Here it is my last blog for the Emarketing assignment! It has always been my intention that my last blog will be about “Blogging”. I would really love to reflect and share my experiences as a blogger for the last 6 weeks! It was excited to own a blog, especially for someone who is not so fond of writing an article like me, always a bit worried about the style of writing and how to make it interesting. Before I started my first article, I researched some tips about blogging and I found that personalizing blog posts is one of the keys to build a successful blog. So, I chose to write my blog in a storytelling style and choose the topics from my personal experience of what I see and feel in my everyday life. I think it works as I know that my blog’s main audiences are my classmates, our lifestyle as students in Melbourne should not be to different, and chances are they can easily make a connection to my stories. I selected the topic from the things I see in everyday and linked them to some marketing aspects. I also find the articles and theories form Internet Marketing by Chaffey et al to support my ideas. I also did some research about how to make the blog successful and how to make the most out of it.
Because I can access on-demand TV shows, funny clips and music videos, yes, I’m a big fan of internet TV. Being a Thai in Melbourne, I also like to keep myself updated with things that are ‘happening’ in my home country, such as, political events, soaps and celeb interviews, and youtube is a terrific channel for these contents. One thing I really like about YouTube is that I can fast forward some part of the program that I don’t want to see (soaps, despite all the drama, can be super slow). Another good thing is I don’t want to watch the advertising that interrupts favorite shows. But now the advertising is not only on traditional media but now there is also advertising on the internet like YouTube, ABC iView, ninemsn, Yahoo!7 and FairFax. Moreover, some online advertisements you can’t even skip over! Well, it seems like there’s no escaping advertising in the modern world !
