Personal website & Blogs
A personal website is a site created by an individual to contain about him/herself. It basically contains things that are personal. It doesn’t have to be about you, and it doesn’t have to contain personal information but it does need to be personal rather than on behalf of a company or organization. Personal web pages are often used solely for informative or entertainment purposes.
A personal website usually contain the content that tells your readers about your thoughts, ideas, interests, hobbies, family, friends, feelings, or something you feel strongly about. Online diaries, self-written books, poems, family, pets, or a page about your favorite topic such as a TV show, a sport, or a hobby are examples of things that could go on your personal website.
By making your own site you can present yourself to the world. Your virtual online portrait will be there for the entire world to see 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your personal website can be your online CV or portfolio too.
Your web site could also take the form of a family album, a diary of your daily life, which you could easily share with friends and relatives.
What is a Blog (weblog)?
A blog is basically website in which items are posted or you write stuff on a regular basis and is available on the web. The activity of updating a blog is “blogging” and someone who keeps a blog is a “blogger.”‘ In another word, your blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules.
When it comes to starting a blog, your biggest decision will be whether you want to host the blog yourself, or use a free blogging service that is hosted for you.
When you start a blog with a free blogging service, you don’t get your own domain. You get something like mynewblog.blogspot.com (where there are a million other blogs at blogspot.com) and you don’t actually own the blog. You can also host your own blog using WordPress free Blog software.
