The answer to that question will be determined to a large degree on how you want to define blogging.

If the interaction on social networking sites like MySpace is accepted as true blogging, then there are millions of Internet users who qualify as social bloggers, and you can answer the question, “Yes, blogging is for everyone.” MySpace alone claims over seventy million users in the US.

But if we were to define blogging from a commercial standpoint, then blogging is clearly not for everyone, and it might not even be for you. Less than 8% of all those who access the Internet have commercial blogs.

While blogging certainly has an entrepreneurial appeal, and those individuals who have small offline business or online websites frequently use blogs as inexpensive promotional tools, but that is not an indication that all entrepreneurs will benefit from having blogs.

There are cases in which a private Internet forum will work better than a public blog is communication between a specific group of people is required.

In other cases, a website, once built, will demand less attention than a blog, and may be a better traffic generator. Many blog owners eventually find themselves short on the time needed to keep their blogs updated and promoted.

In spite of all the potential negatives, there are many, many reasons why blogging might be for you or for everyone. One of the most obvious is that building a blog is simplicity itself, whereas building a website can take weeks or even months and requires a real understanding of HTML coding.

All you need to do to start your own blog is to get a http://Blogger.com or WordPress account, choose your topic, and use the interface to begin your posting. You don’t need to know the first thing about coding, you don’t need to use a template; and you don’t need to find a host, nor understand how to upload your website pages to it.

Is blogging for you or for everyone?

It certainly is not for everyone, as in the instance of blogging commercially, which is reserved for those who use blogs to promote their businesses. But blogging could very well be for you, if you do have a business and want an inexpensive way to get it noticed.

Blogging is certainly inexpensive, as well as quick and easy to begin.
