A First Blog About Blogging

A First Blog About Blogging

Much like the Seinfeld episode where Kramer comes up with the idea for a coffee book about coffee tables, I want my first blog to be about blogging rather than real estate. According to Wikipedia, a blog is an informational site on the Web where people post discreet entries in a reverse chronological order. The term blog is the shortened version of "weblog." A fellow named Jorn Barger came up with this to describe his process of "logging the web" as he surfed (the internet that is). The rising popularity of blogs in the late 90’s led to the creation of sites like Open Diary and LiveJournal. Remember that whole fiasco with Trent Lott in 2002? Bloggers broke that story. These days most people blog, rather they know it or not, through what is known as migroblogging (i.e. text messages, status updates, etc). To wrap things up, I will post everyone’s favorite thing: a list (from eZaroorat.com).

  • Justin Hall published the first blog in 1994

  • WordPress and Blogspot are the most popular blogging platforms (if you want to blog too)

  • There are over 1.5 billion blogs today

  • 60% of blogs are in English

  • Most bloggers have multiple blogs (I don’t, for now)

  • 20% (of bloggers) blog daily

  • Most blogs are read between 7am and 10am

  • Bloggers use social media to promote their blogs (surprise!)

  • Blogs can influence purchases

  • It takes a long time to profit from a blog

  • More than 80% of bloggers make less than $100 off of their blog

 

Thanks for reading!
