MY ADVENTURE IN THE BLOGGING WORLD HAS BEEN EYE-OPENING, EDUCATIONAL AND FUN. MY BLOGS ARE AN ATTEMPT TO CATEGORIZE INTERESTS AND TO SEGREGATE INFORMATION GATHERED WHILE 'SURFING' THE WEB. YOUR BLOG IS INTERESTING AND ONE I WILL FOLLOW. I JUST NOTICED YOU WERE A FOLLOWER BECAUSE I DID NOT DISPLAY FOLLOWERS UNTIL THIS MOMENT.
GOOGLE HAS INTRODUCED A USEFUL STATISTIC WHICH SHOWS HOW MANY VISITS YOUR BLOGS ARE GETTING... BY THIS STANDARD TO MY BLOGS SHOWS "GET A LIFE IS MOST POPULAR" AND " SECOND IS "POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY"
WITH VARYING AMOUNTS OF INTEREST IN THE OTHERS. BLOGGING IS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE IN MANY WATS. I SET UP AN INFORMAL INVESTIGATION OF WHAT KINDS OF THINGS OTHER PEOPLE GRAVITATE TOWARDS IN THIER BROWSING ON THE WEB. TO DATE I HAVEN'T USED GOOGLE'S FREE ADVERTISING OR ANY OTHER PAID PROMOTION TO GAIN READERS. AT SOME POINT, I MAY GET MORE PROMOTIONAL WITH ONE OR MORE BLOGS. RIGHT NOW BLOGS PROVIDE A PLACE TO STORE INTERESTING INFORMATION FROM THE WEB.
DO YOU HAVE A PURPOSE FOR STARTING A BLOG? ARE YOU A YOUNG COPYRIGHT LAWYER LOOKING FOR CLIENTS?
"SciReg.Org - online free World Science Register - is the universal system, enabling registration of scientific and creative information as well as protection of copyright and intellectual property "
Your description would suggest a more serious approach than my blogs, at this time. Who can say that the future won't be different. Creative Commons seems to be a good guide for what you can safely post. My purpose has been to learn by doing and to enjoy the process of learning about the world wide web. Many universities have 'bought-in' to the idea of open learning and we can find lectures in many topics that spark our interest. I'm a fan of a former financial analyst on Wall Street who began a YouTube mathematics tutoring program to help his cousins pass high school math........ and he has seen huge growth in viewers and has some substantial funding from groups like the Gates Foundation.
My Web approach is like a giant open-ended market study with the hopes of finding a profitable niche to exploit by providing useful information to people who need it and thereby providing a worthwhile service to readers.
Do you have any good ideas you are willing to share? Wikipedia is the best example of giving away an idea instead of becoming a billionaire like with the founder of Facebook, for instance.
