What is blogging?
Blogging is a personal web log, in which a person would journal about their day. The word “Blog” was derived from the words “web log” combined. Many entrepreneurs notice a great marketing potential in having a blog, and blogging began at that point of time. A blog can not only be used for marketing, but also, a home business or a personal opinionated platform.
Aren’t Blogs the same as Websites?
The difference between a blog and a website is that Blogs are updated frequently while websites are not. Even if it’s the simplest of blogs, an update is MUST on a daily basis for it to run smoothly. Blogs are also used for a more social approach to interact with other users and structure opinions to improve business and marketing strategies.

Disadvantages of blogging
There aren’t major downsides to blogging, but blogging takes a lot of dedication and time to take and maintain the structure and flow of a popular and quality assured blog to attract the viewers and keep it going. More updates means, more ideas to update about. You have to have a constant idea and plan of what to write about in your next blog in order to keep the flow maintained. Blogs take time in becoming popular or well known, as well as the wages that are possibly paid can depend upon the quality, the popularity and the effect over public social media over time, which can get a bit frustrating. So above all, patience and hard work are main key factors that are needed for a person to maintain a good blog and to keep the viewers satisfied. It is one of the important things to remember.
