What The Hell Is A Blog ?

Everyone is talking about blogs. They are everywhere: on TV, in newspapers, and across the Internet. With the number of blogs doubles every five months, nothing stops the power of blogs. But what the heck is a blog? To the elegant simplicity and beauty that blogs create, without a doubt have an ugly, awkward name. Blawg sounds like a sort of gurgling sound your cat makes before coughing up a hairball. A blog, short for weblog, is often described as an online journal. The most recent entries (called posts) – appear on the main blog page with links to archives of older posts. The files are organized by date and often classified by topic.

Often, each post will have a way for readers to add their own comments and give their opinion or reaction to the contents of the entry. But that’s just what looks like a blog – it does not really tell you why a blog is different from a conventional web site. The true genius appears in the blogs in the process of how write. You can update your blog instantly from any Internet connection on any computer anywhere in the world – even from his summer home in Tahiti (such as a cocktail on the island of ice cold). Blogs are designed for people who want to learn (or do not have time to learn) HTML or web design. It uses a special type of blogging software (called a content management system) to create and update your weblog. You write your last message in a simple online form.

Click “Publish” and is immediately available online for everyone to see. It’s super easy. If you can send an email, you can publish a blog. So my updated description of a blog is: A blog is an easy, instantly and frequently updated website, focused around a topic, industry or personality. A big reason why companies (especially small businesses and entrepreneurs) flock to blogs is because they reduce dependency on a computer for web design and online advertising ideas. The development of a website for your business can take weeks, even months, shopping for a designer and doing project negotiation phase to achieve final site launched. The development of a website can not only expensive but time consuming. Many of my clients have found blogs a great way to start online while they are building their businesses with the ultimate goal of moving towards a more robust solution for web design. Others have moved to all web sites in a blog format and are committed to not look back. You can create a blog and have a website in less than fifteen minutes, for less than $ 10, with the host and the software – and all without having to know anything about web design. With a blog there are ten thousand less decisions. Blogging is the fastest, cheapest, easiest way to build a website at the time it takes to watch a sitcom.
