What is a blog?
A blog (originally known as weblog or web log) is a continuous series of messages / posts / articles that you make about whatever you want to write about, appearing in reverse chronological order with the most recent post appearing first (similar in format to a daily journal). Many people write a blog about their life where they can openly talk about their interest or what their thoughts are, etc.
Blogs typically include features such as comments and links to increase user interactivity.

Blogs are also considered an essential component of any online business. Creating a monetized blog site is one of the best ways to make money online.
