    There are several definitions of a blog.

    There will be people, who will tell you that Blogging is a way to create websites and add content to make money online. But this is not what Blogging is in actuality. Let's try to understand by learning the basics.

    blog (a truncation of weblog) is an informational website published on the world wide web consisting of discrete, often diary-styled entries, which are also known as posts.

    As you can see through my writing style, that I am not only trying to explain what blogging is, but I am also trying to connect with you as a reader to guide you as if I was saying these all things directly to you.

    These posts may also be displayed in reverse chronological order so that the most recent articles or posts appear on the first page of the website.

    Before 2009, blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single topic or subject. After 2010, several Multi-Author-Blogs appeared on the internet.

    These MABs (Multi Author Blogs) were not only restricted to newspaper forums, but also consisted of Colleges, Schools, and other collaborative organizations.

    The rise of Twitter and other microblogging systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into the news media. A blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

    Everything started with the explosion of the world wide web across the world in the late 90s. The emergence and growth of blogs in the late 1990s coincided with the advent of web publishing tools that facilitated the posting of content by non-technical users who did not have much experience with HTML or computer programming.

    Previously, knowledge of such technologies such as HTML and FTP had been required to publish content on the web, and early web users, therefore, tended to be hackers and computer enthusiasts.

    Websites started becoming more dynamic over the years, allowing visitors to leave online comments, it is this interactivity that distinguished the blogs from other static web pages. 

    In that sense, blogging can also be seen as a form of social networking service. Indeed, bloggers not only produce content, to post on their websites but also often build social relations with their readers and other bloggers. 

    So, one can say that blogging is a means to provide content to people around the world. It is not only a means to earn money, but also a means to spread knowledge and wisdom to the searcher.

    This is what blogging in essence is, and this is how it should be treated. 

    When websites and the internet came into existence, its main motto was to provide a platform for people around the world to connect. This also encourages everyone to share their wisdom and knowledge with others who might be looking for it.
