Blogs range from being some of the most influential websites on the internet like the Huffington Post, which is an online newspaper that is written by a team of professional journalists, that is worth millions, and is influential in business and politics; to niche related websites like Blog Basics, which is focused exclusively on blogging related information. There are also other blogs that are much lower quality.
Personal blogs may only have ten or twelve followers. Others use blogs to play around with ideas, such as my wife’s blog on natural hair care, which only has a few articles. Although, it’s helpful to those looking to improve their natural hair regimen.
So what is a blog?
In simple terms it is a piece of software which allows you to write an online diary on a website. Your last entry, called a post, is displayed on the front page, home page, of the site.
