With the recent rise in advanced social networking websites like MySpace, FaceBook, and Xanga, where the young
and would-be cool like to spend their time, much in the way they congregate at their local malls, the personal
blog as a means of communicating has taken on new significance.

But the blog is nothing new, and is certainly not the creation of the social networking site. Blogging,
in
fact, has been going on for well over a decade, and was originally called journaling.

The term “weblog’ was actually coined in 1994, and was transformed to blog in 1999 by Peter Merholz, when the
early blogging hosts appeared. http://Blogger.com, which now belongs to Google, showed up at about that time.
In the early days of blogging, most bloggers limited themselves to recording the details of their daily
lives.
But blogging has now become an important tool for politicians, entrepreneurs, charities, and almost anyone who
needs an inexpensive way to reach a big audience.

Blogging is ideal for those who have a lot to say and not much time in which to say it. Free blogging
platforms like Blogger and Wordpress enable the busy blogger to post even while he or she holding a
conversation or watching television.

Blogs let anyone communicate over the Internet without knowing a thing about .html or any other sort of code.
If you can type with your PC’s keyboard, you can blog.

Blogging is a way to establish an instant and ongoing dialog with others who share your interest in a topic
and comment on your posts. Read the blog devoted to political candidates during a campaign, and see how
quickly they grow. It’s almost impossible to keep up with the traffic which a popular blog can generate
in a
single day.

While blogs on politics or religion, or those whose authors try to serve as investigative reporters are
often controversial, the vast majority of blogging is devoted to socializing.

And that is why Myspace and other social networking sites have taken the Internet world by storm. In a world
where their busy lives don’t afford people the time and energy to get out and about as much as they’d like,
social blogging is a pleasant, if not perfect, substitute.

Blogging is simply the 21st century version of the written correspondence which, a hundred years ago, took
months to reach its audience and months more to provide an answer, and friendships which took months to build
can now happen in hours!
