The Big Idea
Blogs are a media channel in their own right with their own rules for success.
If you think that a blog is simply a time waster, or an easy outlet to express your opinion about this and that, then you’ve missed the point. You’ve also missed a big opportunity. Blogs open the door to enable you to lead a conversation and build a community. They are, in essence, a communication outlet; they are a discrete media channel. Blogs are the new face of journalism.
