But to fully understand what it is you need to bring it back to basics.
Blogging is the act of creating and maintaining a “web log”, commonly shortened to “blog.” Effectively, when you are blogging, you are creating an online diary that can be used for a variety of different things.
Blogs are created and stored online and with them you can: - keep your thoughts private and to yourself - share your posts with a small circle of friends and family - speak to a larger audience to help promote you or your business.
Starting a blog is free.
A number of blogging services exist, with the more popular being Blogger, Wordpress and Tumblr.
As your blogging becomes more advanced, you can host your own blog and purchase your own domain name.
Before you take the steps toward beginning your blog, think of what kind of blog you’d like to create.
- Do you want to just record your thoughts privately? - Are you looking for a new way to engage with potential consumers? - Are you trying to establish authority? These will be major deciding factors for all of the following steps.
