One of the most happening thing on Internet today is of course blogging, you will find kids, house wives and even film stars with their own blogs.
One common question that everybody asks is what's the difference between a blog and a website ?

...A blog (or a "Web log") is nothing but a Web site, usually maintained by an individual, focused on a single theme or a bunch of categories, descriptions of events or reviews of gadgets, products or even other blogs and websites. Posts/articles are usually displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb which means to maintain or add content to a blog.

If you too want to enter the Internet's huge Blogosphere, then you can easily start it without spending a single penny, by registering yourself for free at Blogger.Com.
For those of you who do not know about Blogger - it's a website which provides blogging platform and has been bought by Google a few years back. So if you have a Google account {a gmail account}, then you can use the same log in ID and password to enter in to Blogger.

So once you enter (and select a Display name), you will be asked to create the blog. Select any name (eg. ABCD), and you will get a blog like this:
www.ABCD.blogspot.com
And moreover, just like email ID's there's no limit to the number of blogs you can make, provided the blog names are available.
This is exactly like choosing an email ID, you cannot select any blog name, which is already existing. But do not worry, you can change this [Blog Name] whenever you want, if the new name has not been already taken (that means you can shift from ABCD to DEFG.blogspot.com, provided DEFG has not been taken already).

After selecting the name, you have to select the template for the blog, the default templates given by Blogger are really boring, so do not waste time there, select anyone, as you can change and add a much better template afterwards !

Now you will be asked to post your first article, it's your wish to whether do it now or you may do it after taking a small coffee break, you can also save an incomplete post as a draft if you want to publish it later.

And once you are accustomed to Blogger, then read these tricks to make your blogging experience better

I started a new Wordpress blog about a month ago, I dont use Blogger anymore, just making the time to be consistent with entries is the challenging part.

Why waste time with Blogger? If you want to start out right at least use wordpress. Don't most blogger blogs end up getting transfered to wordpress or just abandonded? All the nice plugins are for wordpress blogs.

site such as blogger and wordpress.com should be used just to get yourself familiar with blogging or for getting backlinks to your web sites. As Rammesh has found out they can and will get shoutdown if the admins feel you are doing something against their TOS.
You cannot rely on these services if you want to create a long lasting business, beside they dont look professional, if you are serious you will get your own hosting they are not that expensive ($12 per year if you want dirt cheap!) and you will be free to create almost any type of blog yu want.

I have both a word press blog and one with Blogger and find both are useful to get your first experience in blogging,but in all cases Blogging is or can be time consuming because you do need to up date blogs on a regular basis to maintain any sort of outside interest in your blog more so if you want to use it to make any money.
Would love to hear from anyone with a good source of content for blogs and has anyone used "Instant Blog Subscribers much at all and what sort if any response have you had.

InstantBlogSubscribers (IBS) is a community of business people blogging about things of interest, mostly internet marketing topics. I’ve watched IBS’s somewhat organic growth up until now and how I would say it differs from your typical blogging platform, is that besides the typical blog posts a lot of individuals are using it to blatantly promote their referral links in the form of short messages and videos. What makes IBS popular, is that you immediately receive an audience. There are other features too, such as an area where you can promote your own products and services and receive 100% profit...
