  1. Perfect BloggersTech

    Reblogged this on Blog of an e-marketer by Main Uddin and commented:
    A majority are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via GUI widgets on the blogs, and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites. In that sense, blogging can be seen as a form of social networking service. Indeed, bloggers do not only produce content to post on their blogs, but also build social relations with their readers and other bloggers.There are high-readership blogs which do not allow comments, such as Daring Fireball.

  2. ‘Write a list instead of a blog post. “I’m sure no one will mind!”’
    Well, I sure don’t mind.
