Continuously when we surf the web we are entering different blogs… but… what is a blog? We can say that a blog is a site in which one or more people write on a regular basis and that offers its followers topics of interest. It is a modern form of expression and a communication tool most used on the web.

What is a blog? What is a blog for?

In simple words, the blog (also called blogs or weblog) is a type of interactive online newspaper where you can write your articles, entries or post, and users can read and eventually comment on it. It can also offer a space where blog followers can share content on social media.

Precisely the opportunity to participate in the discussion through the comments differentiates this “container of contents” from the classic static sites, this allows you to create an interactive relationship between the writer and the comments, resulting in future useful exchanges of ideas and opinions for general growth, which alone can do good to all.

The articles posted are cataloged in reverse chronological order (basically the oldest are at the bottom and the most recent at the top), while new articles are being written, others are cataloged in an archive, they are easy to consult, weekly, monthly. You can create links to other sites, articles within the same or other portals, with the result of being able to form a virtually infinite network.

Creating a blog is very simple, there are several ways to do it for free, WordPress, Blogger, Splinder, Blogsome, Tiscali,, Libero, LiveJournal, are just some of the most famous “platforms” for this to happen.

What is a Platform?

The blogging platform is the software that is used to publish your content on the web.
With a blog you can create dynamic real world sites with multiple pages, photos, videos… with extreme simplicity without spending anything or knowing programming languages.

Why do I need a blog?

Until a few years ago it was a tool used mainly to write your own thoughts, a kind of personal diary, but, being a very powerful and versatile, for several years it has become a great way to work, promote your business, sell products, etc. .

Some examples of blogging:

• As a journal, to write down your jokes, hobbies, passions and to create relationships with those who have similar interests;
• As a business tool to strengthen your relationship with your customers and acquire new ones;
• As a business tool to advertise your products, your industry innovations, to create membership;
• As a political vehicle to express your views;

As you can see, there are many reasons to blog, and these are just a few examples, there is no one why. It is up to you for your reasons. Whatever they are, the benefits to blogging are remarkable, whether you’re doing it to talk about your interests or to do business.
Okay, but which platform to choose?

What platform to choose for your blog?

There is no better in the absolute sense, it depends a lot on what you want to do with your blog, whether you open it as a personal journal or for particular business reasons, I definitely recommend bloggers.

Blogger is owned by Google, it is completely free and ready to use, it is regularly updated automatically and it is very easy to use; You just have to choose the name and the template (the graphic design) from those available and start writing your articles, your thoughts… Just open it in a few minutes and it will be active. If you don’t have one yet, you must first create a Google account and then follow the simple instructions.

With Blogger, you can create a test blog with a fancy name, see how it works, and then delete it with one click without leaving a trace.

If you are going to work on the Web and create your own business to work from home with absolute autonomy, organizing and managing your day or rounding up your salary, the best option would be to end up in WordPres s, you will put a little more to learn how it works (little more…) but it’s worth it.

It is not a mandatory option, even with Blogger you can do great things, but WordPress allows you to create an extremely professional blog. It is also free and open source.
What’s that?

What is open source?

Open source means that everyone can participate in improving this program; in fact, it has an incredible community of developers around the world that continues to improve and add new tools.

Although it maintains great simplicity in its use, it is constantly evolving and provides many accessories (extensions, tools …) that “enhance” and make this platform extremely versatile, adapted to the most diverse needs. In addition, you can find endless, free or paid themes on the web to give a personal impression about the graphic design of your blog.

To make a comparison of cars, Blogger is a very useful one, WordPress is a Ferrari that can win all over the world …

What is a Blogger?

Those who dedicate themselves to writing a blog are precisely called Blogger. This does not differ much from other professions since a blogger needs to work, inform himself and write in a correct way to be understood and as much as possible convey his personality and sympathy to get readers to follow him. They must also be autonomous in their content, be incisive and leave traces in the hearts of the people who read the articles. It is very important that a blogger show his personality in the post!

Don’t have a blog yet? What are you waiting to open one?!?
