Just a private diary?
Originally, blogs were mainly operated by private individuals. Many of them are looking for attention and opinion in the big virtual world of their own life feeling and style.
Not a few of them are on the net, they run their blog like a big public diary. Not so long ago I discovered in a blog of a young, self-proclaimed lesbian and apparently very unconventional woman in the midst of her everyday experiences the longing cry “Hello, is someone reading and reading me here ?!”
Themesblog and Acquiseinstrument
Is it a themblog like Best of HR – Berufebilder.de®on which this post appears? In the foreground tendencies and developments of our professional environment stand, at the same time however also a kind of the elegant acquisition over the contents form - as Simone Janson itself quite bluntly says.
Through none of her 20 books and other publications, she has garnered so much attention as a writer, consultant and lecturer. In the medium to long term, a variant of the theme blog can also lead to a separate business area: the visitor frequency attracts advertisers.
The 3 cardinal errors of corporate blogging
Or is it one? Companywho wants to communicate his messages in this form of the world? Look, that's our product, that's our service. The so-called corporate blog has so far mainly been at the group level. As a rule, the corporation multiplies its message through its employees.
And here are threatening three big pitfalls, if the blog operator magnanimously overlooked them:
- The employees are degraded to the jubilation group, which reads already after one or two posts verflixt unauthentic and unbelievable;
- The company plays Heile Welt, everything from its business area runs excellently and is unassailable,
- As a direct result of the first two cardinal mistakes, the company “prostitutes” its blog into a pure advertising tool.
Corporate Blogs with themed topics
Or is it the special form of a corporate blog, which, so to speak, integrally conveys its identity via the themed rail, its interpretation of the environment in which the operator moves professionally. With the focus on the interpretation of events - free for discussion.
Such blogs are still very hesitant in the industry of business consultants and coaches, as well as journalists and book authors. Here, too, the trap of (self) advertising lurks in analogy to the group's blogs. If self-reflection is overly unimpressed - we can praise this, we have been praised - this leads to disappointment among blogs.
It is not the ego that is supposed to carry the message, but the message the ego
Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin group of companies, deals very cleverly with the insight “Not the I should convey the message, but the message the I” in his “leased” blog at LinkedIn: He regularly posts wisdom there and positions himself on events in Economy and society. With an extremely positive response, which I would like to reproduce here in full: “You arguably have one of the best social media feeds on the web, and the fact that the majority of your posts focus on social entrepreneurship, environmental conservation, ending the war on drugs, and encouraging a beautiful version of socially responsible and sustainable capitalism… it hasn't gone unnoticed. Rarely have I seen you use your feeds to directly promote your own businesses, apart from the occasional kudos or highlight of something really cool. Not only this admirable, but it's brilliant executive leadership and has really enabled you to refined the “idea” of what the Virgin brand overall represents into something beautiful, positive and world-changing, making it more than just another brand. Anyhow, just wanted to deliver a little kudos where it's earned. Keep it up! ”
