Are You A Branded Blogger? You Should Be!

Blogging is publishing and publishing is communication. Communication is public relations and public relations is crucial to your brand. Become a branded blogger – E. Nyoreme Nakpodia

Are you a creative writer or journalist? Or maybe you’re an artist in the world of media graphics, photography or sound engineering. Whatever your craft may be, have you ever thought of how easy it could be to get your written, audio or visual work out there to the massive public? Or maybe you’re one of those who think that it is still as difficult to do so as it was say 10 or 20 years ago. Well, fear not because our wonderful world-wide-web with its surplus apps and tools has made it all too easy for you to express all your artistry.

This new-school way of self-publishing one’s own work is called blogging and those who currently do so are called bloggers. What does the word ‘blog’ mean? Well, it is a log of your website’s activity, hence the name weblog. There are essentially four components to blogging namely; text, photo, audio and video. As a regular blogger, Nyoremes will help you identify the best tools on the web to assist you in becoming a branded blogger.

Text

As a blogger, you should know that text or words are very important to your website as they are the easiest and quickest way to engage with your audience. As most internet users do not like to read too much at a time, we advise that you keep your articles between a 500 – 750 word limit. This will allow your audience to receive the most useful information to them in a very time-efficient way, while allowing you to get on with writing your next article. For blogging in general, (especially textual blogging) we have found WordPress, and Tumblr to be the best tools available on the web. They allow you to make use of all 4 blogging components in a very straight-forward and easy-to-use way. With one of these free accounts, you could be up and blogging in a matter of minutes.

Photo

After writing your article, adding a suitable photo or ‘pic’ to your written content, literally takes your blogging to another level. Internet users (especially social net-workers) simply love to see a still or animated illustration that cleverly depicts the bulk of the idea in your written work. Everybody loves a nice photo (like the one in this article) and for Nyoremes, there is no better place on the web to find and blog images than on Pinterest and Flickr. They are both fresh, funky and full of fantastic photos. And oh yeah, they’re also free to use.

Audio

Although not highly popular at the moment in the world of textual blogging, this important third component is crucial for those of us who express our artistry using our voices and other sounds. For example, a singer, sound-engineer or a public speaker would have huge benefits from blogging in this way, especially as the audio-book market continue to forecast great prospects now and for the very near future. Even traditional writers will benefit from using this form as another means to blog, if they are able to record their written work. Although there are several other audio web tools out there at the moment, Nyoremes recommends SoundCloud for the purpose of audio uploads/downloads. Check it out, for free!

Video

Finally, we come to the last but far from being the least important component of great blogging. Videos simply give your blog the added value that only well branded blogs and companies are privy to. Videos basically allow you to incorporate all the other components (text, photo and audio) into one very effective form of audio-visual communication. For this reason, it is easier to reach and engage with your audience using videos as people will most likely appreciate one or more of its components. Video is literally the way forward on the internet and as a branded blogger, Nyoremes suggests that you get yourself at least one of these two free to use accounts as they are the leaders of video communication on the web; YouTube and Vimeo.

World Publishing Movement

The world is rapidly changing and moving faster than ever before. In today’s world, it is a lot more easier than it has ever been for anyone, especially writers, visual artists, music producers, cameramen and photographers to publish their own works and have them reach their individual audiences. If you are one of such arty, creative types who does not yet know how to publish your works and connect with the people who may want them, then Nyoremes urges you to make use of the recommended sites and suggested tools above. They will take you there!
