What the Heck is a Blog Really?
What a blog really is and how to get your head around this whole blogging thing…
So what the heck is it anyway?
If you’re new to the blogging world, you may still be wondering what on earth a blog actually is.
And you may even feel a little embarrassed or even ashamed when others talk about them and you don’t really know what they’re talking about.
Well, don’t feel bad, because I’ll now help you demystify this whole blogging thing once and for all…
The word “blog” is short for “weblog”, and it’s a term that was created for a special kind of website that essentially helps you write down a
“log” of…stuff… well, anything really!
In the “old” days (just a few short years ago now) a lot of people used them as a type of online journal where they could write down whatever
happened in their lives, and share it with their friends and family.
And this still happens today. But, nowadays, they are the most popular type of website on the internet – for both people, as well as for search
engines – but more on this soon…
People now use them to publish content related to any and every topic you could imagine, ranging from how to raise kids to internet marketing to personal development – in fact, almost any topic that you can conceive of.
It is really just a special kind of website that lets you easily publish content whenever you want and allowing other people to interact with
your content in the form of writing comments in response to whatever you published.
