Weblog, or blog for short. What is it? Why do people love to blog? What can blogs give you? For a newbie on the universal jargon of internet usage, this might compel you. But simply put, a blog is an online journal. Somewhere you can type in your rants and raves, news, upload videos, pictures and music. A typical blog would include text and images, but if you want to take it to the next level, you can customize it to your own liking. You can also include links to your favorite sites, and feature stories that you want the whole world to read on.
To tell you quite frankly, I really love to blog. At first, I was a bit hesitant to join in the millions of bloggers who I thought was just doing it because it was a fad. I was wrong. The whole phenomenon spread like wildfire when it was first introduced on the internet in 1994. But it isn’t until Xanga was launched in 1996 that people started to notice the fun of blogging. Xanga in 1996 had only 100 users then. But now, you can count more than 50,000 people which are already members of Xanga Sherry Dyson. Of course it was a slow start, but the word-of-mouth about this site paid off. And it paved the way for other blogging sites to emerge from the background.
Nowadays, I noticed that blogs are skillfully edited and multifaceted. I see many members, not only in Xanga but other blog sites tweaking and making their weblog better than the rest. I enjoy reading other peoples’ lives but I do also enjoy other more important blogs focusing on news, politics, health and many others. These sites give you informative stories and helpful guides, depending which blog you are interested in.
There are different kinds of blog. There’s the vlog, which contains purely videos and minimal text. The one which is full of links from other sites is called the linklog and the other one filled with pictures is referred to as the photoblog. Blogs can also be categorized by which type of communication tool is used to compose it. A blog from a mobile phone or PDA is called a moblog. Blogs can also be distinguished through its genre. Say a political blog is well, you guessed it; all about politics. Travel blogs are also included in this genre. Blogs can also contain legal entities for publishers; and can be either for public or private browsing as well. Blogs in the corporate world are mainly used to transact and display their businesses. Therefore, other investors can view their company much easier all around the world.
