Well, another thingy I can put on my CV; Experienced Blogger 😛
I saw this post on /. which basically states that blogging is now a real “business skill” which seems to be pretty much in demand. It also links to this article (which has a needlessly bloody long URL) in the WSJ.
After reading through the WSJ article, it really does make perfect sense to me that blogging should be regarded as a serious marketing tool. It really is! It creates awareness about a company’s products and/or services, therefore it’s only logical that the industry acknowledges its importance.
I mean, surely many of you have seen cult sites which criticizes the products or services of companies where the “former consumer” felt that he/she has been screwed over. I do find such expression of anger and/or frustration to be quite normal. Therefore I wouldn’t find anything strange with a blog that regularly praises the products and/or services of “well-behaving” companies… yeah, even if the blogger gets paid for doing so.
Anyone wants to hire me? 😉
