However, I would argue that, despite their differences, they both have a place in the world.
My fellow Carnies are all excellent storytellers and I would add, at the risk of sounding inflammatory, that narrative has a part in blogs but blogging doesn’t have a role in stories and if it does, then it’s blogging.
There was an audible cry of disapproval from the audience, so I’ll beg you to remain with me and keep going with me.
How about a weblog?
The first step is to have a better grasp of the platform. A blogging platform isn’t merely a blog (as opposed to the content you post there). It’s a website that has a blog feature.
There are many ways you can use a website like this to generate leads, promote, educate, enlighten, or even create tales. The best way to avoid arousing confusion is not to do so all at once.
Traditionally, websites were created in the third person to promote or sell the services of a company.
At…, we’re the best in the world at what we do… and the advantages you get from us are unbeatable,… ad nauseum.
Business websites, for the most part, stay unchanged; stagnant, dull, and suffocatingly self-important.
People don’t pay attention to them and are annoyed by the lack of up-to-the-minute information they get. They cast their votes using their mouse buttons and exit the game. It’s gone forever. Anyone who has one of these sites is doing a disservice to their company.
Am I the only one that like what you have to say?
A blog is becoming a standard feature on the websites of many companies. Many people don’t utilize their blogs as often as they might. Fewer people are smitten by their company blog.
These are the people who have the ability to alter the course of history. A very different picture emerges from them. A desire to connect with another person in a meaningful way.
Clarity. It’s a stunning location.
They know what they’re doing. They are clear about their goals and secure in their own worth, so they give freely and consistently.
Their framework is well-understood and their essential ideas are articulated clearly because they feel that the individuals with whom they’re associated will benefit from it.
There is a strong desire to form a community and collaborate with them to help the planet.
They often include narratives in their blog posts. Inspiring stories that serve to showcase their ideas, show their importance and impact, and even serve to illustrate their notions.
A business blog, on the other hand, has a specific goal in mind. Wonderful things are coming your way and good things are going your way, just as they should be.
You’re working hard to grow your company. In order to achieve this, you may utilize blogging as a strong weapon. It is entirely legal to do so and to grow your community.
It’s not altruistic, that’s for sure.
But even then, it’s hardly altruistic to blog for a good cause. However, it may be used to gain sympathy or support, but the call for action is an agreement and/or financial assistance.
When you write a blog for your company, you are able to demonstrate your worth to your audience. This is the point when you should compel your audience to take action. In the long run, this means that your customers and clients will reap the benefits of what you have to offer. When they do, you and your group will profit. And so it goes around in circles.
In the absence of it, you’d be better off donating your considerable talents in the Mother Theresa tradition.
What distinguishes a narrative from others?
This isn’t a tale in the traditional sense, but rather a collection of true stories about actual people and the impact they have on the world around them.
There are several elements in my proposal that set this narrative apart from a blog post.
These narratives are being told with no preconceived notions of agenda, self-interest, or profit motive. The narrative and the storyteller are valuable because they embody the imperative of altruism, which is a care for others above one’s own interests.
I recently had the pleasure of hearing one that impacted me deeply, altered my perspective, and will likely be etched in my memory for the rest of my days.
For those who hear the tales, the call for action is clear, emotional and immediate, leading them to want to share and act.
It becomes a blog if it may be utilized to promote a cause or even a commercial end. I think it’s fair to say.
Everybody has the ability to tell stories.
I had the honor of delivering a TEDx talk. This is a story, and it can enrich, transform, or save someone’s life, and it’s up to each of us to tell it. A new blog, titled Why Your Stories Matter, is in the works as a result of this experience.
I want to put these tentative hypotheses to the test. Writing a blog and sharing your tales is an important part of today’s digital culture, and we’ll be sharing stories from all around the globe on our Why Your Stories Matter blog.
What’s your opinion?
Does a blog vary from an article of this nature?
I’d love to hear what you have to say.
