What Is A Blog?

What is this magical, mystical thing called a blog?

I’m sure we’ve all heard of it, read of it, talked of it…but what is a blog?

Definition of a blog

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a blog as: “a website that contains an online personal journal with reflections and comments”.  I would like to add that it also could contain pictures or videos.  But a blog can be so many different things.

Simply put, a blog is you writing something regularly about your chosen subject!  Except the writing is actually typing and the something is posted on the internet for everyone to read, if you so choose.  That’s it, a blog is sharing.  Ever typed a letter on a computer or filled out a form electronically?  Blogging is taking that a step further and posting quality articles about your passion ;and within your niche.

The question becomes, what do you want to do with your blog?  What is the purpose?

  • write a diary?
  • share family experiences?
  • maybe start an online business?

Based on your decision above, your blog will be for personal or business reasons, possibly a combination of both,,,which is what the Baby Boomers Learn to Blog website is about.

Check out this free website because of all that it offers.  Join me as I learn about blogging my experiences and where you, too, can learn and build your site.  Blogging is something that I enjoy and hope to share with others.

A blog is your opportunity to record your opinions, share your experiences, or provide needed information to people.  That’s what a blog is and all of us Baby Boomers can participate.  I think that’s rather exciting.

Having said all this, I thought I would do a bit of brain storming about broad blog topics and share it with you so you can envision not only what a blog is but also what your’s might be.


Could you write about:

  • your pet
  • travel
  • fashion or design
  • the arts
  • books
  • celebrities
  • coupons
  • being a parent (or grandparent)
  • hobbies

Do any of these catch your interest?

Could you see yourself blogging about these or anything else that you are interested in?

What I am encouraging you to do is to find your niche, finding that unique something that you can write (blog) about.  I will discuss that further in my next post when we further explore deciding on your niche.

For now, dream a little, take some notes, leave me a comment and lets talk further.

Has this helped you discover what a blog is?

…and what you maybe could create?  I hope so.  Blogs are an opportunity not only to create but also to leave something for posterity…for your kids and grandchildren.  It is also your opportunity to share your story with other Baby Boomers.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and, as always, I invite you to leave comments below.  I will respond to each one of them.
