Do you remember tha days when we had to queue for newspapers from Accra in our villages and towns? Those days the elites were the few priviledge ones who had the literate opportunity to read and had the means to afford buying newspapers like Daily Graphic, The Ghanaian Times,The Mirror and The Weekly Spectator. Those were the days where information was only available to the masses from the government. Isn't it interesting that Technology is changing everything?

Aside from being a window for the readers to see what's on the author's mind, a blog lets him elaborate on facts or scribble out whatever idea that pops out his head. A blog is a simplified term for “web blog”-a new generation medium for writing articles, essays, statements and the like.
It's usually composed of texts or sometimes pictures and multimedia topics. If you're tired of jotting down every single detail of your life's worth on paper, why not try the new fad of journalism which is blogging. Blogging literally means sharing a comment of life through the internet.
It is an up-to-date source. A sequence of events. A timeless exhibit of creativity and style. An outlet for one's self.
The popularity of blog comes in different areas. Anyone can write anything that comes out of his head. Whether a walk on a sunny day or a dip into California 's wild waters, it serves as a diary and is readily updated. What's good about blogging is that it is not bounded by editing and is cheap.
The commercial velocity of a blog depends on a writer's instinct to create a worthy article. Either formative or informative, rational or irrational, for as long as the readers can visualize what the author has posted your blog's a hit.
Technical specialties and skills, not necessary. Publishing freedom, an advantage. All that is needed is for you to have a witty mind, a desire to share ideas and part of your story, and a bit of knowledge to toggle into the internet. Grammatical errors are welcome. No editors and publishing companies to please. Journalism without rules or guidelines to follow and what's best is that readers could post a comment or be inspired to write one too.
Blogging wouldn't be difficult if you have the right recipes. Not just a simple-text article, a blog may be enhanced or converted into other types like an audio blog or a video blog. Nowadays, blogs are more sophisticated and advanced. Element of a blog starts from a good and captivating headline down to the author's personal profile. Included herewith are the blog post, permalink (combined term for “permanent link”), and the reader's comments.
A friend of mine is a blogger. She would entertain herself by posting blogs on her web page. She told me that blogging is an advantage for her to speak up to the world of the things that's keeping her shut. And I quote, “I am an internet junkie. I am not a big fan of journalism or any kind of writing.
But it all changed when the blogging fever entered internet society. I appreciated it more when I felt everything that's written are real and not just a compulsory decoy to deliver information. Right then, I became a part of a bigger picture.”
Trapped in a world of unwanted opinions, blogging is a benefit. But everything has its own consequences. Blogs are much harder to manage than that of the broadcast media. In politically sensitive issues, blogs can be considered as a political misfit. Results are triggered through suppression of bloggers and punishments were made. Another grave case is the issue of defamation and liability.
Nevertheless, blogging is still out there. So if you're the type who has the snap for writing, give blogging a shot. You never know how much it would contribute to the society and to your pockets.
