Internet Blog Basics

by Enrique de Argaez, webmaster

Blogs are simply "web logs", written by people that want to comment on special subjects of interest and wish to post news, information and points of view in the Internet, similar to a diary. Blogs have grown in popularity enormously since their first appearance in the Web in 2000. Blogs can be considered a disruptive technology that is here to stay...

Blogging is part of the process that started with the Internet and that is changing the global communications. Blogging is a way for individuals to publish material on the internet for everybody to read. You can do it right here, right now. The most famous blog sites and one of the first to appear is blogger. It offers a free, automated weblog publishing tool that sends updates to a site via FTP. Being a free service for creating blogs, Blogger is quite popular. Another free service for creating blogs is blogSome, it is sponsored by World Press. Sign-up in any of the blog service websites and start blogging for free.

Other paid blog creation and hosting services available are: Movable Type, and etc. All these services today are reliable and well tested

The tools for editing, organizing, and publishing weblogs are variously referred to as "content management systems" (CMS), "publishing platforms", "weblog software", and simply "blogware". The latest headlines, with hyperlinks and summaries, are frequently offered in weblogs in the RSS or Atom XML format, to be read with a feed reader.

The Growth and Success of the Blog in Internet

The totality of weblogs or blog-related websites is often called the blogosphere. When a large amount of activity, information and opinion erupts around a particular subject or controversy in the blogosphere, it is sometimes called a blogstorm or blog swarm.

The number of blogs has grown enormously and today add up to millions. Google has created a special search engine just for blogs. This search engine allows you to find blogs on your favorite subject. According to blog search and measurement firm Technorati, 23,000 new weblogs are created every day—or about one every three seconds. Each blog adds to an inescapable trend fueled by the Internet: the democratization of power and opinion. Blogs are just the latest tool that makes it harder for corporations and other institutions to control and dictate their message. A new media is springing up, and the smart people are adapting.

The New Blog Communities

The blog phenomenum has its own terms and culture. For getting familiar with these very original and unique terms, the following glossary is useful. to success is to follow the example of successfull people. Apply the same methods as the high money earners and you too will be successfull and start making money in the Internet.

Good luck, and don't forget to drop me a line about your blogging experiences.
