A blog is an informational website that displays information in a reverse chronological manner. It means the recent post appears on the top of the web page. Here a writer can share their views on different topics. For example, a person can share about his life, his schedule of the day, or can promote his work/business even for small businesses.
You should write meaningful content which can attract your audience and can help you in growing your business.
Many people got themselves confused between blogs and websites.
- Blog needs updates regularly. You need to update content twice or thrice in a week.

Other Important Points
- You should mention a meta description for your article as this helps users in getting basic ideas about your article and it is very important to have a good meta description.
- You can use categories for grouping your content. If you are writing different categories then you should use different categories for different posts. For example: if you have written eight posts on a computer network and six posts on govt. Jobs then allow you to assign different categories for these two types of posts.
- Now you can assign Govt Job category for govt jobs related posts and Computer knowledge category for computer network posts. Now if a user selects computer Knowledge category then only eight posts that match with his interest will be shown.
