Bloggers United

Blogging can help unite those who surf the internet with similar interest. By blogging they can share their thoughts by posting whatever they want and the people who read the post can freely write back. They can respond to blogs without holding back because chances are that they’re writing back to someone they don’t know. Out of the six billion people in the world a little over a billion have access to the internet. Out of those billion people some of them have to have things in common. From talking about politics to gaming and all in between there is something for everyone and by looking it up the right way everyone can find something that suit there interest and write about it. Blogging is all about writing to an audience to get responses, and to see how others feel about what the blogger talking about.

An example of how blogging can help to open up minds in on Blogging from EA Today. There they are talking about how women are becoming bigger gamers, even until the point that conference about women gaming coming up. It goes unnoticed how many women enjoyed games. The blog is short but she talks about getting to the conference and meeting some of the legendary female gamers. An interesting part was the responses that were made after the blog. There are always going to be people who are sexist towards video gaming. These comments came between two people. The guy talked about how the companies attract female customers. Basally he said that ladies only buy board games. The lady responded by saying since there is 38% of ladies playing gaming counsels that there must be some playing video games. In the last response the guy admitted that he was mad that girls had a game conference and that he wasn’t invited.

The gaming blog is a good example of how blogs can unite people with similar ideas as well as sway opinions. People can say whatever they want in responses. The guy who was responding to that blog sounds like an idiot. He gets his opinion sawed by a lady and he also emitted to a little jealously. I’m sure if he knew the lady that responded back he would not have said anything. In turn he didn’t hold back his feelings of women gamers.

Blogging helps see what others who are like you feel about what’s going on in the world. Over the internet you can express how you feel around people who are going through the same thing that you are going through as a citizen. On Gas Prices you can find people making comments about them. One thing that everyone has in common is that everyone has a problem with these gas prices. It’s relieving to see that people feel the same way that you do about things that affect your every day life. What is amazing is that it’s happening all over the world. People from Sweden have seen gas prices reach the equalvent of six U.S dollars. Its becoming a world wide problem and everyone is acknowledging it. People are in shock. As an anonymous writer put it, he said “ Are we getting to the point where people will have to change the driving habits to beat the system” because stats show that prices are going up but people are still buying gas at the same rate as they were when it was under 1.50. Another thing that was on this website was that these people are just like me. People trying to support themselves have one more thing to worry about. They’re outraged and by stating how they feel about gas prices they are catching the attention of others that are reading there blogs who feel the same way.

In the end you can see the blogging helps unite people with similar ideas and interest. With the internet being so easy to access it’s quickly becoming the best form of non-verbal communication. We can see people debate online about a certain subject. This was shown in the firs blog when the guy thought that a women’s gaming conference was a waste of time. He also thought that women gamers weren’t real gamers at all. The women disagreed and supported her position with facts. We also see that people blog to talk about things that affect them in everyday life. As we seen in the second and third blog about gas prices people have the same opinions. Everyone was saying when the gas prices are going to go down for good. There was lots of outrage and strong opinions about gas prices. It also seamed that the people’s opinions were about the same. Blogging is a beautiful world. I’m proud that I am a part of this world.
