There are many people on the internet who still do not know what a blog is or why is blogging so rapidly expanding in the cyberspace. All these people deserve the right to know what a Blog is and how can a Blog be created. I feel this short and precise illustrative tutorial would help all those people who just heard of a Blog from internet, friends, or any other source of media. So lets start to find out answers for few important questions that comes in people’s mind as soon as we say the word “BLOG”.

Before applying any blogger trick, one should be familiar with all the basic information regarding Blogger.
So read through the following information which would answer most of the questions.

What is a Blog

What is a Blog?

A blog is something like an Online Notebook Diary which can be viewable by anyone on the web or internet. What do we usually write in our notebook diary? It’s of course the stuff that we like most and the things that we feel important to be recorded and shared with people we like most (usually our friends and family). A notebook diary can contain any topic that we like (examples: hobbies, songs, movies, pets, poems, stories, tutorials, personal feeling and thoughts, about family and friends, home, sports, interested activities like cooking, gardening, makeup, dancing, music etc. A Blog is updated on daily basis by the author with all his experiences or interests that he want to share which can be read by many people and will leave a comment, suggestion or feedback. Blog provides few great options like “Like & Dislike”, “Share”, “Comment” which makes the blog very much interactive between the Readers and Author.

If we write all our personal experiences or learning in a notebook made up of papers, then all our writings will reach only a limited number of people around you but with this kind of Online Notebook (i.e a BLOG) our experiences and any kind of information that we like to share will reach a large number of people on the internet. A blog is always like our voice to the world which speaks on our behalf.

With all the nice information above, I would like to say “A blog is a Personal website where we write and share the interested things with millions of people on the internet”
