So one of my New Year's Resolutions is to write a blog on the Timeless Elements Med Spa website on at least a monthly basis for 2018. In getting started on this task, I thought it would be good for me to learn about blogs and blogging. I went to Google.com and typed in words like "blog", "blogger", "how to be a successful blogger" and of course there were plenty of hits. Here are a few of the interesting facts that I learned.
First the history of blogging. The term "weblog" was started in 1994 and changed to "blog" in 1997. Currently, there are hundreds of millions of blogs and this is just in 25 years. That doesn't seem very long to me, I remember 1994 well and at my age it seems like "yesterday"!
Secondly, the definition of "blog" is a personalized webpage on which an individual records opinions, links to other sites, etc. on a regular basis. In the beginning a blog was considered an online journal/diary that is available on the internet. Today, the definition of "blog" is more than just a journal, it is a place for sharing knowledge and views for connecting with other like-minded people.
One of the most important facts that I learned about bloggers/blogging is that to be successful you need a passion for your topic, so going forward I'm hoping to share my knowledge about my practice at Timeless Elements Med Spa. I'm inspired by our clients everyday and I hope that I can inspire others with this blog!
