Everyone in the world is special and unique so let others know yourself

Blogging in India is very new. Though many people use internet, its usage is limited to browsing the information, email communication and for online business transactions mainly. Yet Internet has not become a place to express their views, share their knowledge and experience to others due to the infrastructure limitations and the operating costs.

Until recently, there was not much use of Internet in India for communication and browsing except for online transactions. Internet appeared in some reputed technical institutions and research centers in the beginning. Through software industries Internet usage immediately increased in India. Due to browsing centers, about 80% of the current youth generation in India has email addresses. Irrespective of the educational background technical or non technical, everyone has an email address like the phone or mobile number.

Also, blogging requires the writing skills and interest to share the own views and experience to others. It requires focusing on a particular subject, issues and events. Blog needs to be constantly updated with new contents over time. It needs to be original though, not necessarily an invention. It is a mean for the blogger to share his experience and knowledge that he has acquired. Everyone in the world is special and he or she would have a unique experience. He needs to pass it to others by some means. Blogging is one of the faster and effective methods to do that. It is similar to writing small stories and sayings in the form of books in past. All principles and writing ethics remain same, except that the media of sharing is different. This electronic media presents the writings to any one, in any corner of the world when he searches for the particular knowledge on the internet, thanks to the intelligent search engines.

With the advent in online advertisement blogging lures many writers to earn money. Many bloggers start with the intention of earning money. Few will succeed by enriching their site with valuable content. But many bloggers will not understand how to focus on a particular subject and area so that the readers get benefit. These bloggers get discouraged soon and will end up writing. Unless the blogger thinks from the reader’s benefit point of view their blog will not become popular.

India will produce more bloggers in future due to the population and the diversity it has. Every developing nation needs it for spreading the good thoughts and to bring reforms. There is a positive growth in the number of good bloggers these days from India. But one thing is true that because of internet entire world is one village and entire writer group is one entity called as 'bloggers group'. There is no distinction of state, nation and continent to share the knowledge and experience in spite of blogs in various languages.

This is a revolution in journalism where instead of journalist writing in news papers and magazines to bring awareness in the public, the bloggers write in blogs and share their views.

helo sir, Nice article. I agree to most of your statements except the first one "Blogging in India is very new". If we browse the profile of the bloggers based on the location in Blogger, we will get to see the profiles of "2,54,000" Indian bloggers as of today. Also there are greater number of Indian bloggers hosting on other blog service providers like wordpress. So, I dont think it is an small number. Blogging is treated as one of the best innovations of the decade. I think in a country like India blogging has a very important role to play. It gives an opportunity & platform for everybody to express floating thoughts. Lets, hope that this revolution continues forever.
