Blogging, Musings

What is a Blog?

I am asked by my friends about this usually the conversation goes like this..

Friend: “Hey, you stay all day in front of your computer, what are you doing there?”

Me: Blogging!

Friend: Huh? What’s that? What’s interesting about that? It seems boring.

Me: *Smiles*

Oh yes. I feel so awkward, it seems I’m the only person who knows about blog within the circle of my circle of friends. That is why I don’t mention them about blog anymore. I just can’t believe they didn’t know about that, It’s like everybody, even 5 years old knows about web blog. Isn’t it?

What is a blog anyway?

I gathered some definitions from different sources found through the net.

  • A weblog is a hierarchy of text, images, media objects and data, arranged chronologically, that can be viewed in an HTML browser.’
  • ‘A frequent, chronological publication of personal thoughts and Web links.’
  • ‘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.”‘

If you are going to search it yourself, you will find lots of definition that will clear your mind. Try it youself!

Still confused? Don’t be – its really quite simple. To put it as simply as possible – a blog is a type of website that is usually arranged in chronological order from the most recent ‘post’ (or entry) at the top of the main page to the older entries towards the bottom..

Some types of blog are personal blog, money making, review, for business, fan listings, etc. It really could be whatever you want. You may want to start it from free sites and explore until you finally know what BLOGGING REALLY MEANS.
