Blogging has entered a realm of its own, from fad to industry. People are entering the blogosphere daily, thousands every day. I've been blogging for over 2 years and had no clue I was doing it. It was called "online journaling" and some called it "web diaries" or "blithering idiots writing on the Internet". I tried not to blither, but I just did what I knew and now am known for what I did and continue to do: blog. The evolution from website to blog changes how people communicate. Let's look at some of the development of blogs and help you learn more about blogging and how to blog.
A blog is a website or part of a website that usually features one or more of the following criteria:
- Editorial Commentaries
- Links to external sites
- May or may not be factual
- Tells stories
At one time, a blog would have been called a diary, journal, scrapbook, or storytelling. Which brings us back to the term website.
Many people differentiate a blog from a website. A website is "serious information", while a blog is "not so serious". A website has facts, figures, articles, and educational materials. A blog has a bunch of links, talk and comments, as well as facts, figures, articles, and educational materials.
Truth is, a blog is a website, but the terminology is changing to differentiate between a non- or semi-interactive website and the magic that compels thought and interaction with a blog. Here is something that might be on the cutting edge. It's call Battle of Blogs. Check it out.
