A Review of an IT Blog
An IT blog is an informative, personal or web log posted on the Internet consisting of casual, sometimes more formal blog-style text posts. Blogs are written by people who work with information technology or have knowledge in this field. Most IT blogs are informal and deal with current news, advice, knowledge sharing or anything else anyone interested in IT and information technology might find interesting. Blogs are designed to be brief and to the point; they are meant to be read at leisure. Unlike traditional websites, blogs are usually not search engine optimized (SEO) and are not dependent on keyword phrases or back links to attract visitors. They can generate traffic organically based on their popularity and relevance.
There are several different types of blog: personal blogs are written by an individual (or several individuals), business blogs are created for a company or organization, professional blogs are those written for a particular industry or sub-sector or educational blogs are those targeted at a particular topic and generally suited for educating those learning center readers interested in a particular topic. Blogs are easy to set up and maintain since there is very little technical knowledge required. Most hosting providers offer free accounts for bloggers, though some dedicated hosting companies may charge monthly fees. Depending on your needs and the subject of your IT blog, you may opt for free hosting or a paid account. Blogs generally follow the RSS (Really Simple Syndication) format, which allows them to be indexed by search engines and re-indexed periodically, thus allowing them to rank higher on search engine results.
A good IT blog offers the best form of user-friendly communication. It should offer up-to-date information on every aspect of IT, ranging from general concerns to specific applications or hardware. Information on a particular topic should be presented in a clear and concise manner. Blogging topics should not be too technical for laymen, and at the same time, they should not be so advanced that they turn off people. In essence, the site should be a mix between a news portal and a technical blog.
