Different types of blogs are focused on very different goals , so you can not generalize when speaking of running a blog.

What works for one type of blog may not work for another type.

That’s why I wanted to publish this post the types of blogs that exist and what the purpose of each.

Types of Blogs

 

1. Personal Blog.

Created one of the blogs is the personal blog.
Most people who start in the world of blogging you do is create a personal, where the author often talk about their day to day experiences living or where he shares his opinion on different topics.
Having a personal blog is a good way to let go a bit and gain experience, although having success with a personal blog is quite complicated.
The important thing in this kind of blogs is to get a community of loyal readers.
Many people who decide to make a personal blog do not take it seriously, and they usually create on free platforms like Blogger or WordPress.com which is not bad for a start, although after having blogs on Blogger when I started in this business my recommendation is always to start directly on WordPress.org.

  • It’s a good way to delve into the blogging.
  • It’s fun.
  • You can really write about what the hell you want and nothing happens if the content quality is not very good.

  • The Storytelling (storytelling) is a good way to convince the reader to buy a product.
Disadvantages
  • Not usually make money with blogs personal.
  • Adsense, usually only give to go a couple of times to the movies or out to dinner occasionally.
  • Get organic visitors (from search engines) tends to be more complicated and your visits depend more on your followers on networks.

2. Professional Blog.

A professional blog is a blog focused on a specific niche market and aims to get new customers.
In these types of blogs you will see that after each post is usually a call to action with which you are invited to register for the blog or offer you a service contract.
