by : Jwatsonl

Everywhere everyone around the world is talking about blogging, and most of all everybody around the world is actually blogging. However, there are the certain few people who do not really know what blogging is, and no they are not the just the old school folk, they are also not only the really young, they might just not be up to date like the rest of us, so this is for the people who ask the question "what is blogging?" every day of their lives.

To start with and to make it very simple, the true definition of blogging should be "a space for your creativity", but it actually is defined as being a user generated web site, where you can make entries in a journal form, using pictures, sound and videos, and post it for the world to see. These entries can be based on basically anything like travel, politics, current affairs, new food recipes, new clubs opening and funky hang outs and many other things, even how it felt when you recently cut your hair.

The whole point is that it is a personal space and you can do with it what you want. So if you decide to video yourself playing your X box and post it on your blog your can do that, as long as your post complies with the terms and conditions of the website you are using to post your blog entries. So if you are still asking yourself, what is blogging, let's look at it in more detail.

Blogging gives you freedom of speech, it gives you the right to speak about what you want, when you want and how you want. And the best thing about it is that every will read it and your thought about G. Bush or opinion of the terror bombs will be heard or read rather all over the world, which is great if you are planning to become a politician.

The point is that you can get your speech heard, and what your write down matters, because someone that could make a difference could stumble upon your entry and contact you about doing the right thing, or if your blog is about a new dish you made, you might be contact for rights for that dish and get paid royalties for your recipe.

Many people are using blogs as a way of advertising there business, it is free and it is wide spread, so why not use it for that, especially because millions of people use blogging websites all over the world every single day. You could even post a few lines of a song your wrote or a script your wrote and who knows, maybe your will get contacted by a big Hollywood producer.
