As a veteran blogger, I would like to share my 12 years of blogging in this with prospective bloggers. Blogs capture the readers from all walks of life because they are interactive

Have you ever heard of ‘blog factor’?

So what’s this “blog factor“? A unique concept planted in the cyber world several years ago has now evolved into such a proportion that no one expected. About 7 years ago, the estimated number of blogs was approximately 9 million and added to that, about 50k blogs were launched every day.

What is a blog?

Simply put, blog is a digital diary stored in the cyber space by individuals and corporate bodies. Blog (short for Web log) is a place where you and I update latest information that interests us.

We can blog about:

  • Our current thoughts
  • Opinion after reading a news, watching a movie or after reading a book
  • What we saw on the road, who we met by chance
  • A product or a service that we recently bought

Do you know that some blogs are nothing more than a daily glimpse into someone’s life, while others contain sophisticated content?

Why a blog?

As previously said, They are your personal digital diary that anyone can read and also, who doesn’t like others attention to ones dreams and opinion. It is a surefire way to get all the attention you crave for.

Every search engine has a deep love affair with blogs because of fresh content that gets updated every second somewhere in the world.

When you have completed one year of blogging, you would have slowly evolved into a professional blogger which means you will start earning money through various avenues, the prime being the Google AdSense where the king Google will serve advertisements of its clients on yours and you are paid a certain sum of money for every valid click on the ads.

Every big corporate body, every famous brand including Coke and Colgate will have their blog alongside their website because through their blogs, they can propagate their products quickly and effectively in the Internet and that too by spending negligible amount.

What to blogging about?

Ah, there is no dearth of topics to blogging about. Just about anything we talk about to our family, friends, colleagues and strangers can be an interesting blogging topic. As they, you can write about anything under the sun without hurting another human being.

I once read about a novel author’s blog where every character of his fiction became blogging topic! What a creative idea! It was a sort of the novel’s character’s diary.

Blogging subjects are found in hundreds of categories and further divided into hundreds of sub-categories. The blogging ideas are just countless. All you require is a basic interest on the topic that you wish to blogging about.

So, how to launch a blog?

Creating a blog is very easy. All you have to do is register yours in, and you are on your way. It can be completed in about 5 minutes provided you have decided on the name of your blog and a brief description of your blog.

To create yours in that is owned by Google is totally free. Yes, you can start a blog free of cost and even you can make money out of it!

Wow! Wouldn’t you be interested?
