Why Blog?


A blog (a blend of the term web log) is a type of website or part of a website. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add a content to a blog.-wikipedia

Blogging became a popular hobby/pastime for a lot of people nowadays. With different genres, types and origins. Everyone can be a blogger. With different platforms readily available to choose from, most of them  for free, one can put up a blog in just a couple of minutes.

Blogs can be very informative in many ways. Bloggers have become influential for a lot of people for their reviews, commentaries and opinions regarding something or anything. And most of these bloggers are not affiliated/associated with any companies/agencies so it is a popular belief that blogs/bloggers do not sensationalize the things that they write about just for the sake of advertising.

Many bloggers consider their blogs as their personal online diaries, journals or folios. Some of them use it as their online receipts to track their purchases, travels and many other things that has to do with their spending habits. Many of them use it mainly for reviewing purposes and others for sharing skills through tutorials.

I, for myself, put up my blog to share my opinions as well as to hear/read others opinions too. This blog is not mainly focused to beauty related things only (but do expect more of it) but rather things that caught up my fancy or things that I personally wanna share to others OR things that randomly popped on my head. And in addition, I can easily be updated with my favorite blogs. Be it a beauty/personal/review/techie/guy/or-whatever-description-you-can-think-of blog.

Well, that's just me. Spontaneous, unpredictable, random.

Now, bloggers, what are your reasons for blogging? And if you're a reader, how do you find blogs nowadays? Are they informative? Do they influence you? And if you don't have a blog yet, do you consider having one for yourself? Share your thoughts! Let's hear each other.

I'll be pleased to have your comments! Stay pretty!:)
