brief history
Brief History
  • The modern blog evolved from the online diary, where people would keep a running account of their personal lives
  • Usage spread during 1999 and the years following, being further popularized by the near-simultaneous arrival of the first hosted blog tools such as ‘Open Diary’ and ‘LiveJournal’
  • By 2001, blogging was enough of a phenomenon that how-to manuals began to appear, primarily focusing on technique.
  • In 2004, the role of blogs became increasingly mainstream, news services and politicians began using them as tools for outreach and opinion forming. Even those not actively campaigning blogged to bond with constituents.
  • Microblogging is the practice of posting small pieces of digital content the Internet and this became popular in the last 4 years. Social networks such as Twitter, Tumblr and WeiBo have been key in popularising it.

advantages disadvantages
Advantages/disadvantages
  • You can write down thoughts
  • They are quick and easy set up and update
  • You can get comments from readers which can be feedback or lead to a wider discussion on the topic
  • There are millions of blogs worldwide and therefore no shortage of choice if you are looking to read one.

However

  • The posts are public and therefore anybody could read it. This could cause offence or minors could be exposed to indecent content.
  • Posts can be biased or inaccurate and therefore should not be taken as complete fact unless evidence is provided
  • Not all feedback will be positive/constructive. As with all internet comments, some can be rude.
  • Some blogs will just not be interesting/not updated, therefore some blogs can be dull and a waste of time.
