Trying to decide on what type of blog you are creating? Well, most of the bloggers have two types of blog. You will either choose between being an informative and a persuasive one.
Let’s not waste our time and let’s differentiate where you will be lining up with your blog.
First, what is an informative blog? The types of blogs are the ones you commonly see and most of them are blogs related to information dissemination, like the Unveiling of iPhone7 or the return of Nokia to the smartphone industry. It gives facts about the topic which you would like your readers to know.
The content of informative blogs usually had an opening followed by the body and of course the conclusion, there should always be a conclusion ladies and gentlemen. If these make things complicated you might want to visit my blog regarding ABC of blogging.
While the persuasive blogging, on the other hand, is a bit tricky and sometimes it bends into being informative but you can see some difference between the two, most of the persuasive blogs are the so-called “call to action” blogs, these are the ones publicized by outsourced press blogs, individuals who provide social works and even nature lovers out there but most of the time these are based according to the writers own opinion about the topic unlike informative which give facts.
There is a bit of discrepancy between the two, persuasive blogs encourage their readers to do something after reading their blog or a question to be answered through action based on how the writer persuades his readers. One of which are election bloggers, “Why do we need to vote for Clinton?” so like informative it will provide some details about her then the writers own opinion about it and at the end of the blog there is a call to action “So, will you or will you not vote for her? The future of our country lies in your hands”.
So basically these are the two types you’ll be considering when creating a blog.
