What is a blog? A blog is a combination of a personal webpage and a journal – in some cases. In other cases, it is a way to get customer feedback. Others use blogs as a personal journal. There really is no answer these days to what is a blog, simply because a blog can be many different things, with many different uses – depending on the blogger who is blogging.
If you are serious about making money from your online blogs then you need to allure a hoard of traffic to your website followed by starting off with a membership program so as to create residual income. You may also charge a monthly fee from your subscribers for receiving insider tips pertaining to your topic. This helps in creating a base of income every month and helps you make money with Follow me.
Another advantage is that blogs were as easy to use as a word processor application. This made it simple to use for people who did not know how to program. As the blog programs advanced, programmers started switching. Now there are many ways to adapt a blog and give it a unique feel.

Within minutes, I had created my blog, published it on the Web, and began posting and tweaking it. I inserted some HTML code to monitor my stats, and continued to work on making it a better blog. I also continued to work on my other websites, so that whenever I do climb out of Google’s sandbox, my site will get a good rating.
Last year Google introduced the “nofollow” attribute for links. Using this attribute on a link is supposed to inoculate the linking site from any negative association to the site being linked to. It’s to be used when you are not in control of the link being posted (as in blog comments) or when you don’t want your link to a site to be considered as you “vouching” for that site in the eyes of the search engines. I think the most accurate description of the “nofollow” attribute is that it’s a link condom.
A blog can serve as your “Home Base” where people go to find out about you, find helpful information, laugh, reflect, share, enjoy, discover ways to solve their problems….. whatever it is you want them to do. You set the goals and parameters. Stay on top of your newly found tool and be sure to consistently update your blog, stay in touch with your followers and the sky could be the limit.
