Introduction: the beginning of online content creation

Content creation, in the digital age, is something that’s become universal and almost mandatory. With the advent of social media integration, corporations must now divulge their information to a wider audience than ever before. Blogs have become not just marketing tools but a way to gain insight into different cultures and viewpoints that may otherwise be ignored. Unbeknownst to many however, the age of blogging has only been around for about a decade. This means that most bloggers are relatively young, even though blogging is something that some have taken up as a part of their career (i.e. journalists).
The first blog, or weblog as it was called then, was actually a tool for a project that had nothing to do with the content. The purpose of the weblog was to hold a primitive website together. The content was produced by the professor of the University of California, Berkeley, Wes Boyd who used it (initially) to communicate his findings in an early online world. Ironically, Internet directories were once synonymous with amateur homepages and blogs were largely unknown.
Blogging however, has since evolved. Blogs started off as a hobby that became an avenue to express one’s thoughts and opinions. Bloggers began to develop their own style of writing and eventually commercialized their work. Today, blogging has evolved into a powerful tool that can be used for almost anything. There are several types of bloggers, including artist bloggers, political bloggers and virtually everything in between.

The Top 20 Most Disruptive Ideas in Online Content Creation

If there’s one thing we can take away from the meteoric rise of blogging, it’s that the way we consume information is going to continue to change rapidly. First, let’s take a look at some of the current trends in online content creation which has made blogging a necessary skill for any employer.
The Top 20 Most Disruptive Ideas in Online Content Creation
1. The Internet’s convenience is a double-edged sword. The Internet has made both researching and doing more of something incredibly easy, but it has also made it a lot harder to get people to pay attention to you. Increasingly, people are turning to RSS feeds and Twitter as their primary source of information, but this means that if you want your content seen by your audience, you’re going to have to work at getting their attention.
2. Any form of passion can make you an expert. Blogs have also helped democratize information by making it easier for people to be heard without having a degree or qualification in something. The focus has shifted from just writing about what you have experience in to using your knowledge and interests, no matter how arcane they may be, to build a following, the true currency of the blogosphere.

The First-Ever Case Study of How a Company’s Content Went Viral

Content marketing is no longer a buzzword. With the advent of popular podcasts and blogs, creating content for your company should be a necessity. Content marketing is a great way to connect with customers, potential clients and even potential investors. If you’re looking to create a successful marketing campaign, here are some tips from one of the companies who have mastered content marketing:
The first rule in creating content is to listen to your audience. When you know what your audience wants, you can provide a solution that they want. It’s not important how hard you work. You just have to be willing to learn and respond to what your audience needs and wants.
The second rule is to keep it real. People appreciate authenticity, especially on the internet. A good example of this is the Dollar Shave Club. Their ads were so entertaining that even if you didn’t have an interest in buying razors, you’d still watch their videos. This is a great example of being an engaging content creator.
