For the rest of you, the term blog was coined in the late ’90s and was derived from the term “web log”, which was the original term for an on-line diary. No doubt, the modern day blog has certainly evolved from its roots as personal diary. Today bloggers post about everything from celebrity mishaps to political commentary.
As intriguing as blogging has become, there are always risks! Keep in mind that whatever you post has the potential to exist in cyberspace indefinitely, which means that friends, family, and prospective employers may all come across your posts at some point. So if you plan on blogging, make sure to be comfortable with what you are going to put out there!
