You want to reach millions of people around the world? You can achieve this by publishing your content on quora. This is the guide on how to create your own blog on the world No. 1 questions and answers platform.
Quora connects people who have knowledge to the people who need it; it brings together people with different perspectives so they can understand each other better, and also empowers everyone to share their knowledge for the benefit of the rest of the world.
Questions-and-answers on quora site are edited, and organized by its community of users. Its publisher, Quora Inc., is based in Mountain View, California. It was founded in June 2009 by Adam D’Angelo.
Peter Baskerville, one of the long time users of quora writes in an article entitled “Using Quora to achieve vocational qualification.”
“Quora has created a unique high quality learning platform that has fused the roles of the teacher and learner and turned them into a singular experience. It is a place where teachers learn and learners teach – all within the same engagement period by the same individual.
“Quora’s meritorious ranking of content ensures that the distinction of teacher is no longer determined by academic station, age, country of birth, academic qualifications, societal status or privileged position, but rather on the ability of any writer to clearly communicate relevant solutions to real-world learner problems, to attract learner followers and keep them engaged.
“Through its UX design, core community values, admin diligence, critical mass of quality contributors and evaluators, Quora draws out our very best as we reflect on our experience to provide appropriate answers to a learner’s questions. In equal measure, Quora provides relevant streams of quality answers to questions; we may have previously considered or otherwise.”
In case you want to explore the potentials of quora, creating your own blog will be a great idea you might want to consider.
