A blogger is a person who publishes content (i.e., who blogs) in a blog site. Blogs appeared on the Internet before the year 2000, with most of them being advanced Internet users. However, with the advent of more user-friendly blogging services like Blogger, LiveJournal, WordPress, people from all walks of life started to blog. With the advent of easy-to-use revenue sharing programs like Google’s AdSense, more people have turned blogging into a full-time job by monetizing their site’s content. Businesses have also jumped on the blogging format to breathe more life into their sometimes stuffy content.
