Blog on Topic Above:
Someone's personal blog:
I found that when comparing the personal blog with the topic blog, personal blog tend to be alot more colorful and busy. While the topic blog wants most of your focus on the story they are covering. The topic blog usually wants to be taken seriously and leaves the attention grabbing to the words they have written and that only. You'll find more pictures and videos on a personal page than a topic page, although you might find the picture or video being discussed on a topic page(If this is the case it will be the only picture/video on the page).
What makes a good vanity page is covering things that the blogger is into this includes, Interests, hobbies, acomplishments. They tend to have movie reviews and other things that are of great concern to them. What makes a good topic blog page is one that is professional that covers a topic with facts with some but little opinion. Although most topic essays tend to be extremely biased because users get a chance to speak there mind. This approach tends to be really affective though and tends to draw more viewers.
On a one through five scale I feel that this research is a 3 neither supports nor unsupported thesis, although I was still very suprised with these particular results because the personal page was well put together . This research has not changes my thesis in anyway.
Above the E-zine Article
Above the Blog News Website
I found that the E-zine article was definitly more professional than the Blog news website. The text was all formated exactly the same, to give the idea that the same person might have wrote the entire E-zine article but obviously that isn't the case. In the E-zine article there are dark professional colors, as to be taken seriously. As for the Blog news site it is light colored, and less professional looking yet it has serious topics.As far as finding these sites, the blognews was easier to find than the ezine.The blog was easier to read because it was easier for me to relate to the articles written.Both these links didnt cover the same issues.As I read from both these websites I felt that they were both credible and trustworthy.I still feel that a print issue of a newspaper is more credible than an enzine, just because print copies have been around longer than online issues.
I rate this research, with a 4 because I still feel this supports my thesis.

Check out the link yourself:
I think that there is many methods that entrepreneurs have available to them in order to market their business and their ideas. People can setup their own websites, advertisements, word of mouth, etc. Setting up websites, and spending money on advertisements can be very costly on a new business. I think by blogs many business can reach many, and it cuts down their costs on marketing tools. Through a blog a entrepreneur can sell a product or a idea by writting a journal directed to specific types of people, that would possibly be interested. A product can be sold by form of a journal presenting all the benefits, like presenting it infront of a audience of people that are learning about something new.
A entrepreneur can reach millions by journal form (blog) and attracting people with his/her personalized writting, there is no guidelines on how to write or present their information. By Blogs business owners can present whatever they want in their own personalized way without worrying about breaking any rules, or being judged.This is the freedom every entrepreneur should have, to express abd sell their products and ideas in their own creative way.
The sites i found support my thesis, so Id have to rate my research with a 4 because I feel that there is many sites out there in cyberworld that promote and support new entrepreneurs trying to expose themselves,I just couldnt find sites on those specifics.
