The Future of Blogging: Market your Blog

There's been discussion of my fellow classmates looking to take what they've learned from this social media/internet for PR class and using it after the semester ends by launching their own blogs. I sincerely hope that there are some great new blogs coming out of this class as we pair our interests with our new web 2.0-ness. Today, I'd like to offer a great page of resources from ProBlogger that lists all of the great articles that resulted from their "31 Days to Building a Better Blog" project.

This page, and ProBlogger in general, is a great one-stop shop for blogging resources - especially for those interested in gaining more readers and publicity for your blog (and who isn't?).

If you think you'd like to take this a step further and turn blogging into a job, then check out ProBlogger's Job Board, which lists companies who are looking for bloggers to write about a specific topic or industry.

Who out there is starting their own blog after this semester? I know Aisa is.

I have really enjoyed blogging in this class as well. I feel that it is a good way to share your own insight and share information, as well as get the same back in return from reading other people's blogs. Now that the semester is coming to an end I do think that I will continue blogging after the class is over. Thanks for the helpful tips they have really helped out.

I really want to blog but this one is so limiting. I think as I get older and find a job I will start blogging about it. Thanks for the site!

Paro, if you're looking to start a new blog elsewhere, check out www.wordpress.com - it's an online blogging website like Blogger but with way more options and features.
