Well…..what is it?

So, I finally decided to make one of those things people have been ranting about – a blog. I’ve gotten a few questions from family and friends of what a blog really is, so let me briefly explain. The word “blog” is shortened of the word “weblog”. Kind of like two words put together; web and log. The web aspect comes from the simple fact that blogs are typically (95% or more) on the internet or the web. The log part comes from “logging” or posting news, ideas, or opinions as if it were your journal. Blogs are usually written in an informal manner, too. The newest entries are typically at the top of the page and older entries are lower on the page. Blogs are often interactive. Visitors can leave friendly (or not so friendly) feedback by commenting on your posts; thus giving you an opportunity to build a conversation and trust with the visitors. This is especially important with blog marketing and businesses. Any questions, comment below 🙂
