Short for weblog, create a blog to express yourself to the world. For anyone that has ever put a pen to paper, or even had an opinion in their head can, and should, create a blog. Blogs are perfect for practically any thought ever expressed. Good or bad. Blogs are freedom of speech on steroids. Where else can you share your thoughts on everything from the civil war to civil rights? You can create a blog about your dog’s eating habits. Your topic is only limited to your imagination.
Blogs are truly the essence of the internet, they provide an automatic audience for whatever you would like to share with the world, it’s like an electronic soapbox. As technology advances, I can’t imagine what blogs will be like in 20 years. You can create a blog with pictures, movies, audio, and obviously the written word, which still is the most powerful.
It is truly amazing how far the internet has come, and yet we are just getting started. Just think, there was a point in time, not that long ago I might add, that it was widely believed that no one would need a computer in their house. Now some people take them with them where ever they go.
When you create a blog, you are creating a time capsule of what ever you want and letting the world see it as it is being created. The first thing that you should do is read as many blogs as you can before you create a blog. This way you can see the different ways people express themselves to give you ideas on how far you want to go.
Another incredible thing about blogs is that you don’t have to learn how to speak another language to create a blog. You can have a blog up and running in about 5 minutes at no cost.
It only makes sense that google would jump both feet into the blog world, if they didn’t invent it, they sure helped make it what it is today. Blogger, which is run by Google, has made it as easy as they possibly could to create a blog, in just under 10 clicks of a mouse you can be telling your story to the world.
Who would have ever thought that you could get paid for writing about the events of your life? When you create a blog, companies are more than happy to pay you a commission for customers that you send to their website. Once again, Google has made that process very simple. With Google AdSense, you agree to put advertisements on your blog, and when someone clicks on that advertisement you earn a commission. Depending on how many visitors you get to your blog, you can earn a good amount of money for basically doing nothing.
One word of advice, well maybe two words of advice are, DO IT. You might think that you can’t write, but I can tell you once you get started it will come easy to you. Don’t worry about spelling or grammar, just get started. The world is waiting to hear your story about how you feel about world affairs or affairs of your world.
