The last post looked at Why Can’t I Create a Blog?. As for this post, what can I do with a blog? Well, that’s a question many people new to blogging ask and the short answer is: “Write something in it!”
When you look long and hard at the phenomenon that is blogging, you’ll see many hundreds of thousands of blogs out there that are as diverse in nature as there are ideas in people’s heads. A blog is basically a vehicle for writing about what you’re interested in, or noting down what you do every day, like a sort of online diary or journal. You can share pictures with family and friends and it can be your very own special piece of online space.
Some people use their blogs to write about their hobbies and interests and others take that one step further and create an online manual describing that hobby in detail, helping other people to understand it better and show them how it works and what you can do with it.
Still others take it another step further and turn their hobby into a way of making some money online by attracting advertisers that sell items related to that hobby, or even sell items they created themselves as a cottage industry. There are also online merchants who run successful real world businesses that are given a boost by a commercial blog that further advertises their own wares.
So you can see, a blog can be a lot of things to a lot of people, so next time you are wondering “What can I do with a blog?” now you know!
