I guess you are new to blogging, and you are reading this post to know what is blogging and what a blog is all about. Here on this article, i’ll explain the differences between a blog and blogging. Let me start by explaining what a blog is before we move on to explaining blogging.
What is A Blog?
In reality, the word Blog is derived from the conjunction of two these words Web and Log (weBLOG). A Blog is a kind of website or part of a website usually controlled by an individual with description of events or tutorials which may also include videos. Most blogs allow their visitors and people who visit their site to comment on articles written by the blog owners or authors. Usually, the persons writes articles which are in his/her area of interest, and this is referred to as a Niche. One particular feature of a blog is that it focuses on a particular niche or topic of the owners interest. All blogs have a few things in common which I want to list out.
1. All blogs usually have archives.
2. Content of a blog are chronologically listed articles from newest to oldest.
3. Blogs have RSS Feeds.
4. Comment box after each post where visitors can leave comments.
5. Each blog entry has date, title, body, post etc.
Now, let’s go to the next subtopic which is explaining blogging
What is Blogging?
Therefore, blogging is a system where a passionate writer creates or builds a blog(web log) on a particular niche or topic of his/her interest for the world to see his/her view on that topic. Blogging in recent times can earn you cool cash over the internet if you can pull lots of traffic. There are series of free blog host on the internet that let you write what you are passionate about and still make money, but that will be discussed in a later post.
I hope this helps.
