Most common questions about cloud

Are you reading blog posts or just skimming them?

 

I am wondering if anyone is going to be writing posts at all in 20 years time. I enjoy reading blog articles, but I am now finding myself watching more videos instead. Do people still have time to read long blog posts? Or are we stepping into a new era of videos and tweets, where there is no longer a place for blogs?

Bloggers often tend to waffle when they’re writing a blog post and they very rarely communicate their message across effectively. With a video, it’s easy to get your message across instantaneously through a conversation like message.

 

Forbes Insight found that 59% of senior executives prefer to watch video instead of reading a piece of text, if both formats are available on the same web page (Forbes Insight, December 2010). However, 41% of execs still prefer reading and this blog won’t be closed in the nearest future due to lack of page views. We have around 40 000 page views each quarter, and I don’t see a decreasing trend. So there is hope.

 

I was recently looking at the HP Enterprise Business Channel on Youtube and saw some great videos around cloud that are worth sharing. Grab a coffee and enjoy watching them...

Blogs are a great way to share your expertise with a broad audience and blog readers have the benefit of being able to communicate directly with the author via the comments function.

While the majority of people prefer watching videos, Blog text is still important, as it helps for making the content more popular and can be used as an executive summary of what is being said in the video. You can scan a blog post at your preferred speed without missing any information, but you usually can't do that with Video: You need to shift your whole attention to watch the whole video to be sure that no info has been missed. Are you listening to music while working? Well, you can listen to podcasts and still continue answering emails for example.
