Blogging, as the name implies; it is one of the most popular ways of communicating and spreading information or news. It serves as a way of expressing oneself and a fantastic way to share information to others.
Since we know what blogging is all about, you may be wondering about the meaning of a blog, well a blog is a discussion or an informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary style text entries or posts.
With time, the blogging industry is changing its trend and people are taking blogging as a full-time profession and job examples of such individuals are Harsh Agrawal, Laila Ijeoma.
There are many ways you can be a blogger; you can start by creating your blog or you can join some blogging company and join their team of bloggers or become a freelance blogger.
Blogging makes you become a better person and a better writer, however, it takes time before it starts to make money for you, so don’t just jump into blogging thinking it is a money-making business. The initial period is full of hard work, dedication, time consuming and sometimes frustration. So, I will highly advise that you should not leave your day job before making money from your blog.
Many people are confused over what constitutes a blog and a website. Part of the problem is that many businesses use both, integrating them into a single web presence.
But there are two features of a blog that set it apart from a website.
Blogs are updated frequently but websites might occasionally have new information, but for the most part, the offer static, rarely changing information
Blogs allow readers engagement whereby readers can comment and have a discussion with the blogger and others who read the blog
Below are my pros and cons of blogging, you can easily connect yourself to these points.

Disadvantages of blogging
It requires a great deal of time

You need ideas to write about: to keep your blog updated, you need to have ideas what to write about. The good news is that you don’t need to write it all, you can hire a guest writer or a freelance writer
