Blog It!

As per Wikipedia, a blog is a type of website that is usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events or other material such as graphics or videos. In other words, it is now one way of personal expression; a personal diary of some sort

The word web blog was coined by Mr. Jorn Barger on December 17, 1997 but the short form “blog” was coined by Mr. Peter Merholz, who jokingly broke the word weblog in the phrase “we blog either in April or May of 1999.”

It seems now that whenever and wherever you are, you see different kinds of blogs everywhere. And yes, not only are they interesting, they are every bit informative and colorful as well. Another fantastic thing about it is that it is highly-interactive. Friends or strangers can leave comments and blogs encourages a high command of camaraderie and friendship. There are different styles and kinds of blogging – from art blogs, photo blogs, music, videos and podcasting. There is another kind too, the microblogging, wherein very short posts are featured.

Personal Blogs are commentaries of an individual – the most traditional and the most common of all blogs. Usually the blogger takes a high sense of pride in his or her work, though most of the time, his or her blog never gets read at all. The goal however is never to please, but to express and to communicate. Blogging has become a way of life to express a thought, a certain emotion and yes, a personal reflection.
