Blogging (DMS - Digital Media and Society)

Blogging has profoundly influenced not only the nature of the internet today, but also the nature of modern communication, despite being a genre invented less than a decade ago. This book-length study of a now everyday phenomenon provides a close look at blogging while placing it in a historical, theoretical and contemporary context.

Scholars, students and bloggers will find a lively survey of blogging that contextualises blogs in terms of critical theory and the history of digital media. Authored by a scholar-blogger, the book is packed with examples that show how blogging and related genres are changing media and communication. It gives definitions and explains how blogs work, shows how blogs relate to the historical development of publishing and communication and looks at the ways blogs structure social networks and at how social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook incorporate blogging in their design. Specific kinds of blogs discussed include political blogs, citizen journalism, confessional blogs and commercial blogs.

Is there anyway to allow others to place videos on my WordPress blog, similar to You Tube?

Question by Band: Is there anyway to allow others to place videos on my WordPress blog, similar to You Tube?
I want to make my WordPress blog have the function that allows others to put videos on the page whenever they want, even if they do not have my log in information. Is there anyway to do this? It would be similar to the way that people put videos on Youtube and make their own account.

I’m afraid that there’s no direct way you can do this on a WordPress blog. The best alternative is to have a YouTube niche script like this: http://www.advancescripts.com/detailed/15245.html running on a separate directory and linking it from WordPress.

Online blogging is a way of communicating with others on a regular basis about any topic you wish to discuss. You would normally have a website of your own in place, and then sign up for a Blogger account at Blogger.com, so that you would have both a website and a blog. But you don’t necessarily have to have a website.

You can write anything you wish in your blog, make a post through Blogger.com, or WordPress.com, and every day or every week you would write up a post that your readers would find interesting.

If you’re interested in telling people how to make money online for example, you can write blog posts about how to make money online. If you’re interested in hiking in the mountains, you can write posts on your hikes. Or if you’re interested in music, you can write posts on your favourite artists, etc.

At the end of the blog, there is a comments section where you can invite others to comment on your post, and then get a discussion rolling.

In order to make money on a blog, you can copy and paste banners on your site that lead to another website offering something for sale. For example, you may be selling books online, so you can copy/paste a banner from Amazon.com leading to the books you sell via Amazon. If someone clicks on your Amazon banner, goes to your book list, and buys one of your books, you make money.

You can also use links in your blog posts to make money within the text. For example, if I am writing about how to make money online, I may want to use a HTML hyperlink for the phrase “make money online” that when people click it, it will lead to something I’m selling.

Also, at the end of your blog posts, you would normally make a little blurb about 2-3 sentences, an author bio box, containing links to your website/s that sell something, or to a product you are selling. When people click the links and buy your stuff, that is how you make money.

You can also put Google Adsense on your blog and make money the same way.

The trick is getting enough traffic to your blog. You want visitors to be drawn to your site, so you have to market your blog and make it findable on the net. A good way to do that is by joining blog carnivals, blog traffic exchanges, posting your links in posts such as the one I’m making right now. Once you get a lot of traffic to your blog, you can start making money.

It’s not the easiest way to make money online, but it is very effective if you know how to do it right. There are many ebooks you can read on the topic to get you started. I have an online business and a blog that all started with the help of the Plug-in Profit Site. This is how I learned to make money online. Check out my blog at http://www.HonestMoneyMaking.com/blog/ and good luck with your blog!

How do I use wordpress and comicpress to create a website and publish my comic strips?

Question by Chris Loves Tiffy: How do I use wordpress and comicpress to create a website and publish my comic strips?
I haven’t a clue how to use WordPress and Comicpress to create sites and publish comic strips! Please help. Do you know of a good walkthrough? Thanks much!

Answer by Dead End
Essentially you need a webhost, either free or paid, download WordPress from WordPress.org, upload to your webhost, then download Comicpress and upload that as well. This site has a fairly straightforward, easy to understand tutorial.

You can replace Dreamhost with any webhost you want to use. Some free ones include www.110mb.com and www.000webhost.com/
