Blogging Basics

If writing is an art, blogging is could be defined as art too. The people who are really into blogging are the ones who are artistic in their own way They carefully choose words that would best describe their feelings, sentiments, wishes, desires, and everything else. These types of blogs sometimes go rather well with the people reading them. They feel as if the know the author of the blog.

Basically, blogs were first introduced online as weblogs. This was in the mid 1990’s. They were referred to as “server’s log file.” It was created when web logging hit the virtual market. Web logging as it was called, gradually saturated the virtual community making the Internet a great source of information. However, with web logging, you still need a web site and your own domain. With blogging, you do not need your own website or domain. You just need to sign-up with a blog provider, which there are many that are free of charge. Don’t get me wrong, you can still have it all too. You can have the domain and blog in one package.

There are different types of blogs. You can have a personal blog or a business blog. I actually have a few of both. Business blogs are usually created to advertise the services or products of a certain web site or online business in order to increase their online sales. It is also a great way to add content to your website. Personal blogs are created for a variety of reasons. Like a journal, people can write their daily adventures, dreams, goals and whatever else they want to share with the world.
