Beginners Guide to Blogging

BloggingHi guys, today I'm going to talk about blogging.

Basically a blog is like an online journal. You can digitally record down your ideas, thoughts, opinions or anything for people to read.

Blogs come in different styles, formats, and settings, depending on the preference of the user. Many blogging sites, offer built in features such as hyperlink, straight texts, pictures etc. Some blogging sites, even allow you to put video and mp3's on your blogs.

Instead of writing texts, some bloggers choose to make their blogs more audio friendly, by using spoken word entries. This is called audio blogging or podcasting.

Basically a blog contains these features:

Title- the name of your post/article.
Body- this is the content of your post.
Trackback- links from other sites to your blog.
Permalink- the URL for your that particular post/article.
Comments- for readers to post their opinions/comments on your blog.

Bloggers that use any of the blogging sites has an advantage, because it's made up of only a few templates. Unlike, other websites that is made up of numerous individual pages. This make it easier for blog users to create new pages, because it already has a fix setting that include: slots for title, body of the post, category, etc.

This is very useful for new blogger and they can start blogging right away. They just have to choose a template provided by the blogging site... and Wahla... you can start blogging.

Blogging is not just limited to personal usage. There are a lot of blogs that follow a theme such as: sports, politics, music, etc. This way blogging becomes a medium in which people can share their knowledge and opinions about a variety of themes and topics.

Some bloggers even use their blogs to advertise. Some authors advertise their books on their blogs. While other bloggers, use their blogs to shed light to currents issues, events and news.

Nowadays Professors are also using blogs to document the lessons that they have discussed and taught in class. This way, students who who have missed classes, can easily catch up with their assignments.

The most popular blog type is the one that takes the form of a personal journal. This is the kind that is usually used by first time bloggers. To express themselves, they use blogging to document their daily struggles in lives, poems, rants, opinions, etc.

Bloggers usually communicate within themselves. This is one of the appeals of blogging. It creates a community of people sharing their ideas, thoughts, and comments with each other.

Blogging is popular all over the world and it's a short term for weblog.

There are plenty of famous blogging sites to choose from,such as: Blogger/Blogspot and Wordpress.
