What Is A Blog Today ? - Getting Started With Your Blogging Business

 Just in case you are new to blogging or are just considering starting your own blog, or you have a blog and are just now considering monetizing your blog, I think a short introduction to what a blog is will be appropriate.

As the internet developed to become what it is today, many webmasters discovered that netizens wanted to know which websites had recently been updated and which had new information on them.  Web surfers were searching new and exciting information and did not want to have to go check sites themselves to see if they had been updated recently.  They wanted someplace they could go and see just what was new.

There were some pretty sharp programmers started posting logs on their own websites which told their site visitors which websites had recent updates or new information on them.

These weblogs, as they were called at that time, were like an informal directory of "what's new" online.  These weblogs, and the technology which powered them, eventually grew and changed to become the blogs of today.

A blog is simply a website which is written in a friendly news format which is frequently updated.  Rather than be a listing of new or updated websites, blogs came to be new news, and always changing websites in themselves.  

A blog takes the same role online as your local television daily news program or newspaper do in their respective media types.  Blogs are somewhere you go when you want new and interesting information on any given topic.  

A blog is a website which is always being updated with up to date information.  A blog serves the sole purpose of educating and entertaining people.  Just like a good daily news program, or local newspaper, good blogs provide you with a nice balance of education and entertainment.  

A good blog is one which has a lot of content, teaches you something new and entertains you a bit in the process.  For your blog to be successful you will want to make sure you incorporate each of these three things into your own blog as well.  The most successful blogs on the internet do this and do it quite well.

Where a weblog used to be a list of new or changed websites, they changed over time and exploded in popularity into today's blogs.  Where a blog used to be something only a programmer had, blogging now allows anyone, without any programming or HTML (hypertext mark-up language) skills, to set up their own blog.  The weblogs of yesteryear paved the way to the blogs of today.

With the proliferation of free blog sites such as Google's Blogger, it is simple for anyone in the world to have their own blog.  Blogger uses templates and signing up for an account and starting your blog takes all of about five minutes and you are up and on your way!  If you can e-mail and surf the web, then you can have your own blog.  It really is that easy.  And, best of all - it is free!

Today's blogs are maintained by both companies (large and small) as well as individuals all over the world.  In this day and age even your grandmother could have her own blog if she wanted to.  All she would have to do is sign-up for a Blogger account and start typing about her family, her hobbies, her pets, or whatever else she might want to talk about.  A family blog can be a great way for families who want to stay in touch with each other.  

A blog can simply be an online diary or notebook you use to publish your thoughts.  A blog can also be a more formal website used to educate people about just about any topic you can think of.  Your blog can be as personal or professional as you want it to be.  

Through the use of Blogger's great templates you can adjust the look and feel of your own blog to match the type of blog you wish to have.  You are also free to have more than one blog and can have the look and feel of each separate blog vary depending on their individual topics.  And the best thing is that both a personal or professional blog can have AdSense on it and make you some money!

Online there are currently blogs on topics ranging from workplace politics, world politics, relationships, frugal living, sports, religion, family life, children, family pets, and just about anything else in between.  Chances are if you have an interest in something then there is a blog out there on the topic.  

However, if you search and can't find a blog on a topic which interests you then that can tell you that it might be a great idea of a topic for starting your own blog and making some extra money with it!  Obviously you would need to do a little market research before just jumping into setting up a blog because you couldn’t find one on a particular subject.

Blogs are an excellent way to make money online.  The search engines love them they are easy to use, and are incredibly flexible.

A WordPress blog can become a membership site, an authority site, a sales page, a review site, an information site, a magazine and more, just by applying a theme and some plug-ins.

It is very simple and easy to make money with a blog, and this course is going to show you exactly how to make money with your blogs.

Whatever your niche, whatever your location, there are ways for you to monetize your blogs.  I am going to be assuming that you know how to set up a blog and how to drive traffic to it, because we are going to dive straight into the money making aspects of blogging.
