Yes, I know, blogging is already a business. It has been before Jeremy's Ebay auction. But I think that auction got something started. Because since then, the business blogging world expanded. Big times, together with podcasting.
Before long, there will be enough companies large and small -- not to mention existing and yet-to-be developed blog networks like Weblogs Inc and Creative-Weblogging -- needing freelance bloggers that the demand will quickly overcome the supply. These companies are going to have to find bloggers somewhere. I would just as soon they find them at Bloggeropoly.A great idea and I think this will bring movement to the blogosphere, both in energy and in quality.
There is still room for the diary of a teenager - but the business market is the bigger partner. I was tempted to write "the bigger fish" but that is not true. This time feels as if we are cooperating and will be partners.
And from the same weblog comes another great news. Come and meet BizBlogBuzz:
I just reserved the domain name for a new blog I'm developing to be called BizBlogBuzz. As the name implies, it's a blog that will talk about the business of blogging, with an emphasis on business blogging news and developments. I'm going to really have to keep my ear to the ground for this one.I love talking about blogs. And I am all for Business and using these too things. Many people whine "oh, why do you all talk about blogging and not about topics" - hell, because to me it is interesting to talk about it. There are actually even more people who want to do so. Have fun doing it and earn money by doing it. Search engine industrie is a notable business, why should blogging not be?
But that is not the fun part. This is:
Part of the plans for the blog include a weekly interview-style podcast with business bloggers. I already know enough people to do six-months worth.Very cool. Can I please have the feeds so I can subscribe? Perorder the feed? :o)
Cameron said, that this is feeling like 1995 all over again - I was not part of that movement and also not of the dot com. But today, this feels exciting. Energizing. Making me smile - and I am just tipping my toes a little bit in the water.
But I have to look overseas to have this vista; this part of the earth is far behind ... *sigh*
