What is a blog?
A blog is a kind of a website where we share our knowledge, emotions and experiences through writing. Basically a blog can be easily maintained with popular CMS applications like WordPress, Blogger, Joomla, Tumblr, Quota etc. CMS stands for Content Management System. These web applications manage the contents that we publish in our blog. The best part is we don’t need to learn any coding to run the blog on CMS platform.
These CMS applications can be classified into two categories, Open source and closed source. The open source CMS web applications can be installed on any web hosting servers that we purchase to host our personal domain.
“A sub domain isn’t always related to a free blog”
There are a few popular websites like WordPress, Blogspot, Joomla, Quora who provide limited free space to an user in a sub domain to use it like a website/blog.
For example: readmore…is a main website but is a sub domain of blogrator. Both the main and sub domain work as a normal website that one can’t differentiate.
It is very easy to open a blog in Quora. It is not just a platform that provides free blogging option to us. It is one of the biggest question-answer problem-solving platforms and for sure it is better than yahoo answers. In Quora you can write an answer on a question in a similar way you write a blog in Blogger or WordPress platforms. That mean you can add links, images and videos in your answer that gives the platform a blogging like feeling where many people give their answers on a similar question. It not only gives the seekers a clear concept but also you get extra knowledge on the topic from answers given by others.
The reason why Quora is so popular because it helps bloggers/businesses/service providers to get good traffic to their blog/website. It also helps people to make some money for recommending products/services from here without a website (called affiliate marketing). Besides the answers get huge views that again helps the bloggers/businesses/service providers. Because all you need is just the relevant traffic to profit from whatever you are providing.
