ABOUT BLOGS AND BLOGGING


• Why I Blog (Andrew Sullivan, The Atlantic, Nov. 2008) "Its truths are provisional, and its ethos collective and messy. Yet the interaction it enables between writer and reader is unprecedented, visceral, and sometimes brutal. And make no mistake: it heralds a golden era for journalism."
• 10 Wildly-Successful Blogs That Earn Outlandish Incomes (R.L. Adams, Forbes, 3-2-17)
• Writing an Article vs. Writing a Blog Post: What’s the Difference? (Carol Tice, Make a Living Writing, 1-11-15). Here's one difference: AOL Realizes Bloggers Will Work For Free; Stops Paying Them (Erick Schonfeld, TechCrunch, 7-28-08).
• As Blogs and Citizen Journalism Grow, Where’s the News? (Rick Edmonds, Poynter, 10-31-05) The jury is way out on what business models, if any, work for blogs and citizen journalism. The noise-to-signal ratio in the new media forms remains alarmingly high. And it's time to stop this silly stuff about replacing big media.

• FTC to go after blogger freebies (Caroline McCarthy, C/​Net, 6-22-09) Federal Trade Commission plans to start keeping tabs both on bloggers accepting products for free and on the companies giving them away, the AP reports.
*****FTC publishes guidelines governing endorsements, testimonials: Changes affect testimonial advertisements, bloggers, celebrity endorsements. For example: "the post of a blogger who receives cash or in-kind payment to review a product is considered an endorsement. Thus, bloggers who make an endorsement must disclose the material connections they share with the seller of the product or service." Be aware of "the long standing principle that 'material connections'(sometimes payments or free products) between advertisers and endorsers – connections that consumers would not expect – must be disclosed." Read those guidelines!

An app is an "application" -- "a piece of software that can run through a web browser or even offline on your computer, phone, tablet or any other electronic device. Apps may or may not have a connection to the internet. The app is a modern take on the word software or application. This is why you probably only hear it in reference to a mobile app or a small piece of software that's running on a website. It's typically used to describe anything that isn't a full-fledged software program. And so on.
