The Rise of the Blog

Blogging is almost as old as the internet itself, as people have always wanted to take advantage of a free space where they can post their views on any topic, from sports to movies to what they had for dinner last night. Many of the earliest websites were built around blogging communities with shared interests, and without these dedicated groups the internet as we know it might never have taken off.

As the internet has developed and a more diverse group of people have started using it, though, the shape of blogging has similarly changed. Around a decade ago, sites like Myspace really started to take off, where people could actively connect with others while sharing their views with the world, with a particularly vibrant music scene springing off from it. Social media has now moved away from blogging to now focus more on connecting people, but the blog itself hasn’t gone away. In fact, blogging is now more popular than ever, with an average of two new blogs being set up online every second. It seems that twitter just can’t cut it for people looking to vent their spleen or change the world with their unique ideas, as everyone with an internet connection now has the opportunity to have their say.

To cope with this demand, many hosting sites have sprung up to allow people to quickly and easily create a blog. WordPress and Blogspot are now the standard go-to sites for anyone wanting to start a blog, and for good reason. Unlike previous blogging platforms, both of these sites allow users a lot of options with customization, letting them show off their personality in the look of the page itself as well as the content. Since so many people use these sites, more and more themes are developed for it every day, and the sites themselves are constantly growing. But plenty of people get stuck on this point- since these themes cost money, lots of people are put off trying out something new. If you don’t work to make yourself stand out, though, it’s easy to get lost amongst the constantly growing network of blogs out there. If you’re only sticking to the very basics, there’s a very good chance that people will take one look at your page and immediately click away from it in favor of something more attractive to the eye.

Don’t despair, though, as help is at hand for whatever problems you might be facing. Maybe you want a new theme coded to give yourself a more professional image? Or perhaps you want advice on better search engine optimization so that more people will come across your posts?

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what
    I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I’d genuinely
    appreciate it.

    I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering issues with your site.
    It appears as though some of the written text within your content are
    running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening
    to them as well? This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Many thanks

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home
    a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

    I do not even know the way I ended up here, but I assumed this
    publish was once good. I don’t recognise who you might be however certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger when you aren’t already.

  • Posted at 8:26 am, October 10, 2018

    I have read so many articles or reviews about the blogger lovers but this piece
    of writing is really a fastidious piece of writing, keep it up.

  • Posted at 9:52 am, October 10, 2018

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult
    to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this. Additionally, the
    blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!
