What is a blog ?
The word "blog" comes from weblog which in reality means an internet journal, or diary. Often defined as a personal web site, it is in fact a personal space where people can express themselves. The idea is to give the possibility to anyone who wants to, to establish an online presence (end users, companies, artists, politicians, organisations...)
Why create a blog?
A blog allows you to communicate and exchange ideas with other people on the internet. You can also deliver information about anything you want. That way, bloggers can share their passion, talk about news, things that are important to them or simply discuss areas of interest. A blog is a real communication tool.
How does it work?
Articles are published in antichronological format (the latest post is the first one you see on the home page). This enables readers to react on the given theme by posting their comments about the article. The process creates a special relationship between the author of the item and the readers.
Anyone can create a blog! Even if you do not have extensive computer knowledge. The platform www.over-blog.com has been devised in order to give blogging access to as many people as possible. The Help forum is also there to assist you in getting started and to inform you about the modifications possible on OverBlog.
