon Services.

Group Calling and Video Processing have also been introduced this year.

Trusera:

Trusera is a brilliantly designed Health Social Network in need of partners. In our search for Haelth Social Networks, we found no real competion here with Trusera, so investors Take a Peek πŸ™‚ At present, what are the investor options? Here is an option πŸ™‚

YouTube:

YouTube in High Definition! Yes, watch your favorite videos in HD!

Try out Collaborative Annotations for your videos. YouTube launched annotations in June of 2008 where you can add text, blurbs, speech bubbles to your uploaded videos. Now, you can invite anyone you like to create speech bubbles, notes, and spotlights on your videos too πŸ™‚ Find this info on the home page of YouTube in the lower right hand Collaborative Annotations link (this takes you to YouTubes blog site:)

Be crowned “Best Dunker” with your presented video. YouTube Slam Dunk with a judging panel of NBA All Star and Olympic Gold Medalist Chris Bosh, Fab 5 Member and NBA Pro Jalen Rose, and the Worlds hottest dunk crew, Team Flight Brothers.

Watch video on Windows Mobile and Nokia S60 phones. While YouTube has been available for many mobile phones for over a year, you can check the newest additions at YouTubes Blog.

Zimbio:

Named as one of the fastest growing sites by Nielsen πŸ™‚ The updates at Zimbio are really a shedding and spring cleaning of some features that took up more time and space really, and not as effective as the resources spent. Even the greatest of ideas get pruned for the honing of perfection πŸ™‚ Check out the updates list for Zimbio by visiting their Company Wiki.

{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,Β  but then … what do you write about?

Types of Blogs You Can Create πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

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

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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

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