Thoughts on Blogs

After discussing some of the gray areas on what it means to be a blogger, I have noticed that blogging is at least a form of marketing. This occurred to me while reading an article from letsmapthisout. The marketing is normally of a person’s opinion, but it can be about a product if that is the focus of those opinions. Even private blogs can reinforce a person’s own ideas. The ability to link to others allows bloggers to find information that reinforces their ideas or to debate what they do not agree with. I found that this allows readers to connect with blogs and start to build their own network of marketed opinions.
