What Exactly Is Writing A Blog And Exactly How Do You Use Them?

Author : Kenneth Holland

Blogging is coined from the phrase "web log". As indicated by Wikipedia, the term "blog" was created by Peter Merholz, a journalist that made the term up basically to be a joke.

A weblog is essentially a site where the content is actually shown in chronological order, usually by date and in most cases the most recent items will be shown at the top of the website.

New content material items within a blog are typically termed as "posts", with by far the most common types being copy, photographs and video clips.

The phrase "Blogging" can be also used these days as a verb and as a noun. By way of example, folks generally say an individual is "blogging", which is actually a different way of stating the individual is "writing" content meant for an internet site.

A person can be called a "blogger", which signifies "writer". All these terms are getting to be popular and are actually utilized frequently, especially throughout the English language.

Interactivity of a Weblog By means of Posting comments

Among the long-standing critical parts of a blog is definitely the 'comment' side. A great number of blogs have the ability for its users to compose and publish a 'comment' on a blog post, regardless if the post is written content or whether it is an image.

Common Blogging Types

Among one of the earliest blog sites to achieve worldwide recognition was, this was developed by Evan Williams and Meg Hourihan of Pyra Labs. permitted people to set-up an account at no cost right on the website and a brand-new user could start out blogging almost instantly. was later bought out by Google and it is still flourishing today.

Around mid-2003 Wordpress was born. is a powerful free content management system that permits users to down load the software at no cost and install it on their particular hosting server and domain. has several million users and benefits from an energetic community that contributes a variety of free modifications to the software (called plug-ins) in order to make it easy to customize.

WordPress is known as the largest open source blog software on the web.

Why Have Blog Sites Become So Popular?

Blogging is becoming enormously popular on the net. The medium allows people of all experience levels to start up a blog and post articles, thoughts, graphics and also retail items.

Blogs are known to be loved by the various search engines due to their content-centered process and their linking and page framework has a tendency to assist them to rank highly on top of that.

The Future of Blogs

As of this writing there's been increasing talk around blogging's future and the way it will contend with the huge surging popularity of Social Networks with sites such as Facebook and Tumblr.

Some pundits online are forecasting the demise (or at the least a decline) of blog sites and blogging with their rationale being a lot more people will shift their blog writing to these types of social media sites.

It is my opinion that this is a flawed forecast. Even though web-sites like Facebook are constantly providing new tools to post your internet content it's crucial that you remember that these websites will not be "in the possession" of users such as you and me.

You will always be confined by whatever policies they have in place at any given time and there's forever the possibility that one could be closed down for any reason whatsoever.

I personally will always opt to "own" my own content.
