BLOGGING TIPS: CHAPTER 6 (Target Audience)

We’ve discussed already several factors that will affect your blog and slowly but surely we can do this.

Another thing you have to consider is your target audience, you already knew what to do prior to conveying it to the world but knowing who to talk to is another story to cover up.

Your target audience must be between let’s say 16 since I knew by that age some teenagers would discuss about their love life, crush and things alike and ranging to let’s say 50 for elders who talks about parenting, life and struggles and so.

But if you would discuss about Gaming then your target audience will be narrowed down to males in majority who loves gaming of course, but then you still have to narrow it down to either Desktop gaming, Online Gaming, Consoles etc.

Therefore, if you want to create a blog for specific people; think like them, place your self on to their shoe.

Blogging Tips: Chapter 4 (How to choose a topic for my blog)

Since we’ve already talked about types of blogs and how to differentiate them, we can now proceed on choosing a topic.

Based on your type of blog you can choose any topic. (Note: It’s better for you to blog about a topic which you know alot about or you have passion in it than nothing at all)

If you’re a Nurse definitely you can’t blog about finance or buildings, Like Duh! You could but the credibility isn’t there and we’ll talk about credibility on the next chapter.

Let’s say you are a computer studies student, You can’t just blog about the world of computer it’s just vast. Narrow it down my friend, you can focus on Computer Programming, then in Computer Programming you can concentrate on a specific Language like C++ or Java. Narrow what’s broad and from there widen your knowledge.

Education that led to Rebellion

index

When you heard the word Rebellion, What is the first thing that comes into your mind? Terrorism? Radicals? Or Extremists? During my early years in High School, when I heard the word Rebellion, it meant deliberately neglecting my parent’s guidance, but those thoughts changed when I ventured into college.

When I was in college, I then knew that Rebellion has its own degree and category based on an individual’s point of view or how these individual’s perceive the word Rebellion. A child’s manifestation of rebellion could mean not paying attention towards a child’s environment after being deprived of their want.

Second, in a teenage mindset, it could possibly lead them into skipping classes, walk out in the middle of conversation with their parents and worst if it led to drug addiction. And finally, in an adult/professional point of view, Rebellion could mean sedition, mutiny or movement against their own government.

However Rebellion doesn’t exist unless there is a cause or an objective why Rebellion takes place. Let’s not get into too much detail and let’s narrow our thoughts into Rebellion against a certain government. According to our Professor, there are two factors why Rebels exist. Rebellion based on Poverty and Rebellion based on Intellect.

Rebellion based on Poverty:

Individuals coming from poor family background are less fortunate to attend to school and avail privileges of a good quality of education. Once an individual are deprived from education, they see people with intellect more superior that them. Another thing is when these less educated individuals encounter such abusive people with intellect they are lured towards comfort and special benefits being promised by the latter and just being used for their own interests. In the Philippines, these less educated individuals are paid PHP 10,000 (217 USD) to die for these type of people. And I came into realization that I’d rather die with an empty stomach rather than to deprive my future kids with good education.

Rebellion based on Intellect:

I am just wondering how these militant leaders fight a government with highly sophisticated equipments from barren and remote areas. And when I read some articles about these leaders, I felt amazed yet sad about their background. Some of which are rich individuals who even possessed huge companies and had lived a life in luxury. Others even excel in school as top notch in their respective fields and some are even professors in various institutions. But why are these brilliant people capable of leading rebels and fight even their own government? It’s simply because they see some fault that ordinary citizens aren’t aware and one thing that bothers me are their ideology. When they see there is a better government organization than that of their own government which they reviewed thoroughly through knowledge acquisition and research they try to create a faction to force the government towards their ideology and belief.

That’s why education for me is like a sword with blades on both sides that could either lead you to positivity or otherwise. In support to these, education plays a vital role in our daily activities particularly in perceiving the norm. we might challenge it someday according to our own logical thinking and ideology. So before we judge these individuals, we have to understand first their background. What are they fighting for, their objectives as well as their belief.

Rather than facing them head-on and using violence, we should negotiate with them in a civil and educated manner.
