What Is A Blog ?

While talking to my relatives and friends about Internet Market, Websites, Flash, Gaming, Social Network, and Search Engines, i have been asked many times the same question,'' What is a blog ?'', and i have made money replies to many different people at many occasions and places, but my answers were all the time different, many people have their own opinions in telling about a single thing for example if you will ask number of people what is car, you will be answered differently all the time, that you get the same meaning all the time but manners, examples, thinking opinions will be different all the times, when i was studying about Blogs and all these, i got many different answers of it, by many different blogger, marketers and people. But what i noticed in those answers was the meaning were same.
Now first of all I'll tell what is a blog in different people's mind. I don't remember the exact names of the people those who defined it but here I'll mention only person with numbers. then lets have a look:-
A blog is a website in which items are posted on a regular basis and displayed in reverse chronological order. The term blog is shortened form of web log or web log. Authoring a blog, maintaining a blog or adding an article to an existing blog is called blogging. Individual articles on a blog are called blog posts, entries or simply posts. A person who posts these entries is called a blogger. A blog comprises text, hyper text, images, and links. Blogs use a conversational style of documentation. Often blogs focus on a particular area of interest, such as Washington D.C, political goings on. Some blogs discuss personal experiences. -Person 1-
 A blog is basically a journal that is available on the web. The activity of updating a blog is blogging and someone who keeps a blog is a blogger. Blog are typically updated daily using software that allows people with little or no technical background to update and maintain the blog. Postings on a blog are almost always arranged in chronological order with the most recent additions featured most prominently. -Person 2-
A weblog is kind of continual tour, with a human guide who you get to know. There are many guides to choose from, each develops an audience, and there is also comraderie and politics between the people who run weblogs, they point to each other, in all kinds of structures, graphs, loops, etc. -Person 3-
From Web log. A blog is basically a journal that is available on the web. The activity of updating a blog is blogging and someone who keeps a blog is a blogger. -Person 4-
These were some opinions of different people, now i'll tell you in my opinion and exactly what blogs are
The word ''blog'' is composed of two different words ''web'' and ''log'', based on posts or entries or articles, they may be based on text, images,hyperlinks, and media etc., and ordered in chronological order that is Newer to Older. Person Writing on blog and maintaining a blog is called ''Blogger'', and the above process is popular as ''Blogging"
Below are some blog chracterstics defined descriptively:-

  • Ordered Articles 
This is the main feature of blog which differs it from websites, Entries/Posts are listed with a title followed by the body content, starting at the top of the page with most recently published Entry/Post, and then next Most recent and in this way so on.Blogs basically means Diaries, which means Diaries have entries made by date and that is how blog post/entry works too.But today blogs are not only personal diaries, now they are used about appropriate chosen topics, as my, i stay on my chosen topics, Business, Internet Marketing, Entrepreneurs and Inventions. and people like you those who are interested in these topics come to read my blog.

  • Adding a Content is not as difficult as Before
Normal Websites are very technical to update, But blog changed many systems, like they provide a content publishing system so easy to use, as it became easier to manage a blog, it increased number of blogs day by day.

  • Content Updates
The problem with the Websites is their statics nature. , because it is too hard for the average person to add content to a website.
Blogs lowered the system of statics in their nature, it is too much easy to add new content on a blogs if you know how to type and how to click. So in this type of matter blogs lead the World Wide Web services in establishing and publishing content with even Images, Videos, Podcasts, Multimedia and Links etc.

  •  Comments System
A significant evolution when comparing a traditional website to a blog is the
addition of the comments function. Each article published to a blog has an input
box to allow any person from the public to leave a comment on that article.
This enhancement turned websites from one-way broadcasting devices, to twoway
communication tools. Readers can directly communicate with the author of
the content, carry on the conversation started by the article and essentially turn a
blog into a community.
This last point is more powerful than you think, and here’s why…

  • People Belief Blogs
 Blogs are communication tools between you and your readers. Blogs by their nature, are considered trusted sources of information. The successful blogs of people leads them to respected experts.

Much of what I just explained won’t be new to some people, but it lays the
groundwork for the rest of this article. If the concept of “blog” is still a bit blurry for
you, head online, find some blogs and seek examples of the five points I listed
above so you understand the opportunity that exists.

You can start with my blog,, and then explore my
articles related to blogging etc.
