The notion behind the movement that built itself around the current President’s massive celebrity, though, is an important notion to put behind any American trend right now, primarily because of all of the nastily grim news that continues to dominate world news. Blogging is equal parts business and art. On the one hand, the blogs I read regularly are marked with the blogger’s ability to write well, to discuss topics that are either of direct or abstract interest to me and, most importantly, are written in such way that interest me.
On the other, they have built around the content a series of revenue-creating strategies that, without having to cost anyone exorbitant amounts of money to maintain, enabled themselves to turn their writing into full-time incomes ollanewsjournal.com. Whether or not you believe in the current stimulus plan, you know that its success will take time. In the mean time, we have to be able to make money to keep ourselves clothed and fed while the market adjusts. If you can earn money through blogs, you’re making yourself a part of one of the newer strategies toward filling the gaps in the traditional, ever-shrinking job market.
One of the brilliant parts of the President’s campaign– and a key to the early ways he’s been running the government so far– is engaging the internet-savvy populace through new media. It’s not just that we were collectively fed up with the GOP or that we particularly disliked John McCain (though the soccer mom he picked as running-mate is, let’s face it, a little scary); it’s also that the phalanx of supporters that David Plouffe turned into a PR army got and spread most of their information through the internet.
People are still reading. They’re just doing it online now more than ever before. Those who are able to master the techniques in the blogosphere will be better able to weather the storm of job losses that this President has both inherited and is trying to stop. In the meantime, while we’re busy reading his people’s blogs and watching his weekly YouTube addresses, we might as well tap into the same network and aid in the change in the country we voted to pass.
