What Is a Blog
So I am back at blogging today and was just wondering what you were wondering about blogging.
One of the most popular question that you and many other people ask is “What Is A Blog?”
A blog has many different meanings which I will break down for you in the simplest form.
You are now reading a blog post on Smart Human Blogger.
A Blog is a communication tool used to reach out to hundred and thousands of people on a daily basis.
A Blog can be about anything at all. You can have an interest in food and start a blog talking about your favorite foods, recipes, etc.
A blog does not have to be long, it could be something as short as just telling someone about a lunch you just had at a new restaurant down the street.
However, if you are interested in having your blog be seen by many people, I would suggest that you write 1000+ words on the daily.
Blogging Should Be Fun
Blogging can be a fun venture if you like to share your thoughts with others or even with yourself.
Some people start a blog just to talk to themselves (more like a diary).
Most other people start a blog to connect with other people who share the same interest as them.
Blogging should be something that you enjoy doing and should be genuine.
Also, a blog does not have to be all about text. Some bloggers do use their blog as photo blogs.
These people are passionate about taking photos and sharing them and a blog is just perfect for doing that.
Should You Start A Blog?
It depends on you of course. There is no rule that says you have to write or post pictures on a weblog.
It is, however, something that you may want to look into, especially if you have a passion about something.
Blogging is your own voice on the internet. You can talk about whatever it is that you want to talk about.
The internet has provided a wonderful platform where you are free to express your thoughts and opinions about anything under the sun.
I would not consider myself the best pro blogger at all, I just started this blog (Nov 5, 2016) on this blog and do desire to keep doing so for a long time.
I have set a target to write up to 1000+ words daily to show you that you do not have to be an expert in writing to have a blog.
The fact is that anyone can have a blog online and do real successful with it too.
Video Blogs (Vlogs)
Video Blogs or Vlogs are already popular on video streaming websites such as Vimeo, youtube, Dailymotion and others.
More and more people prefer to get their information in the form of videos so that is why many people are going in the direction of videos.
I personally believe that the written word is the most powerful form of communication and I will stick it for as long as possible.
Vlog(s) may be getting the popularity now, but words will always triumph over videos.
Be Real When Writing Blogs
My advice to you is to be real authentic when writing out a blog. It does not matter what you write about, it all has to do with integrity and honesty.
I am not writing for financial gains on this website, but rather for reaching out to you with a whole ton of value and some form of enlightening.
I want to be unique with each and every thought that I write. I mostly do the writing from my mind and does not do prior research.
I realize that this is not the traditional way to blog but let me just remind you: “I prefer it my way”.
I have the freedom to write what I want to write and that is all that matters to me right now, not necessary what others think.
Still, there will always be people who criticize you no matter what you do in life.
This reminds me of an old African saying. It looks like this:
Do not let your mom, dad, neighbor, best friend nor anyone else discourage you from starting something that matters to you.
You are in control of your life, so go ahead and do what you aspire to be. Do not matter what they say. They do not know your real passions and your real self.
You are the one who knows you like no other. Do not be confined to society and follow senseless traditions which have been around to manipulate us.
Wow! Was that a rant or was it true facts?
I am now coming to the end of this blog post.
It is now 6:37am November 6, 2016. I literally just woke up and started writing to you today.
I hope that you have gotten the idea of what a blog is and how you can start if you want to.
Free resources are available on blogger.com and wordpress.com.
You can host your weblog on hosting websites such as Bluehost, HostGator, GoDaddy and others.
Now, I have to go and look after a bit of breakfast for the family.
I will reach out to you as soon as possible with another blog to share something of value.
I do not yet know what it will be about yet because the mind changes from time to time and life is unpredictable, however, I know that you will find something to take away from it.
Believe me, I have a lot to talk about and I will keep blogging like the smart blogger who I am.
Your thoughts will be shared in the comments section if you leave a comment.
As I build out this blog, I will also continue to update with different tools to make your whole experience better.
As usual, I am going to thank you for reading this blog post.
Imagine, you could have clicked on a different link to lead you somewhere else online and you decided to click this one.
So, a big THANK YOU to you.
Thought for today: Go out and do something to change your life in a positive way today!
