What is a blog and why is blogging so popular?

What is a blog and why is blogging so popular? This is one question I know for a fact many people search for on search engines. It comes up regularly when I am researching keywords for my blog posts. So I decided to write this post to help answer some question surrounding the blogging industry.

 

What is a blog?

A blog like Fashion and Style Police is a regularly updated website/web page usually owned by an individual (blogger) and written in a conversational or informal style. Blog posts are articles that appear on the blog and they usually include pictures, texts, videos and animated GIFs. A blog can set to private or public. If set to public, your blog posts can be accessed on the big wild web by anyone except you set up specific blog posts to private access only.

The difference between blogs and websites

A blog can appear as posts on one page or individual pages. Posts are usually displayed to readers in reverse chronological order with the most recent content appearing first, unlike a regular website. Many confuse blogs for websites, and websites for blogs.

A website is updated with fresh content less frequently than a blog. Blogs usually have weekly, daily or even less than hourly updates. Also, blogs have comment sections to encourage online conversations about the blog content. This is not the case with a regular website.

 

Why are blogs so popular

Blogs are popular because people enjoy reading and writing them. Good blogs entertain, educate and inform their readers, which is why their readers keep coming back. Great blogs attract hundreds/thousands of views on a daily basis and this is because they play a role. Blogs provide a social outlet separate from social media platforms. Reading and commenting on blogs is a way to socialise online and at the end of the day, we are humans like to socialise one way or the other, and blogs provide that platform to interact with people all over the world. These are some of the reasons why blogs are so popular today.

If you are thinking of starting a blog, I would advise you to go ahead and do it. Many people believe the blogging industry is saturated and yes it is saturated but there is always room for a great blog. If your blog stands out from the rest and you have something to offer, then you will have no problem attracting blog views and followers, which will eventually lead to you making money from your blog. I offer a blog coach service that will help you grow your blog if you are struggling to get it going. Do get in touch if you want to hear more about the service.

Do you have a blog? What make you set one up? Are you thinking of setting up a blog? What is holding you back? Let’s carry on the conversation in the comments section below. I would love to hear from you so do share your thoughts.

Thanks for reading, sharing and commenting on my what is a blog and why is blogging so popular post. Have an amazing week ahead and be safe.

Earn money from your blog & be your own boss

I have been blogging for almost 7 years now and it has been a learning journey for me. My inbox is usually filled up with emails from new bloggers asking blogging related questions. Which is why I have decided to go down the blog coach route. That way I can help more bloggers grow their blogs and they can start to earn a good income from their work. There is nothing like being your own boss. It is an amazing feeling. Especially when you love what you do, and you are good at it.

Blogging is the best career path for me. It is one of the best things I ever did, and I am forever grateful to the internet for giving me the power to work from anywhere and make money doing what I love.

Earn money from your blog & be your own boss

The blog coach service I offer is a side gig alongside my blog (which is my main job). Many wonder how bloggers are able to make enough money to blog full time with no other “out of the house” jobs. Well, I can open your eyes to how this can be done because I do it and I have done so for over 5 years now.

After giving birth to my twins, I didn’t go back to my customer service job. It was a soul-destroying job and I am glad I had a good enough blog to start making some money from. If not, I would have gone back to that job or something similar and I won’t feel as happy and as fulfilled as I feel now. That empty feeling, I used to get when going to work every day is no longer there. I feel in control and ready to take on the world every time I start working and I love it.

I enjoy offering my blog coaching service. There is a lot to take in when it comes to blogging and social media, and I feel this kind of service is what every new blogger needs. I would have jumped at the chance of an experienced blogger coaching me in my early days of blogging. That would have made my journey a lot easier. I won’t have made the many mistakes I made and my climb to the spot where I am at would have been quicker and stress-free.
