Many people are still confused when you ask this question : “What is a blog ?”. But it’s not very complicated. The simple definition of a blog is : a type of website that is usually organized chronologically with the most recent posts at the top of the page, and the older posts at the bottom of the page, and it’s usually, but not always, written and updated by one person, and is written on a particular topic.
However, there are a few things that the internet users should know about blogs, especially if only used as a source of information, and as a reader.
The first thing that people need to know about blogs, is that, what you see is not all ! What I mean is that there are way more information on the blogs you are visiting. There’s just a limited amount of comments visible on one page. So, very often, people are taking a look at a blog, and think that it is ridiculously short, and that the amount of information was not worth to take a look a it. The truth is that, when you click on archives, you have access to the entire blog, and can go back up to where it started. Some of the pages of the blogs might seem light in term of information, but some comments are way more explanatory than others. It can take a little bit of time to read a blog, but it can be very interesting.
Blogs are often used as a source of income (albeit typically an alternate and low-level source, unless you’re really luck or really really good at it). Our personal focus is on various financial tools, from the ones that are more geared towards entertainment and amusement (namely, how to play slots online and other such fun stuff) to more considered ways to save and make money (like auto loan refinance, debt consolidation, and more).
The other thing that is important to know about blogs is that some of them can be a monologue, where only one person is writing information about a specific subject, or with very little participation from other people. However, most of them are a conversation, which makes them quite often very interesting. The point of view of many people can enhance the subject on one hand, but on the other hand it gives to blog a “non-official” character due to the fact that most of the people participating to a blog are not professional about the subject, and are very often giving a point of view, and nothing else.
You can learn a lot from blogs but you can also spend a lot of hours wasted…
