A blog is usually a web page or a web log or a short post on web which is updated in chronological order-like a news page or journal. It includes web contents, links, short diaries, essays, articles, news items and several other creative projects. It is actually a web entity published on internet. Oh…don’t get bogged down. For me blog is just a web worm which has bitten a billion of people to spread a disease called blogging mania. Blogging is just another genre of writing which includes almost all writing genres. A blog can be used for marketing, fun, employment, or an efficient source of information.
Blogging has become the mainstream phenomenon of thoughts and news sharing. Earlier any website was restricted to only informative contents but with increasing online communities coming into picture, blog has emerged as independent online body. It helps small groups communicate in a way that is much simpler to follow than online chatting and email system. It acts as an informal messenger of an individual or a community. These lay out instant messages and discussion topics as an efficient tool of communication. A blog can pool everyone to form an effective loop of story sharing.
Based on a specific genre, a blog is of different genres. It covers all areas of interests like politics, career, entertainment, personal issues, sports, automobiles, travel, books, business articles, mini-essays and several other entities. So it is not restricted to only few selected people rather people of different fields who like to share their views, can blog. Blog is an encyclopedia of news spreading which is written on mutual interest as well as some specific topics. Bloggers enjoy the entropy associated with writing and credible news sharing without underscoring the copyright issues.
So, don’t you feel that a new online culture has been evolved with blogs? Yes, it’s been.
This culture is the outcome of a new civilization called opinionated civilization. A whole new world has been created with blogging. It is an online society which has given us gossips to share, employment with our own convenience and comfort, a tool of popularity and some bucks as our additional incomes. Yes, blogging has become our outsourced income with the development of new age writing career. I know the importance of blogging and the satisfaction it gives since I work as a freelance writer and I write articles for various blogsites and writers communities.
In my opinion, blogging is an open source of interaction which stands on the intersection of you, me and internet. Everyone, irrespective of belonging to any field, should at least try blogging once and I know when this blog worm will bite you, you will not be able to isolate yourself from it. Although it may face unforeseen outcomes, it has given an innovative approach of media utility and it cannot be bogged down under any circumstance.
