Creating a Blog was a passion for me quite a long. Getting ideas from friends regarding blogging started my journey through BlogSpot & WordPress.com. These are very user friendly for the newbie. From the group of members of FaceBook I got some ideas. There in, friends helped me to get through their own blogs. I am thankful to them. Out of them special thanks to John Gabriel, Atish Ranjan, Siddesh Patil, Rohit Kothari, Deepak Singh, Hursh Gupta & Kulwant Nagi and obviously Bloggers Lounge group.
Their encouragement and enthusiasm accelerated my ideas of launching own blog with chooseable domain name. My domain “iTechCode.com” purchased from `Big Rock` through on line. It `s a first on line purchasing :).
Like me if you want to launch your own Blog then you must be aware of “What is Blog?”
Different person’s feelings, emotions, daily struggle for existence can be stored as a diary where you can easily express your ideas as well as thoughts, knowledge to height your brain storming session. You can easily put different pictures to have the Blogs more attractive.
Blog is a specialized website, needs frequently updating, it’s written by one person or more. These are written on various topics depending on what is your passion or anything you can think of ranging from Technology, sports, photographs, food to hobbies or spiritual views and politics. Being an I.T student I chose my topic as ` Technology`.
