The Industry of Blogs

03/14/2005

Have blogs developed into an industry? I think  so. For those nay sayers, let's define what is an industry. From Wikipedia:  An industry is generally any grouping of businesses that share a common method of generating profits.

It's been fascinating to watch this new industry grow. Within a very short time new companies have entered the playing field from tech companies that provide blog platforms and blog consultants who will help you develop strategy to creative firms that will design "skins" for your blog and companies that will place ads on blogs and ads in RSS feeds.

Although blog writing has it's roots in website writing, business/marketing blogs demand a different style. Conversational but at the same time professional. Blog copywriters are emerging to fill a gap when companies don't have internal resources. Paul Chaney, Radiant Marketing Group launched Bloggeropoly - the world's first blogger for hire agency.  And there are freelance blog copywriters too like Tris, Alex and Jane.

Can you think fast,  compose fast, type fast and shoot photos too? Continuing the entrepreneur spirit, Kris Krug is offering a unique service - live blogging at events.

Blog networks serve as portals that distribute blogs adding another dimension to the blogosphere. Some networks pay bloggers to write niche blogs.
