With the internet revolution upon us, the world is changing and there is more opportunity now than there ever was before for the public to have a voice that is heard — especially in the world of politics. With a new President in place and everyone having an opinion of their own, all types of people have taken up political blogging as a hobby in order to have their voice heard and their viewpoint recognized. This new phenomenon is changing the way we all obtain our news, as well as changing the framework for how we express ourselves in the greater sense of the word.
There are actually more reasons for all of this than you might think. A lack of trust and interest in major news streams to the internet now becoming the go-to source for information, bloggers are quickly gaining followings that we haven’t seen before. It all comes together and makes the process of anyone going live with a personal or political blog of their own easier than ever before… while also being free, or just costing a few dollars to get started.
We are all now able to have an open forum online to discuss our views and actually gain an audience, and this is without anything other than a computer and an internet connection. This is what is truly setting 2017 apart from any other time in history when expressing yourself was harder to come by. Mark Dubowitz is the executive director of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a Washington, D.C.-based nonpartisan policy institute, and he’s also an active blogger and contributor of online content as well.
Not only can you follow him through multiple social networking platforms and his own sites, you will also find his work quoted and featured within other articles as well. You can see an example of this in the “Implications the Iran Nuclear Deal” article below, which Mark also shared on his Medium account.
With political figures, entrepreneurs and everyday people now having a voice of their own through the power of the internet, it’s now giving authority to those who are referenced, shared and featured within such articles as well.
Starting a Political Blog of Your Own?
Now the question is, what is the best platform to start a political blog of your own? For most people, the idea of going with a free blog solution like Blogspot, Blogger or WordPress.com might seem like an ideal situation. However, if you are going to start a website or blog and really want to put some time and effort into it, you are going to want to have your own domain name and hosting — this way you actually on the content on your site.
If you ever needed an example of how profitable and successful one could be in the world of political blogging and sharing world news information, look no further than DrudgeReport.com. It’s one of the largest sites in the world and generates millions of dollars in revenue every month. What’s even crazier, is that he doesn’t even create any original content for the site, all he does it link to outside resources and basically uses his website as a newspaper for the world to see.
No matter if you are a Republican, Democrats or Independent… anyone can now get started with a website or blog of their own to share their opinions with the rest of the world. Get started with your own site today and help make the noise from the mainstream media just become more noise.
