Understand Blogging - What Are Types of Blogs?

There would be hardly anybody these days who hasn't heard about a blog. In the last couple of years blogs have taken world at their stride. In simple words a blog is a short form of "weblog" that is nothing but a kind of website usually owned and maintained by an individual to share information with the outside world. Not just textual commentary but nowadays blogs can be in the form of graphics, pictures, videos and even music files.

In every blog, individuals who maintained it generally write on a regular basis. Literally, there are endless opportunities available when it comes to a blog, owner can write on any specific topic, other people can put their comments, they can also discuss over the subject mutually and finally the blog owner can moderate their comments. As the internet is revolutionizing itself very fast so it is really hard to define it precisely. The other similar term is micro-blogging that consists of relatively shorter posts and enhanced flexibility. Individuals can form groups and can interact with each other in a more advanced manner.

No matter, what type of blogs but in every blog an individual could share any series of event, critical information; useful information like news, videos, music etc. These are much faster and convenient ways to discuss and share things over any media. That's why blogs are much harder to control than broadcast or even print media. An ideal blog contains pictures, transcript, and links to other blogs.
