Blogs are just for vain people who just want to talk about themselves, right? While some people may believe that is all a blog is, that is far from the truth. Blogs have changed quite a bit from their web diary days.

What is the purpose of a blog?

The purpose of a blog is quite simply... anything. Yes, it seems like a non-answer, yet each day people are finding new ways to use WordPress blogs. People find a myriad of uses for other blog formats as well, but WordPress is probably the most versatile.

Can you tell me some purposes of a blog?

Some people write about their lives. Others use blogs for opinion pieces, celebrity news or news in general. Dog breeders use blogs for updates about their kennel and information about the breed they are raising. Cat Fanciers talk about all the different types of cats. Exercise buffs review exercise programs. The list goes on and on.

But what about businesses? Can they use blogs?

Online stores discuss new products and review products they are currently sell. News shows have blogs by newscasters who give their points of view and give general news that may not make the 5 o'clock news show. Manufacturers discuss potential products and products that already on the market. Food manufacturers have blogs with recipes.

Why are so many people using blogs?

Blog programs are surprisingly easy to use. They often work just a little different than your favorite word processor. Posts, which is what an entry is called, just require a bit of time typing, there is no programming required. The days of having to learn HTML to say something online are gone with a blog.

What do you mean blog programs? Are there different ones?

Oh yes, there are quite a few different blog programs. Some people choose to use an online blog program or service. WordPress.com, Blogspot and Blogger are ones that are commonly used online. These are completely free to use, but the blog program does own your blog so if they disagree with your point of view they can ban you or your blog.

Is there an alternative?

There are ones you can host on your own website. This means you get a domain name and you install the blog program on the domain name. WordPress is actually the most common used because it is such a versatile program. While it does require a bit of work to load WordPress (or other blog program) it does not require programming knowledge. However, many people hire someone to install it and after that it just requires being able to type.

Should I have a blog?

If you can type, you can run a blog. Just share your thoughts and opinions. Your blog can be as unique as you are, and be about any subject you enjoy.
