Everyone has faced this situation of quitting the job and looking for some other source of income. Self-confident people start their own business.

Here my question to you is when you have the Freedom of Speech a Fundamental Right, then why don’t you voice your thoughts?
Believe me, when I say, presenting your thoughts to the world will never cost you anything.

Well! Here comes the need for blogging.
Why blogging is important?
First of all, let me tell you what is a blog.A blog is an open space where you can put some or all your thoughts & opinions on any topic which needs deep thinking & discussion.
In short, a blog is a presentation of your thoughts and explanation of your opinions.
Now let’s get into defining these terms for better understanding.
A Weblog known as a Blog is the presentation or explanation of your ideas and thoughts in the form of a simple post (diary–like entries).
These posts appear in reverse chronological order (the latest post appearing on the top).
The ideas may relate to political, social, politico-legal, personal, professional matters. These may also involve narrow subjects or a broader range of subjects as a whole.
A blog may also contain some links to other websites know as a Blogroll.
A Blogger is a person who owns and writes a blog. A blogger writes an article of certain word count, shares information on news posts, or shares his opinion on the hottest topic of the time.
Bloggers also provide discussion areas in their posts, so that people with varied ideology can express their thoughts. Therefore, blogging is nothing but expressing your thoughts to the world.
In return, you learn the pros and cons of your thoughts on a particular topic by the number of people commenting/posting or replying to your entry.
