People write free blogs and article so other people can read it. One way or another, we would like to share ideas, questions, or experiences. Information plays an important role in our lives.
But are we writing articles just to share it to our friends? Some would say yes but most would say no. It’s a fact that many of us writes an article or shares blog because we wanted to be noticed by sharing what we know. In this world, it doesn’t matter if you are very intelligent when no one knows that you are. That is why we do write-ups and share it through blogs, article directories, newspapers, books, etc.
During the recent years I continually strive to understand how effective writing can be done. Yes, I have a BS and have also taken MBA for a while. But the reality is a bit different from what we learn in classrooms. I created free blogs many times and built websites just being curious to learn the basics and to be “in” around the internet circle. But the most important thing is when I have discovered a couple of times that I fail for one reason or another.
In the beginning, I posted articles to my blogs by simply borrowing ideas of other writers, whew! I am a bad writer huh? Excuse me but you are damn right! I have my reason why and it’s not a bad idea to copy someone else’s work, but the most important thing to do is to give the credit to the original writer. Never steal other people’s writings. If you are not yet ready to write your own, then don’t forget to include in the footer of your copied article the source of the said article or whoever wrote it. Give the credit to them whenever you repost their articles. Eventually, I will discourage you to continuously practice copying. Mind you that copying another man’s idea is Plagiarism and it is not socially acceptable.
The most important thing in writing is originality because writing is an art and the beauty of an art depends on its artist. Your idea even copied by someone else is still yours and nobody has any right to steal it from you. So, you should begin bringing your own self into your own writings.
Moving forward, I eventually started writing my own free blog thingy. I started from one topic into another. I believe that if some other writers have their distinct knowledge, I also have mine. But again, whatever it is that we write should be read by someone else to serve its purpose – sharing…. and what we share is…. information.
But how do we share our writings? Placing our articles in a free blog site is not enough. You don’t want to post article that no one could ever read. Perhaps there will be few who will be able to find it out but won’t you feel a lot better if many others will read what have you labored?
Yes, you can share the articles you have written and posted into a blog site simply by giving them the exact location link of the page where you have posted your article. But how long would you be able to do this? How much friend circle do you have? 10? 100? Or maybe you can also extend further and put the article link into your Facebook account so you can share it with your Facebook connections and friends. But still, how many are in your Facebook friend list? 500? 2000? Even you have the maximum number of listed friends in Facebook which is 5,000, you will still not be able to share it as widely to the world as possible.
So what do we do then? We need to automate sharing our written free blogs by going back to the basic. Let search engines like Google or Yahoo and the others open the doors for you without the need to exert too much effort. Did it made sense for you? Now if you want to gear up to the next level, you should learn Search Engine Optimization. You can read another article I made titled “How To Make Your Free Blog SEO Friendly”.
Warning: you may find this article on E-voting, E-campaining and E-Politicking intriguing.
Since the proliferation of computers began about two decades ago, many things in the social process happened including how the country is being run by people behind every government. More to this, harnessing the power of networking, the administration games changed.
If I recall it right in early 1990s when internet had started to become accessible to some people, they have started to study further how the use of this technology can be maximized.
Many years had passed by from then and internet, computer software and hardware, and skillful programmers played a big role in the change of our community, environment and every nation.
Most specifically in politics, people who are holding office or those who are looking to patch a political position are talking much about how to use this technology in the next level and maximize its use over election campaigning.
For the past 7 years, Filipino People became fully aware of social media and how possible it is to connect people even at the remotest area. The Housemaid and the Yaya have facebook account or the other. Communication is also easy through the help of SMS. There is no need to own a desktop or laptop anymore as email can be sent straight from a mobile phone. Some are even able to buy tablets, either because they need it or they just wanted to be “in”.
Over this technological development, politicians are the most benefited. They can propagate political advertisement easily or run a like campaign over facebook. Easily done. Actually most in my facebook friend list are political figures and show business entertainers. Most of them didn’t even bother to drop a personal message for me. Not even a “Hi Thanks for your support in my Political career” chuba thing. Don’t expect. This form of connection is just to show-off to their opponents that even online they have political allies, supporters: some politicians you connect with will even brag about you as their constituents – really?. What a shameful term. If you go deeper and try to re-word constituent, it may mean a component or a part. Yes, you are just a part of their political career. And just like any car or transport vehicles, parts are only attended to when something is already wrong to the whole system which will jeopardize their political career.
Since the election is again now about to come soon this 2013, many would want to connect to you. To show they can extend some sort of personal touch, sure?!
Many of them will again show up in the social media, and brag about their hard work while they are just actually sleeping during sessions in the House because they went home late last night after partying and needs to recharge for the next party tonight.
I personally value the importance of our able programmers.
What if our able programmers develop a political console game?
If someone would buy my challenge, why don’t you guys create this program? A program that would challenge our politicians to register, log in, and play their role just like what they are running for (i.e.: if the politician is running for a seat in the Senate, Congress, or even Presidency, then he could simply tick a choice; what he chooses loads the rule of the game) and let us all see what programs, laws, priorities, people empowerment, social and economic development he has in mind. It will be just a like a video console game. In this way, we can easily see if the guy running for a seat will really contribute to the society aiming for the well-being of every one and not for the few ones. We just need this console game realistic to the current scenario of our country – show the crime rate, insurgency, corruption problem, etc etc.
Don’t ask me where to load this software, you can consider running it in a government server (or publicly owned server) such as those controlled by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA).
Another beautiful day, isn’t it?
that might interest me. Actually, I happen to visit one website and had interest to dig on its pages.
worth the while spent. I had to make sure that I just don’t simply waste my time without gaining something monetarily. Nope, it doesn’t mean that I just need to earn money but its more realistic to say that I like to do things that I love doing which makes me feel fulfilled and at the same time makes me money 🙂 – did you catch it? Think. It’s just like hitting two birds in the same throw of a single stone. Now you get my point. 🙂
