    Blogging 101

    If writing is an art, then, blogging is one way of using words to come up with an art. This is because people who are into blogging are the ones who are artistic on their own sense, carefully choosing words that would best describe their feelings, sentiments, wishes, desires, and everything.

    Basically, blogs were first introduced as weblogs that refer to a "server's log file." It was created when web logging hit the virtual market. Since its inception in the mid-1990s, web logging gradually saturated the virtual community making the Internet a viable source of greater information.

    However, with web logging, you still need a web site and domain names, but with blogging, you do not need anything just an account with blog providers. In most cases, these kinds of blogs are free of charge.

    With the onset of blogging in the industry, personal journaling had been a common ground for people who wish to be known all over the world. However, not literally famous as this is not a case on being popular or well-known personality.

    Generally, blogs are created for personal use. Like a journal, people can write their daily adventures, sentiments, and whatever ideas they want to express online.

    Nevertheless, with the advent of the online businesses, blogs had gradually taken the limelight in providing businesses a chance to boost their productivity online. This is where the business blogs have taken the limelight.

    Business blogs are, basically, created to advertise the services or products of a certain web site or online business in order to increase online sales.

    Moreover, business blogs are also one way of promoting the company so that the other readers will know that a certain company exists online. With blogs, entrepreneurs are able to establish a name in the virtual market through articles that can be very useful in the reader's life.

    From there, you can make money out of blogs by simply syndicating it to your business' web site. This can be done through the RSS technology.

    So, if you are thinking to create a blog, whether for business or for pleasure, you need to know some tips that could help you get through and make your blog one of the interesting blogs online.

    Here's how:

    1. Consider your audience

    Even if your blog is generally personal, still, it would be better to consider the minds of your readers. You have to think of something that would interest them.

    After all, most of the reasons of people who write blogs are not at all confined to their own personal motives. Most of them would love to be "heard" (or read) and would love to be known, in some way or another, even for just a minute. Hence, it is very important to come with a write up that everybody can understand, not necessarily that these people can relate to it but they can understand it.

    2. Pictures speaks a thousand words

    To make your blogging worth the browsing effort of your readers, it would be extremely nice if you will put some pictures in it. It does not necessarily mean you have to place a picture of yourself. Any photographs will do as long as it does not pose danger or insult to anyone who will be reading your blog.

    3. Make constructive and beneficial blogs

    Even if you are free to write anything you wan to say to the world, still, it would be better to create some write-ups that would be beneficial to your readers.

    After all, its information technology that you have there so better be inclined to provide information rather than sheer quirky entertainment.

    4. Avoid making multifaceted and complicated blogs

    In order to have an interesting blogs, try not to use some highly technical and highfalutin words. After all, it is not a science discourse or a debate that you are making, so better stick to simple facts and short blogs.

    Bear in mind that most people who use the Internet usually do more scanning than scrutinizing each site word for word. Therefore, it would be better to come with blogs that will not bore your readers just because you have these lengthy articles.

    5. Make it interactive

    As much as possible and if your capacity will allow it, make your blog interactive. Yu can do this by placing some video or audio clips in your blog.

    You can even place an area for comments or for some feedbacks. In this way, you can get some impressions or reactions of other people. Who knows, you might even gain some friends just by making them feel at home in your blog site.

    Indeed, blogs are not created just for the mere fun of it. It also has its own purpose in the world of the Internet.
    Therefore, for people who wish to harness their craft, as far as writing is concerned, blogs are the best way to do it.

    As they say, blogging is the contemporary term of creative and commercial writing.

    nice tips for beginners, I always advise my friends (which are not in internet marketing) to write blogs about their hobbies, artwork, everyday life...there will always be someone to read it if it's done with the hurt, it's 6 billions of us, must be so many similar souls, place google ads on them and have some pocket money for beginning.
    I copy/pasted your post to some friends, I hope you don't mind.

    all the best,
    Dimitris
