What is a Blog – This is one question which is most commonly asked to me even sometimes by my family and friends…
…so just thought it to be a good idea to start writing this short post to answer this very common question.
What is a Blog?
The word ‘Blog’ is an abbreviation of the term ‘Weblog’ which essentially means online diary or journal.
The person who authors the diary is known as ‘Blogger’ & the act of posting contents online in the Blog is referred to as ‘Blogging’.
Is Blog different from a Website?
I also frequently come across another question followed by What is a Blog… & that is how Blog is different from a Website?
In layman’s language – ‘Blog’ is simply a form of ‘Website’ only.
Blogs usually have dynamic contents which are updated regularly with posts listed in chronological order… the latest post is shown on the top of the listing…
…whereas ‘Websites’ usually have the static contents. For example information about the company & its management, products, services, pricing, contact details etc. These contents need not to be updated frequently.
Getting started with Blogging is very simple as it is very easy for you to publish your posts online.
You don’t need to have any technical skills for posting & publishing your articles on the blog. In fact, it is as easy as writing / typing something a document on your computer, laptop or even mobile.
