Blogging Explained in Simple TermsWritten by Elizabeth Kirwin
By now, if you havenít heard of Blogging, you must be in a coma, seldom watch or listen to news, or never use internet. Bloggers are newest and most popular Ďauthenticí voice on internet.
First, letís begin with an accurate definition of Blogging. Blog is short for Web Log. To blog is to upload text onto same place on internet daily, weekly, monthly, or at least with some predictable frequency. The best bloggers are trained professional writers, people who write because itís their passion, and politically inclined individuals who need a bully pulpit for their ideas. Some bloggers are traveling long distance over an extended period of time, and they want to communicate with family and friends. The traveling bloggers do not have enough time to e-mail everyone Ė so they blog. Family and friends can check their blog for updates on their whereabouts, their adventures, mishaps, and golden opportunities while theyíre on road.
Is Blog a Noun, Verb, or Adjective?
I have seen Blog used as a noun, verb and adjective. This means blogging is a thing, an active principle, and a way to describe something. If you want to blog (verb) and do it well, best advice is to blog on a subject you know quite a good deal about. Chances are, most people who blog with a good solid background in their subject area, do not readily run out of good material. Also, people who read blogs (noun) constructed in this way will walk away enriched, educated on a particular subject, and are more likely to return.
Blogging as Gossip or for Profits
As a professional writer and a creative writer, I am enjoying popularity of blogger (noun). Why? Because bloggers are bringing back respect for individual voice in writing. Their popularity is sometimes based upon depth of their knowledge on a particular subject. Or, as in case of bloggers who helped reveal true identity of White House Press Corps gay hustler Jeff Gannon, bloggers can turn a little vicious gossip into an international news story, which I personally find amusing and enlightening. Since bloggers uncovered this scandalous manís double life, blogging has gained a great deal of attention. In fact, marketing and public relations firms are now using blogging as a tool in their whole package of increasing a clientís media visibility.
