Is a blogger a profession?
Today hardly waited for the afternoon to look at the new figures. Up by two seven hundred. Already not impressive, I want to jump over hundreds of thousands of users and get among the first. Should I study the experience of the masters for this? I look at blogs that are in the top hundred in popularity based on these ratings. I see a lot of photos and videos. The text is coherent, but rustic. Mention famous names. Commenting on events a moment after they become aware of them – with some arrogance of recognized authority, a proper attitude towards them is dictated. As if behind the backs of popular bloggers there is a force that “knows how to.”
Or maybe it is? The masses have always been led one way or another, and the mass of users will surely follow recognized leaders. So, recognized leaders should be the people of those who lead. And their work is probably well paid. This question interested me, and I wanted to know if it’s possible not just to write something for nothing, but to work as a blogger and get paid for it. It turned out that there are such options, and some corporations hire experienced journalists for blogging. Several articles of a general nature attract the readers to the blog for the sake of the day, and for the sake of developing their favorite topics, they again and again come to the blog that interests them, no longer paying attention to the advertising flickering in it. Some time passes, and it turns out that people are attached to the brand, fell in love with it for the content of the blog. Sales are growing and the blogger’s lightweight pen is valued higher and higher.
This is a pleasant thing – to provoke dialogs with pretty people, and, admiring the beautiful faces on the avatars, to get pretty thoughtful answers. And it’s absolutely wonderful if it brings both income and popularity. Enjoying communication, you become a famous person, and now your opinion begins to be quoted as if you are a public figure. But indeed a doer. Acting in a word, changing life for the better.
So, a blogger is a profession, and a good profession, public, for the energetic. It would seem that you simply write, as in a personal diary, what some kind people are so inclined to. But special people come to these records – with authority, with intelligence, with influence. It’s not possible to approach such people in everyday life, but on a blog you speak with them on equal and heart to heart. There are also unpleasant encounters, but there are much fewer of them than in everyday life, if only because the alien here sweeps past his values invisibly to the person, not hitting them at all.
Dissatisfied with lazy knocking on the keys to express their attitude, because I will erase, and there will be nothing left. You can sing with nightingale, fill up, and it is unlikely that someone will ask you not to make noise, but sympathizers will respond. Separate their own, then even more their own, and every day more and more circle of the most kindred people. Together we read, listen, think – all the necessary materials are quickly delivered to your home by the omnipotent Internet.
Every worthwhile find of one in the blink of an eye comes to others in the form of a gift link. We generously share ideas, images and patterns. Sometimes we recall the aphorism about apples, the number of which is not multiplied by giving them others, in contrast to the ideas that are growing up in the eyes of descendants in the third, fifth, and tenth tribe. All that is missing is a touch, biofields and, perhaps, a game of pride. This is also interesting if you know the measure.
But all this can easily be added, because the main thing is to find each other, and then cards, high-speed transport and sellers of what embodies common interests will help. What we would like right now is to combine blogs with skype so that monologues and remarks are recorded not in letters, but in live sound, and the sound would be translated into text.
And, if we cling to someone’s languages, so that it would also be an audio recording, and text, and, perhaps, some kind of universal schemes, so that you can get into the interesting turn of the conversation with one click. Plus indexing (or tags) so that you can pick up suitable pieces in an instant on any topic. At the same time, there is a certain interpreter-interpreter to merge these pieces together. It would seem that for this own head is given.
But try from a pile of utilities, in a mixture of ordinary rubbish, quickly, at the pace of our lives, to collect something worthwhile! Without a semi-finished product, it will not work out very well. Therefore, a collector of meaning is needed from the details that we liked. And we will somehow bring the ready-made sense mechanism to mind. What I want from the blog now is somehow very close in meaning to what the whole research institutes were previously required. A blogger is a researcher and author of his scientific works.
His science is at the junction of all areas accessible to him and at the level accessible to him. It is a pity that sometimes this level is low. But the selection mechanisms work great. We are able to select employees for our “research group” among all specialists who write in languages we know.
