From the day I have started blogging….! People contact me via Email, Instant Messages, SMS, MMS and face by face for many Problems and Tips and Tricks of Daily Life…!
So, throughout all of these communication ways, We get at least one Mail, SMS, MMS, and my own Friends usually ask about that

WHAT IS A BLOG?

  • I can explain in various ways ranging from the Innocent to Highly Technical Mind

WHAT IS A BLOG?

  •  Short for Web log, a blog is a Web page that serves as a publicly accessible personal journal for an individual. Typically updated daily, blogs often reflect the personality of the author. (Source)
  • Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (Art blog), photographs (photoblog), videos (Video blogging), music (MP3 blog), and audio (podcasting). Microblogging is another type of blogging, featuring very short posts. (Source)

In My Point of View (Simple Way):

  • A blog (“a contraction of term “web log”) is a type of website, and is a Personal Diary. A Breaking News Shoutbox, Collections of Thoughts, a wide space to Share Links, Photos, Graphics, Videos, Data in the form of Chronological Way and a good way to EARN MONEY online  etc.

Requirements:

1. The Topic:

Blog is not bound to any topic though it can be any of your favorite one i.e. Photography, Personal Diary, a Magazine, Helping Platform. It is the place of sharing all that stuff with the world.

Note: Before starting a blog, you should have to do huge brainstorming about the topic. You should choose a topic that can attract a huge number of traffic (users) – you can have a blog about Tips and Tricks, How To etc.

2. Update:

Your Blog should be updated regularly in order to increase the number of users on your website and also your ranking on the globe of Internet.
