Who is a blogger?

A blogger is a person who maintains an online diary, “blog”, regularly publishes new entries in it. Anyone can start a blog on the Internet and write on any topic. There are already 2 billion bloggers in the world, they write posts and create videos about themselves and their lifestyle, about travel, about beauty, about cars, about business, about politics. And, of course, a lot of blogs about how to blog. Any online diary will exist as long as people are interested in it. The main criterion for the success of a blog is the number of subscribers, people who regularly read or watch it.

Bloggers are divided not only by the topics they talk about, but also by the format. If you are planning to become a blogger, there are several platforms and formats that are most popular now:
