Common Problems with Blogs

Blogs are a portion of the many technological advancements we have seen in recent day,
but they have quickly become extremely popular. People can create them to share their
thoughts, ideas, and expertise with others around the world. There are vast quantities of
blogs out on the internet these days, but not all of them are created equally. Many are
excellent, but others are more painful to read. Just what exactly makes a blog less than
enjoyable? This can be attributed to any number of reasons.

First of all, it can sometimes be difficult to find a blog that best fits your current need.
For example, doing an internet search for a blog on a specific topic could bring up
hundreds of sites. Some will be large sites such as Blogger that host lots of smaller
blogs, and you will have to weed through to find the one that you need.

Another problem with blogs is the content. A blog is intended to be a forum for
expressing yourself to the world. Unfortunately, too many people tend to use it as a chat
room between friends. They write all about local events and such and comment back and
forth in that way. People also tend to use phrases and/or slang that is only familiar to
their friends. This alienates potential readers who might like to gain some knowledge
from the blog.

In addition, there are often too many blogs out there that have just not been updated. It
seems that people start them up but do not take the time to post after a while. It would be
helpful if blog owners realized that people often want the information they can provide
and would like to form a readership relationship with the writer. However, this means
the writer has to hold up his end of the bargain and furnish valuable, educational content
for the blog.

Speaking of content, if you consider creating a blog, think of an intelligent topic. For
example, consider starting a blog that would be more along the lines of a philosophical
discussion or spiritual exploration. There are already too many blogs on the web devoted
to people’s favorite actors or actresses. Share your knowledge and passion with the
world; just choose the less trivial knowledge!

Another common problem with blogs is the commenting feature. It is virtually useless in
many cases. A large number of blog owners have a place for comments available, but
many do not bother to respond to the comments placed. It is difficult to create a
readership if you leave them feeling insignificant or ignored.

The world of blogging can be fresh, interesting, and exciting. However, it takes some
work by the blog writers to create relevant blogs that are useful for a wide range of
people. Chat rooms were created for small talk and intimate conversations. Blogging is
meant to create a community that can share information and passion on various topics. If
writers will focus on the readership more than on themselves, blogs would be better for
everyone!
