Facebook, Twitter, Are There Blogs

Facebook status and Twitter posts, almost every online socialites knows about it.

But Facebook and Twitter, are there blogs?

Do you relate online written-content as blogs? For examples, interesting articles or journals from online magazines, there certainly enrich your knowledge to great extent as you read them. (I’m also saying, please read mine too.)

If you relate ‘blog‘ as ‘journal’, and”re-tweet’ as ‘share‘, it’s all seems to make adequate sense to annotate blogging is also about sharing.

Blogging Sharing

I maybe correct to say that and will try to further clarify.

In English language, the universal fact is that the word, ‘share‘, can be a noun or a verb.

That is an absolutely versatile English word everyone can agree with.

But these words, ‘journal’ and ‘blog’ are not a verb; both are indeed nouns.

And how on earth does the word ‘re-tweet’ appear in our online jargon or netlingo, that has almost used it as an action verb.

The question is could we relate a noun to a verb?

Honestly, I don’t know the answer and don’t have that profound insights or linguistic talent to elaborate on these.

Aw! Just name me as a rookie!

Like most online writers, I guess there have make it a norm to verbify these 3 magical words; ‘journal’ and ‘re-tweet’, including ‘blog’.

I re-quote,

relate ‘blog‘ as ‘journal’, and”re-tweet’ as ‘share‘.

Neither am I trying to be an English educator, nor to formulate some complex mathematical equations of relativity.

I think it also doesn’t require one with prestigious profession in academia to understand this.

If ‘journal’ is equivalent to ‘re-tweet’, then blogging is about sharing socially.

Speaking Greek? Or Eureka!?

No. Not at all.

Well, it’s just that plain simple to understanding.

Blogging is sharing. Likewise, sharing is also blogging.

There could be labels synonymous with everything stylishly correct. 

So if you share your status in Facebook or in your Tweeter, you are actually blogging.

Facebook and Twitter are blogging activities in the microsphere of your social networking friends.

Generally, the purpose of blogging is to collectively journal all your favorite events in the social web, with value-add to benefit others who read your shared content.

As much as I have learnt from the elite bloggers, written-content or photograph images are most popular way of sharing your post. Creativity writings is the keyword.

Here is how Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English has comprehensively defined “journal“:

  1. a serious magazine produced for professional people or those with a particular interest.
    • For example, our daily newspaper, Wall Street Journal
  2. a written record that you make of the things that happen to you each day
    • For example, a personal dairy

To conclude, Facebook and Twitter are blogs, specifically targeting on short-post blogging.

So what are their differences from the major blogging platform such as WordPress, Google’s Blogger, Tumblr, and even the up-trending Pinterest?

Blogging, Inappropriate and Aimless

blogging, inappropriate and aimless

I started Cyperwin.com since November 2009. More than 2.5 years of blogging at an amazingly leisure pace.

Published to a total of nearing 190 posts, seem like having been through a long haul! In short, it’s awesome!

blogging, inappropriate and aimless

First ever post by WordPress, none other than “Hello World!“, still exist in the monthly archives.

I’m keeping it faithfully to date the birth this blog.

As I browse all the posts by Tags and Category, never have I realized that over 90 publications were inappropriate and aimless.

A thorough spring cleaning would possibly and probably wipe out all the old meaningless posts.

Those are mostly tweets-alike status, not blogging.

No quality content. Some are more than 140 characters, though.

How disappointing and a major shortfall in my creative content-writing.

Pretty mediocre blogging, then.

Anyhow, I did trash them away, without looking back.

Keeping rightfully the only post, “Hello World!” and embracing a better hindsight on the purpose of my blog.

There is no better words to define my older posts, therefore, “inappropriate and aimless” are best-fit. That’s the English vocabulary words I can think of, at least in layman’s term.

On the contrary, I shall not explain how not to be inappropriate and aimless for blogging. There are many successful bloggers to demonstrate on this.

Perhaps, reserving it for guest blogger would be great in the future post.

Let’s call a spade a spade.

Get it right in the first place to ‘cordon off‘ the ambiguity, before Cyperwin.com starting drifting away to the vague wilderness.

What is inappropriate and aimless blogging? To put it simply,

Inappropriate

  1. does not necessarily refer behavioral aspect, such as offensive by use of profanity.
  2. wrong information on specific circumstances. Example, “I killed a black ant while diving in underwater”
  3. irrelevant to blogging theme or mission. i.e. Social Blogging “Now I Know, so I Blog”

Aimless

  1. without a defined purpose or clear direction.
  2. no objective for achieving goals by working hard.
  3. shiftless and stray; not align to objectives of this blog.

What else can better explain with this two words?

I have drawn a clear line on the above, so that one will not cross over the boundaries of meaningless blogging.

No preventive measures to ascertain right tracking. Just be intuitive and creative.

To expound on the topic of defining blogging goal, as the case maybe, do consider guest blogging.

I don’t like formal gardens. I like wild nature.

It’s just the wilderness instinct in me, I guess.
