What Is A Blog? How do I Start a Blog?

If you’re a regular visitor of my blog, you already know what a blog is. But some people I meet don’t know. I’m sure some of you faced a similar situation below.

Me: No, I’m a blogger.

Owner: What is a blogger?

Me: I write for my blog.

Owner: What is a blog?

Often, I take the word blog for granted that I don’t really bother to explain myself clearly. I found this video through Juned that explains what a blog is in plain English. Watch it.

  1. It’s good to never assume isn’t it? I’m still amazed by how many people have never heard of a blog. Then again, neither had I just over a year ago. The word is spreading…but it’ll only spread if we continue to explain. 🙂

    Came here via entrecard. Nice blog. 🙂

  2. Great post!! I’ve only been blogging for about a month and a half. I was just wondering the other day how blogs started and how it differs from a regular website….thanks for this great post!!

  3. i agree! some of my friends do not have an idea what a blog is. i have to explain pa. needless to say, they also don’t read. the rare times they stumble over is when i give them a link. that w ould be the first, and most likely, the last time theyll see it 😀

  5. I’m actually having a hard time explaining it to my relatives, including my mom and dad, and other siblings. Some of my classmates doesn’t even know about blogging. And, they just don’t know how lucky bloggers are at some point! hehe..

  7. Hi! It is just an accident that I was able to discover your blog, I was inspired of it, and still continue reading your blog post. I was able to relate our own stories. I am now also interested to start my own blog but I don’t know how to start really. Kindly please teach me how. Thanks for your blogs.
