What is Blogging?

What is Blogging? | The Joy of Blogging | Scoop.it

Seems like the simple word blog became so complicated to some of the minds of todays business owners....

I like medium size. Somehow some blogs when it gets too popular, they stop answering their comments and to me that is not cool. So no matter where you at in your ladder, you should not stop engaging or answering your comments.

Hi Angela,
You have done a fantastic job of explaining what blogging is and I love the graphics you use in this post. My favorite is the WordPress, Genesis, Studio Press one – very cute.

Thanks so much for the mention Angela! I’m so pleased to be on your list.

Brenda Lee's curator insight, August 23, 2014 6:59 PM

#Genesis themes are simply the best way to go for #WordPress themes imo.
