As I write this, I’m sitting in a laundromat, waiting on clothes to get done. And I’m not typing from a laptop either: This entire post is being done on a Blackberry.
Thanks to WordPress for Blackberry (which is also available for many other mobile platforms), it’s possible to create content virtually anywhere. We live in a super connected world and where Social Media is ruling the web, mobile is ruling how we connect to that web.
Just a couple live shows ago, I mentioned a plugin called WordPress Mobile Edition. With millions upon millions of people consuming content via their mobile phones, it’s a no brainer to take advantage of it by making your content easily readable on mobile phones.
Now, we’ve all heard one too many times that blogging is dead. The blogging world that I see is far from dead. Maybe their strategies and how their sites look, feel, and what makes them what they are happen to be old/”dead”, but it ain’t dead.
If blogging is dead, I’m the sexiest most richest person alive. Heck, maybe they’re just using that “blogging is dead” word to get some views.
Or even maybe they say that and write about it because their blog/s are failing. That’s not good enough reason.
Throughout all society and nature, changes have come about that have required entire species to adapt or die.
Blogging is far from dead. There are great changes and mobile access is just one of them. If you want to whine, bitch, complain, and get your pannies in a bunch over the platform “dying”, so be it.
Just keep it to yourself and let the real hustlers get to work.
“What do you think about this blogging is dead nonsense?”
By the way, today as some of you know is Social Media Monday, a weekly episode I do on HotBlogTips.com and today’s topic is pretty big, and EXTREMELY important. Make sure to watch this week’s episode right here.
