How to Make a Blog Behave Like an Online Diaries
The words blog and weblog come from two words. Weblog is a shortened form of weblog and is related to blogs, where users can log in and post comments. On the other hand, a blog is a written account, often hosted by a person on the Internet, on any topic of personal interest. These types of blogs are called weblogs and most people have a blog these days. A blog is a form of journal where members can share their thoughts and experiences, usually in reverse chronological order.
Blogging originated as an online diary some years ago, and has now spread all over the world. Originally, blogs were used for personal reasons, like sharing tips and experiences, while today there are many business blogs where bloggers share their ideas and products with potential customers. A blog can be an informal diary or it can also be a business-driven online diary. Most people who start blogging are attracted by the intimacy of it and want to express themselves through writing, so they use blogging as a way to do this.
Blogs in the past used the conventional formats of text and images such as Word or HTML. However, there are many new tools that enable you to create a unique online diary, such as visual basic for applications. Nowadays, blogging can be shared using the blogging tools that are part of Visual Basic for applications. If you already have an existing website that you would like to convert into a blog, then here is how you can make your blog behave the same way as an actual online diary.
To start, install a blogging platform. There are many free blogging platforms available, and Microsoft’s Internet explorer is the default tool for Windows websites. For those who want a more dynamic experience, then install blogger, an Open Source application from Linolin.
Once installed, login to blogger and click on the “Add Blogging Tool” icon. Search for your favourite blogging platform and then click the plus sign next to the word “blogging”. You will be taken to a new page where you can select the content that you would like to post. Some bloggers choose to focus on topics that interest them, while others want to write about whatever comes to their mind. In this case, make sure that your topic has enough scope to grow and attract the attention of the readers.
Once your write-up is ready, save it to your personal folder. From there, you can publish your writings using your favorite blogging website. As you can see, blogging has indeed evolved into a popular way of showcasing ones’ creativity and knowledge!
