A blog must be personally handled and written by its owner, right? Not necessarily. There are times when it would be better to outsource the contents of a blog if the overall benefit is to be considered.
It would just sound perfect if blog owners do the writing themselves for their blog articles. Reality however dictates that knowledge in a topic does not necessarily equate to writing ability. The inability of a blog owner to translate his thoughts in writing on a subject which he may know very well can be remedied by outsourcing the writing job to people who do it better.
There is nothing shameful about this. Blog owners who are after the real interest of their blogs will have no qualms whatsoever in hiring the services of professional writers either as contributors or as ghostwriters. There will be a need to choose those writers that can adjust to the requirements of the job in terms of tone and quality that will be in keeping with the general concept and image of the blog.
Many blog owners may be wary of outsourcing, thinking that they are less true to themselves when they pay other people to do the writing. Blog owners have basically two options in this situation. They either do the writing themselves and hope that their audience get them or be proactive and hire the best writers they can afford to put their wonderful ideas in writing. Outsourcing is definitely not a bad idea especially if it will result to better quality blogs.

Some blogs provide personal glimpses of a slice in life in Thailand while many provide information, both general and specific, which can give visitors an idea of what to expect when in Thailand. These blogs may contain information about practices, beliefs, festivities, and everyday life. A common format used is presenting Thailand through an expat’s point of view.
Another most popular blog form about Thailand tackles travel and food. It is usually difficult to separate the two since most travelers will discuss food while most food fare are associated with a specific area in Thailand. Still, there are blogs dedicated purely on travel destinations and Thai cuisine respectively.
Entertainment blogs are likewise many, mostly touching on topics like music, Thai celebrities, shopping, fashion, and the like. Event blogs can also be included in this category since most are prepared to entertain. Art is also a common topic in both entertainment and culture blogs.
News blogs about Thailand are also quite popular. These blogs do not only focus on news itself but also on Thai media as well. These blogs are important resources for knowing about opinions and personal views pertaining to Thailand.
With the great interest in Thailand, a corresponding interest in learning the Thai language has also been observed.

There is much to learn about Thailand and going through blogs provide an easy read to satisfy one’s curiosity about the country.

The goal of EatonWeb was to create an algorithm that would automatically filter the best blogs in any category to the top of that category . We figured that we could add value to the web as a directory that listed the best blogs first. Isn’t that what directories are for in the first place? To be reliable guides to the best of the web?
While we still have a ways to go before we’ve populated our directory to the point of satisfaction, there are a few categories where we feel that you can get a clear glimpse at the success of our algorithm and it’s automatic ranking of sites.
Hello – my name is Ahmed Bilal and from now on, I’m going to be your host at the EatonWeb Blog. You might have read some of my work at Performancing.com (which, if you have a blog, you should be reading every day). If you’re wondering what I’m doing here – basically I bugged Ryan enough with my views on how directories can be run and improved until he finally caved in and let me have a go here.
Some people say that directories are out-dated and useless. In reality that’s too simplistic – the model traditional directories are based on is perhaps flawed and hasn’t evolved with time as it should have. There’s quite a gap there – in making directories more valuable to site owners and readers alike – and I believe that EatonWeb, with it’s history and with the right people working on it can fill that gap.
So stay tuned for my first article that should show up on Monday morning. If you have any questions about EatonWeb, SEO or directories in general, please let me know in the comments section of the blog, and I’ll do my best to answer any and all questions.
EatonWeb is looking for an SEO artist and/or directory specialist to write at our blog and keep it updated with a weekly column. The position will be paid.
