Do I Need a Blog?
If you’ve been on the internet in the last few years, you’ve probably heard the word “Blog”. But what is a blog and do you need one? “Blog” is an abbreviated version of “weblog,” which is a term used to describe a web site that maintains an ongoing chronicle of information. Basically blogs are used by businesses and individuals to present information in a journal or diary entry format. If you’ve ever kept a journal or diary where you record your daily activities you’ll enjoy maintaining a blog.
You can use a blog for topics ranging from personal to political. There’s really no limit to the subject matter you can present in your blog. One of the main reasons people use the internet is to search for information and a blog can become a portal to information sharing. When you do a search online for information, often times you are presented with a list that includes the blogs of many individuals and businesses. You can use a blog to communicate with those who are interested in what you have to say. For example, if you’re a mom who likes to share tips with other moms, then a blog would work for you. Or if you’re a business owner who wants to share information, you can communicate with your customers via a blog as well. Even if you’re a student and feel you have expertise in a certain area, a blog can share those thoughts with the world. Blogs are frequently updated and can include links to the website(s) that you have. Readers of your articles may find your information so interesting that they will look forward to clicking on your website link.
