Expert Blogging

Becoming an Expert Blogger

There are people out there who are expert bloggers. They know how to blog and many of them have made businesses out of teaching and consulting with other people on how to blog.

When I went to college there was no such thing as a blog expert, no such thing as blog, let alone classes on blogs, blog writing. No such thing as a class just for writing on the Web. Think of the careers I could have had! (Think of the careers I have had!)

The thing that is so nice about Blogs to be is that there is no penalty for speaking your mind. There is no penalty for a typo here and there. And even the expert blogger may slip up once in a while. That is ok. We are human. However, I do not have the same tolerance for corporate sites. An occassional typo happens, but it is important to *try* to get those details right.

A blog is conversational, informational. Casual. (Take that sentence for example... the grammar there is horrible, but you forgive me right?)

Blogging is something that many people have the potential top be come expert in. In fact there will likely be sub-catagories of blog experts. I may become an expert on blogs for SEO. Maybe I am already... there probably isn't too much competition out there in reality. Some people will become blogs experts on more traditional "reporting" some on the actual process of bloggiong. Making blogging even more accessible.

So will you be an expert blogger?

Do you have a story about how blogging has helped you network? Comments welcome.
