How many of us know that the word ‘blog’ is a truncation of the word ‘weblog’? On reading the before sentence, I am completely sure that a strange question will arise in your mind. Is the blogging trend outdated now? I understand your thoughts clearly. There are a considerable amount of people who read blogs and make the most of it. Imagine if you want to search for a particular information, I am sure that you won’t read the entire blog post from top to bottom. However, I am 100 percent confident that you will skim through the blog post and fetch the information which you need the most.
On the other hand, I wouldn’t say that blogging has become outdated or old fashioned. Blogging just got evolved especially during the Digital Age that we are living in. For instance, let me share with you some information about WordPress. WordPress is a Content Management Platform developed in 2003 which is almost 17 years ago. Huge number of websites, including the one which you are currently reading have been developed using WordPress Themes and Plugins. In 2016, WordPress announced the .blog domain. As described in Wikipedia, WordPress is used by more than 60 million websites as of April 2019. I hope these facts leave you with the conclusion that blogging will continue to evolve in the years to come.
