What is a blog

 

Most people really want to start a blog but don’t know what a blog is while many are still having a lot doubts weather they have the correct definition of a blog. Let’s take a look at this definition:

A blog is a website that consists of entries called posts that appear in a chronological order with the most recent entry appearing first, similar in format to a daily journal. This what I believed a blog is but if you want to know more of a blog, use this link.

Now that we have looked at what a blog is,the next thing is how do I start a blog but before then let me answer the earlier asked questions.

  1. I am a newbie and I don’t know anything regarding internet but I want to start a blog, how do I go about it? To answer this,let me start by telling you that when I started blogging, I didn’t know anything regarding the internet. It was as I keep making efforts and reading  other people’s blog that I started having knowledge of the internet. The answer is that you don’t have to be an internet guru for you to start a blog. All you need is make efforts and you can definitely start your blog.
  2. I don’t know how to code but I want to start blogging, how do I start my blog? You must not know how to code for you to start a blog. There are many platform you can use which include:
  • WordPress.org
  • Wix
  • WordPress.com
  • Blogger
  • Tumblr
  • Medium
  • Squarespace

  • Ghost
  • Weebly

I will still make a post on which one you should use and why you should use it.

3.I don’t have a desktop or a laptop system but I want to start a blog,how do I start blogging? To answer this, let me start by telling you that this most if not all of my blogging activities are been done using my smartphone. The funny thing is not only that I can be blogging anywhere and someone will think am just chatting ,but the fact that I can access my site anytime without looking for a computer. So you can start blogging with just your smartphone .

4.I don’t have money to buy domain name and host but I want to start a blog, how do I  start? Starting a blog is not all about having the money to start it because there are many free online tools you can use to start your blog and definitely make money.
