Flush out the writer in children. Blogging could draw out a young writer and open doors to their future. Consider encouraging your child to start blogging!

Children love having an audience. The instant recognition and approval that comes from a crowd just can't be beat. Employing blogs to help develop good spelling habits, grammar skills, and develop a love for writing at a young age is an innovative concept that has potential benefits:

Benefits
1.) Responsibility/Commitment - Daily Posts
Regular updates require children to be disciplined and responsible.

2.) Communication - Increased Communication with Friends and Relatives
Blogging or journaling gives children the opportunity to connect with relatives who might live some distance away, communicating important timely issues.

Children are growing into technology-laden world. Exposure to innovative Internet technology will help them with communication skills and résumé-building.

When presented with an audience, children will want to present their "best" work.

Automated spell-checking helps children be aware of spelling errors when they occur.

7.) Typing
Getting children acquainted with keyboards at a young age will help them become familiar with their layout and function, quickly making them proficient typists.

Communication problem and what the problem with Blog and Rss

Why in the world should it be hard to reach a customer or a potential client ?

It should NOT be !

But with today's fast paced internet technology and the introduction of new applications it is getting tougher to reach the potential customer or the regular clients.

I)EMAIL : Email has been a popular means of reaching your users, clients, co workers or just about anybody in the world.

The problem over here are Spammers !

Most of the emails received today by a person consists of 50% spam emails which means you get more spam messages in your inbox compared to the genuine email which is actually meant for you.The answer to this were scripts like spam fighter and spam boxer apps.This has further created problems for the email users as now a good percentage of the email that was supposed to reach did not reach them.

II)Ip 2 Ip messenger : This interesting revolution had no barries.The user could just type in his message and the range of ips and his message would directly reach the ip addresses in the form of a messagebox window.

The problem over here are Ip messenger spammers using applications like Ip broadcasting softwares.

To stop this a new software was introduced called the Ip-spam blocker which actually blocks such ip advertisement messages.Also new operatings systems like Windows XP have introduced tweaks for such problems.

III)Rss and blogs : Blogs are a great way to create and reach your target audience.For every blog there is an rss.You can give away the rss link to the user so that the users can add it to their rss readers.Your main aim should be to get the user's attention and make your blog and rss at top rather than getting mixed in the unlimited info filled blog world and rss readers.

The problem over here is that your one RSS url gets lost in the other 15 rss urls added to the rss aggregator.

So you ask yourself a question.Is there a way to reach the user's desktop directly without any hinderances.

Yes there is.

1)Give the user options : Not every user uses a rss reader nor does every user has the guts to give away his email if on each and every newsletter signup form due to the fear of spam.
Best you can do is give user an option to signup at your blog and be notified of each and every post.With this you must also allow the user to add the rss feed autmatically to his reader.

2)Stay on user's desktop : With Blog reader solutions like Blog Exprss you can now get the undivided attention of the user by staying at the user's desktop and giving him/her the latest update without the hinderance of ip blockers or spam filters.

Blogs And Your Work From Home Internet Business

As a work from home internet business entrepreneur you have several really good tools on the internet you can take advantage of in order to build your work from home business. A blog is just one of those tools that you can use and should be taking advantage of.

In recent months blogs have become more and more popular all over the internet. A blog, or weblog, is a personal Web site updated frequently with links, commentary and anything else you like. People maintained blogs long before the term was coined, but the trend gained momentum with the introduction of automated published systems, most notably Blogger. ( http://www.blogger.com ) At blogger.com Thousands of people use services such as Blogger to simplify and accelerate the publishing process. This makes it very simple to create several 100 pages within a site all with the same look and feel but with different content. This of coarse is exactly what the major search engines are looking for.

There are several reasons why a work from home internet business entrepreneur like my self would use blogs in their arsenal of marketing tools. The number one reason for me is to gain better search engine exposure. I have several blogs already started. Two are merely work from home business article databases. Every time I write a new article or find a good one someone else wrote, I submit it into my blog which crates a new page in my site. The search engines will find and spider this new page. I also have a work from home tips blog which I try to post several good tips to each week. This is all great content for my work from home internet business web site that my visitors will hopefully want to read.

Blogs also create opportunities for more search engine submissions. Recently with the popularity of blogs special blog search engines have started to emerge. The only way you can submit to one of these special blog search engines is if you have a blog yourself. Blogs create a special rss or xml files that these search engines will look for.

Setting up your blog may initially take some time and effort but it’s made much simpler if you use blogger.com. But do not use bloggers hosting service. Be sure to use your own domain and hosing service. This will get you the best results with the search engines. Once you have chosen your main template look and feel of your blog all you need to do is keep posting new and good content that your readers would be interested in to your blog. Eventually over time you will have 100’s pages of great content that your visitors will enjoy reading all spidered by the major search engines giving you more traffic and exposure.

How to Get a Blog on the Internet

Of all people in the world I was easily one of the most pessimistic about computers, the Internet and now that I even know they exist-blogs. I think blogs are pretty cool but I never thought I could have one. I thought the processes of getting a site; domain name and the actual building of the blog would just be out of my league. I’m a complete novice when it comes to technology, but I do like writing a journal, and I thought having a journal on-line would be both fun and make life simpler for me. No more writing with pens, other people can read my stuff and comment on it, and I could add pictures to illustrate my points and make things look more interesting.

Well, now I’ve got one! It’s awesome. I won’t lie and say it was easy, but I think if you hook up with a good web hosting company it’s not such a daunting experience as you might expect. I got a few work mates to help me. I went through a couple administrative hitches when filling in my personal information forms for the registration-just because I’m a bit silly in the head. We had a little trouble with the blog program we used, but these challenges were eventually overcome. My boss says he’s going to make a simple program that people can hook up easily.

I chose my domain name: thepowerofeverythingthatis.com. It’s my own name-no one else on Earth can have it. I own it. I picked a nice picture out for the background-it looks really sweet, much better than a blank sheet in a diary. I got it from a site that gives photos out without charging a royalty (the first few): www.istockphoto.com.

I just want you to know the great feeling I got when I first typed in my domain name and my site came up! It was the equivalent to a person who’s afraid of heights being accepted into an astronaut’s mission into outer space. Or maybe it was like a turtle driving a Ferrari 300km per hour. Possibly it was like all the ants in the world getting together for peace talks.

It’s a real blast having this blog. I can write on it any time, anywhere, from my laptop, at an Internet café etc. I can write as much as I want, and I’m hoping one day my writing may inspire others to communicate with me about the subjects that I’m interested in.

Look, if you like writing about anything, and want to have your thoughts and opinions on the Internet, maybe meeting others similar to yourself in the progress; you have to get a blog and get it now. Don’t be afraid any longer, the world is in the palm of your hands; it’s time to get on!
