I’ve been blogging off and on for 2 years, but it took me until recently to really understand how big this thing is going to be. In my experience you mentally have to jump through an number of hoops before you can comprehend why blogs, or more accurately the blogoshpere is going to be vital both to individuals and business.
Now that I’ve been turned into an evangelist – takes me back 10 years to when no one in the UK had heard of the Internet – the interesting question is: How can I illustrate the value proposition?
My theory is to RSS enable the person/company which involves pre-populating some feeds, or otherwise they will never open the reader. But as this post points out, Tag/search feeds can become even more important.
This is new to me, but I can see it makes complete sense. I find that although reading peoples feeds is facinating I find that I get pulled off on too many tangents which makes me anxious about the job in hand.
In my own personal blog reading evolution I’m obviously not yet using Technorati feeds enough. I only have 2 feeds set up. So I know what I gotta do then!
