How to Start A Blog | Website

A lot of peoples are still confused about how to start a blog , some asked me how to start writing a blog? some asked me about creating a website, Guess what, everyone can start a website or blog. Starting a blog or website is a not a hard job and you can achieve it by following some simple steps. Before we get started into making a website or blog, let us review the pros and cons of both. 

what is blog?

A blog or web log is a personal journal published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete entries "posts" typically displayed in reverse chronological order so the most recent post appears first. Blogs are usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often are themed on a single subject.
A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.Your blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules.
In simple terms, a blog is a website, where you write stuff on an ongoing basis. New stuff shows up at the top, so your visitors can read what's new. Then they comment on it or link to it or email you. Or not

what is a website?

A website, also written simply as site, is a set of related web pages containing content (media), including text, video, music, audio, images, etc. The information is generated by multiple sources and is carefully organized in the form of files and web pages, which, when grouped together to form a single entity, become a website. In this sense, a website represents a centrally managed group of web pages, containing text, images and all types of multimedia files presented to the attention of the Internet users in an aesthetic and easily accessible way.


With the confusion between the functions of a blog and web site persisting, it has proved more difficult for many online marketers and entrepreneurs to use the two very different online tools properly in their marketing plans. In short,
A company has a website. That website talks to customers.
A person has a blog. That blog talks to people.
It’s a matter of attitude, not of technology.
Yes, this is a gross oversimplification. But it gets right to the heart of the matter.
so let us review the pros and cons of a blog and website.


1) Blogging is Really Easy
If you can write an email, you can maintain a blog. It's really that easy. For setting up a web site you must have some knowledge of HTML and some other editing skills.


2) Blogs Can be Set Up Quickly
You can literally have a blog from one of the many free blogging services up and running in about 10 minutes.
Where as setting up a professional website is time consuming and not so easy.


3) Blogs are Search Engine Friendly
For the most part, blogs are pretty search engine friendly. What this means is that you won't have to spend a lot of time worrying about SEO (Search Engine Optimization),  Where as to make a website search engine friendly it takes a lot of work, even you may have to appoint SEO executive for your site.


4) Blogs are Extremely Organized
One of the toughest thing about maintaining a traditional website is keeping pages organized. Blogs automatically organize your content by date, category, tags, and even include a built in search.While it takes a lot of effort to organize a smooth functioning website.


5) A Blog is a Magnet for Readers
If you're writing about something you are passionate about, there are bound to be others who are also passionate about that topic too. Hopefully, your blog will attract those readers / visitors, and if you write regularly, those readers will keep coming back for more. in case of websites chances of frequent visits are very low.


6) A Blog is an Instant Online Community
Blogs have built in commenting systems, which allow your readers to comment and have discussions about various topics. In case of websites one have to contact the admin through contact us page or support tickets.


7) Built in RSS (Really Simple Syndication)
RSS or Really Simple Syndication, basically syndicates your most recent content, and distributes it to several blog search engines. Your readers can also "Subscribe" to your "RSS Feed", had have your latest content automatically delivered to their inbox. Normally websites don't share their content via RSS.


Our recommendation "start with a blog and if later u find the need of a full fledged website than go for it."
