10 Steps to Creating a WordPress Blog

10 Steps to Creating a WordPress Blog | brave new world | Scoop.it

Hey there! My name’s Ryan and I am another new member to the SEER team. I’ve learned so much since starting at SEER but I thought for my first blog post I would cover something I have some background in, WordPress.

 

I am helping to set up SEER’s upcoming blog on SEO for college students and I thought I would share the checklist I go through every time I start a new site on WordPress. If anyone’s New Years resolution was to finally start blogging then hopefully this post will give you a few ideas and tips or possibly save you a headache down the road.

 

The great thing about WordPress is that it really does simplify every step of creating and running a site. I was in a meeting with SEER’s developer Chris Le and half the time I thought he was speaking a foreign language when talking about advanced site design. I know some coding basics but thanks to WordPress and the plug-ins and themes created around it I’ve built more than a dozen sites ranging from your basic blog all the way to e-commerce and password protected membership sites.

Natural Evolution of a Web Community (& how to beat it)

Natural Evolution of a Web Community (& how to beat it) | brave new world | Scoop.it
The typical evolution of a Web community looks and sounds a little something like this:

 

Stage 1: I love dogs! OMG, do I love dogs! If only there was a Web community to connect with others who love dogs.

Stage 2: Must. Get. Word out about my new dog community. Must host many constructive/ intelligent conversations, unlike those OTHER sites about dogs where users just howl and whine. We will be different. TELL YOUR FRIENDS! Send everyone!
Stage 3: Dude, people are joining! Operation: Let’s Talk About Dogs is becoming a success! I am so smart! Floodgates open!
Stage 4: People really are talking about dogs! They love dogs! They love my site! Community rules!
Stage 5: People are talking about EVERYTHING, not just dogs! YEY! Harmony! Bliss! UNICORN FAIRY!...

 

Don’t let the Internet win...

Content Curation Tools: 5 Different Approaches

Content Curation Tools: 5 Different Approaches | brave new world | Scoop.it

According to the Romain Goday, there are five distinct approaches to content curation. They are: 

 

1. The Expert Approach: Curators
A way to obtain relevant information with a reduced level of effort is to rely on experts. 

 

2. The Crowd Approach: Popularity
Most content curation tools use a series of algorithms to determine which content is popular and make it more visible to users. 

 

3. The User Behavior Approach: Personalization
Content personalization involves using technology to accommodate the different information needs between individuals. It surfaces content that is assumed to be more relevant for a specific user. 

 

4. The Relationships Approach: Social Graph

The social graph is an increasingly used approach to curate information. 

 

5. The Patterns Approach: Emergence
This approach consists of representing the emergence of content over the Web.

 

And for each one it provides an in-depth description, pros and cons as well as example of real tools utilizing that approach.

 

He concludes with a simple but insightful point:

 "Most of those approaches are combined by content curation tools in an attempt to increase information relevance for the users. 

Tools cannot effectively understand the context of the user.

So the challenge is to reduce the noise without filtering information that could be valuable for the user.

7 Unwritten Rules Of Social Media

7 Unwritten Rules Of Social Media | brave new world | Scoop.it

Social media seems easy especially because the barrier to entry is low. You can be up and running on any social media platform in minutes, and usually for free. In reality, social media is hard for exactly the same reason. When the barrier to entry is low, the barrier to attention is high.
