Are you thinking... that I am kidding? Is it the time for me to write about blog, when it is almost a decade and nearly some millions of articles and blogs are also spread widely. I say just have a knowledge of how and when did blog, blogging etc started. Sorry to start with basics if you already know these can skip but even then I know this globe is not a place of all highly qualified intellectuals. May be its history but to make present blogging a advanced blogging generation I felt we should know its foundations.
Blog, what is it?
Blog is an online dairy or a series of pages written in a daily basis depends may be weekly or monthly too. It is a good medium for interacting with people of this globe without moving from your home. The word blog was derived from the word Web log.

A term called niche is used these days for a particular type or category of blog. Even you can post only pictures without typing any matter. Some people also write about their products promoting there business and any official announcements.

Is having a blog so necessary?
Hilarious question if I say people quit their jobs and even some have setup their own offices for their blog simply tells us it is a medium for earning money. To my knowledge many blogs are setup wholly for money.
Next a company can also have a blog to share all their company related information it can be public or private.
For people who can’t afford for building or buying a website, blog is a free tool to play with.
