What is Blog ? Fun, Money, Passion, Award, Dream

Blog : What exactly blog is ? Blog basically refers to an organized "web logs" i.e. storing any type of data on web any time. This log can be published on internet, to make it visible to desired users.

Lets try to eloborate Blog in a way acronyms does , it can be

Beautiful List of Organized Gesture,
Best Literature of Ordinary Guys,
Blast of Last Opera Group,
Breaking Lines with Oozing Guts,
Building Leagues of Outstanding Gallants,
Blossoming Life by Omitting Grudges.

We can easily map ourself to one of the catogeries from above acronyms. Now lets look at another perspective of blogs, why we should write bolgs. If we try to find answer to this question we would surely get diffrent answers from diffrent people. I ask this question in much simpler way to my friend who is a property broker, he said "i want to make a blog which would help me to attract customers intrested in property". when i asked this question from a techie guy he said "i want blog on technical domain". Then i asked same question to a guy who was searching job , he had not shown much intrest in it and said "if i get a job of blogger then only i would blog". Asked same question from one of my friend who is not working and dont want to be, she said "i want to blog about my dreams". Listening so many thought on one web log is actually the success mantra of blogging. Blog really help one to think about his/her desire which he/she can express without any constraints.

One can blog on anything and most importantly anytime. Like i am doing :).
Lets now check purpose of blogging, it can be for pure Fun , Money, Passion, Dream , Hobby etc....
What i can say here is :- To blog "blog" one should have to blog in a blog way. Its really intresting if thought in construtive way. Word blog can be used as noun or verb, blog word was coined by "Peter Merholz".
Blog is customizably extensible, like one can create collabrative blogs too. Blogs became so much popular nowdays as many communities offers Award to good blogs. Among the major blog awards are The Weblog Awards (Bloggies) , and the BOBs (Best of Blogs). Like usual film or television awarding committees, blog awards are started by a certain body, usually composed of blog enthusiasts.

There are many sites that offer free service and account creation for blogging.
