    • Objectives & Intended audience
    • Anonymous or not?
    • Group or individual?
    • Any advanced features planned (podcasting, photo blogging)?
    • Budget?
    • How techno-savvy are you?
    • Ambitious about becoming a thought leader?
  • 60. Four Options
    • Social-networks with blogging (LiveJournal, MySpace, Yahoo’s 360 Degrees)‏
    • Hosted blog-only platforms (i.e. Blogger)‏
    • Self-installed blogging (Moveable Type, Wordpress, etc)‏
    • Web-hosts with pre-installed blogging (most of the professional blogs)‏
  • 61.  
  • 62.  
  • 63. Getting noticed
    • Tagging your posts  appearing on Technorati
    • Automatically adding your posts to del.icio.us and digg
    • Linking to other blogs and articles  Trackbacks
    • Writing comments on other people’s blogs
    • Write, write, write—most of traffic on all blogs is generated by Google searches!
    • Let others take your content—set up a Creative Commons license; specify your terms!
  • 64. Wider Applications
    • Hard to make money yet; but can be a good complementary tool
    • Intended and unintended consequences on your career
    • Increased visibility: good for some things, bad for others
    • Can easily turn into an important pundit whose opinion is sought
    • Can be a very easy break into mainstream media—a great career in journalism
    • Can eventually write a book, like most famous bloggers do!
