Gone are the days when people used to write their innermost feelings to a diary and keep it to themselves. In today’s time, Internet marketing is a very important tool for the success of your online business. While social media has taken the user’s interaction to a whole new world, blogging or creating an informational website has given the concept of pen/paper/diary a look that is obsolete. What is this fuss about blogging? Are there any real benefits to it? Is it yet another marketing gimmick?

To define blogging, we could say blogging is a contraction of words, it could be discussion or it could be an information, that is published on world wide web and shared and read by other users. What you want to blog about is entirely up to you. You could make a personal blog or a commercial one, which can help you earn a few bucks too. Some of the very popular websites that allow you to create your own free blog are BlogSpot.com, WordPress.com, Weebly.com etc. These all are free sites and do not charge you for a personal blog. However, there are some restrictions on these free blogs.
