Blog, Blogging & Blogger

Blog Basics defines a blog as "a frequently updated online personal journal or diary. Blog is a short form for the word weblog and the two words are used interchangeably."

Additionally, "one who participates in the activities of maintaining a blog is known as a blogger and the activity of keeping a blog is known as blogging."

Below are some ways that the terms blog, blogging and blogger may be used.

"Blog (noun): a journal or diary that is on the internet."

"Blogger (noun): a person who keeps a blog."

"Blog (verb): to write a blog or add content to a blog."

"Blogging (verb): the action of writing a blog."

Additionally, Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, defines a blog as follows: "a blog is a website where entries are written in chronological order and commonly displayed in reverse chronological order."

Wikipedia continues:

"Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page."

There are so many blog makers and hosting templates on the internet.

One of them is Blogger owned by Google. Blogger is a free blog maker that you can use to create your own blog.

You can also use WordPress too to create and host your blog. It is free to use too. However, the advantage of using Blogger to using WordPress is that it is owned by Google and your blog is more likely to appear in Google's search results pages over blogs created using other blog makers.
