What Exactly Is a Blog?

What exactly is a blog?

In the post – How to make money from home without being scammed, I talked about some of the three basics questions, I want to talk about them and other subjects more specifically?

What exactly  is a blog?

Many people might think that a blog is just a simple journal of your personal thoughts, but I personally believe that a blog is not only a simple journal that is available on the web, where people just write their personal thoughts. A blog is whatever you want it to be, it does not have to be about your own personal thoughts; it can be your personal diary, a breaking-news outlet or how I said before – whatever you want it to be. There are no rules to write a blog.

In simple terms, a blog is basically an online journal or simply another type of website, the activity of updating a blog is “blogging” and someone who maintain a blog is a “blogger” typically its postings are arranged in chronological order – New stuff shows up at the top.

Here a video that explain very clearly what is a blog.
I hope you like it and enjoy it!

A  Brief History of Blogging

Many people who are not familiar with the Internet they think that blogging was created since the internet started (I hear that sometimes). While others think that the Internet is a recent invention, the Internet has been around since 1957. But anyways, this is not the history of the internet what I’m going to say is a brief history of blogging. Believe it or not, blogging has been around for over ten years – not so long but for the tech world is an eternity.

The word blog is just a combination of the term web log. If you’re a blogger you probably have an idea of what and how blogs work, but for those who are not familiar, a blog is another type of a website that allows individuals publish and maintain content. Blogs display content (entries) in reverse-chronological order. Interactive blogs allow visitors to leave comments and even messages on the blog.
