Merits/Demerits Of Blog

s not it interesting that some of the most significant ‘revolutions’ of the last two decades have all had to do with writing? First we had email, then webpages, then mobile phone texting, and now blogs. All this reflects a trend whereby the world is becoming more formal in how it communicates. Instead of body language and endless conversations, communication has shifted towards endless words on a screen.

  1. The consumer and citizen are potentially better informed and this can only be good for the long-term health of our societies and economies.
  2. Blogs have potential to help the organization develop stronger relationships and brand loyalty with its customers, as they interact with the ‘human face’ of the organization through blogs.
  3. Blogs, in an intranet environment, can be an excellent way of sharing knowledge within the organization.
  4. Blogs can be a positive way of getting feedback, and keeping your finger on the pulse, as readers react to certain pieces, suggest story ideas, etc.
  5. Blogs can build the profile of the writer, showcasing the organization as having talent and expertise.
  1. Most people don’t have very much to say that’s interesting, and/or are unable to write down their ideas in a compelling and clear manner.
  2. I have often found that the people who have most time to write have least to say, and the people who have most to say don’t have enough time to write it. Thus, the real expertise within the organization lays hidden.
  3. Like practically everything else on the Web, blogs are easy to start and hard to maintain. Writing coherently is one of the most difficult and time-consuming tasks for a human being to undertake. So, far from blogs being a cheap strategy, they are a very expensive one, in that they eat up time. As a result, many blogs are not updated, thus damaging rather than enhancing the reputation of the organization.
  4. Organizations are not democracies. The Web makes many organizations look like disorganizations, with multiple tones and opinions. Contrary to what some might think, the average customer prefers it if the organization they are about to purchase from is at least somewhat coherent.

Freelancer A Little Guide To (Revisited)

I have been researching on freelancers for many months, that What are, Why are, How are, and Where are Freelance, Freelancers, or Freelancing. Reading many many articles relating Freelancers, Freelancing etc. and discussing it with many of my elders those who work in businesses and doing jobs. Many times i discussed it on different Forums and other blog and website Communities, where i got many information and lot of feed backs to my small 5-6 lines post about them in different forums and communities.
Here i am describing a little history of freelancers and then some good ranked freelancing sites.

Back in the Middle Ages, a knight was a member of the warrior class of feudal Europe. In those days, fighting was done on horseback with a long pole, known as a lance, which a knight would use to unseat an opponent. An author Walter Scott used the phrase '' free lance'' to describe a medieval mercenary warrior, who had not sworn allegiance to any feudal lord and whose principal weapon was the lance.
Over the years, the word ''Free Lance'' has evolved to denote a unique breed of self employed workers usually writers, designers, programmers and so on, who offer their services to employers without a long term commitment to them, and charging for their services by the hour, day or job. In many instances, these freelancers operate as a one person business. This was a little review on the history of Freelancers by me. In next series i'll describe the freelance, freelancing and freelancers.
But here i'll discuss some websites related freelancers.

Freelancer is one of the most popular and easy to use freelance websites on the internet, where hundreds of jobs are posted on a daily basis. These jobs are posted on a daily basis. These jobs include various domains such as IT, computing and mobile phones, writing, design and architecture, sales, marketing and more.

Elance is one of the biggest and most diverse freelance bidding services. On this website, the number of bids, depending on the type of account, is also restricted. Here, in order to be a provider or a client you need to pass an exam. The fee varies from four to six percent, in addition to a small percentage for payment processing.

One of the most famous online freelance marketplaces, the job postings here are quite varied. The available filters are quite granular, with project seekers instantly connecting to the kind of jobs they are looking for. Furthermore, the website has its own time keeping software that keeps track of a service provider's time. oDesk takes 10% of the total amount charged for each project.

iFreelance is a service that features a superb organisation for employers and freelancers. In a matter of two to three clicks, every job in your field is presented in great detail. One important advantage of iFreelance is that offline contact is permitted, enabling and encouraging long collaborations. iFreelance charges a monthly fee for participation as a bidder.

On peopleperhour, a freelancer with a standard account can bid for only ten projects, filtering out amateurs that bid for everything but do nothing. Because a customer can post jobs here for free, projects are numerous. Users can also post their portfolios to show their skills. To be able to bid for more than ten projects, a monthly fee needs to be paid. However, the website's commissions are high even for platinum members.

This website has two ways of navigation, one for employers, where all freelancers available are listed, and one for freelancers, which layout projects in an organized way. An upcoming feature is the inclusion of a blog that will help freelancers with their careers. Freelancers are charged five to ten percent of the project value, depending on their type of membership.
Above i have mentioned some of the best freelancing websites, these are the websites, which i have checked out thoroughly up til now, i have more sites to check like 99Designs, Project Simple and v Worker etc., the reviews of these sites will be included in my upcoming posts about Freelancers In which i will go through the history of freelancers to present conditions of freelancers.

Entrepreneur Ford Henry

The entrepreneurs behind the ideas realized that there was a problem that no one else
was solving. They then went ahead and created a solution for it, and gave it to everyone
who was searching for that solution, and in the process, made a fortune.

Henry Ford, one of the richest men to ever
walk this earth. He realized that people wanted to have an
affordable way of travel. So what did he do?
He pioneered the mass production industry and created a giant car production company. Because the cars were mass
produced, Henry Ford could buy raw materials and labour in
bulk at deep discounts, and could pass those savings onto the average Joe Blog (pun not intended) on the street.

They loved him for it, and the
evidence is shown in how
successful the Ford Motor Company became.
I am Also One of the fans of Him
