Blogging Insights- Talking to aliens ๐Ÿ‘ฝ # 64

TODAYโ€™S QUESTION 

How would you describe blogging to someone who has never heard of it before?

First of all, I wouldn’t have to turn any stones to find someone who hasn’t heard of Blogging. In my country, Blogging is not all that popular. Even the educated people aren’t that much into blogs and blogging.

Since everyone, including the semi-literate people, know of Facebook, I would explain Blogging to them as;

Blogging is a form of social media, like Facebook. We write what we think, feel, and want to express on our blogs in the form of a post. We sometimes add photos, images, or videos in these posts as well.

The purpose of a blog is to give us a platform to write whatever we want to write. It gives us the freedom of expressing our thoughts and ideas. We can tell stories, write poems, or bare our innermost emotions and fears in our blog. It is our place to write whatever we want.

We also have the option to publish our blog for others to see or we can keep it private so that only we can read it.

Basically, it’s like keeping a journal, which can share with other people or keep it private!

I hope a person who doesn’t know anything about a blog, gets a clear idea of what a blog is from this post.

  1. Hi Sadje and Tanya, A great description about blogging. This is often a topic with blogging friends, how the rest of the world sees blogging and often dismisses the creative aspects of blogging. Unlike other art forms, such as painting, pottery….

    1. Youโ€™re right Erica, people either donโ€™t understand blogging or equate it with those celebrity blogger who have a following of millions. Thanks a lot for your kind words.

  2. Piggybacking on my mom (Erica’s) response, this was a great description of blogging. I find blogging very therapeutic. I can be real, or stretch my creative wings. Either way, I’m expressing myself in a fun and safe environment ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Sara! I forgot one big difference between blog and social media, people here are kinder and much less judgmental. Thatโ€™s why we feel safe to express ourselves here. Thanks

  4. Great description and I might have to borrow it. My daughters accept my blogging with a little condescension. Not too much, but there’s a little bit. Neither of them read it, although I’ve offered to give them the info๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

  5. This reminds me of the assignment in every speech class where you had to teach someone a routine thing, like tying a tie or wrapping a present. … I always hated the assignment. Good description Sadje!
