BENEFITS OF BLOGGING

Over the course of my life I’ve embraced a number of hobbies like painting, drawing, singing and much more. But what I felt was there’s a different feeling to have a hobby like blogging. Whenever people ask me about my hobbies my first word will be blog, blogging. Many of my friends have asked me, what do you get from blogging? My reply will be satisfaction, that’s it. I am proud that I have become a writer, where the whole world read what I write. Yes! The whole world!

At first, what is a blog?
A blog is nothing but a website where the entries typically appear in reverse chronological [in order of time from earliest to latest] order. A blog allows the user to share their opinions and discuss various topics in the form of an online journal. To start with a blog, there are many free platforms available online like WordPress, Blogger, tumblr, LinkedIn, Square space and the list goes on. You need to Sign-Up for a new account by providing your details later you need to give a Title to your blog and add a good theme, that’s it. You are ready with your blog.

So today let’s discuss why you should start a blog. What are the benefits of blogging?

1. You’ll become a good writer: Yes, as we know that practice makes man perfect writing again and again helps us to improve our writing skills. Blogging will not force you to write, but if you have a commitment to make your blog successful, you will surely write at least once a day. Your writing skill may help you to write a book or a presentation in future.                                                     

2. It helps you to learn new things: blogging is about sharing what you know. You need to learn something before sharing. Therefore blogging helps you to learn new things and you’ll come to know about your area of interest.

3. It helps to interact with people: let’s assume that you want to start a new facebook page. But the thing is you don’t know how to start with it. So what you do is Google it out and you’ll open up a blog link which helps you with starting a facebook page. You will leave some comments and questions. A new friend! You have never met that person before that took special interest in your questions and helped you to solve your problem. Whether it is through comments, e-mails or social media, you’ll meet people online. Therefore blogging community is a friendly and encouraging media.

4. You can make some money:  blogs are free to audience and open to the public. It is a selfless act of service which turns into a piece of writing. You don’t need money to start a blog, but, you can make money by blogging. A good hobby that pays you back. Blogging makes money through the advertisement in your blog.

5. You’ll become a great thinker: Blogging is nothing but to share ideas and opinions to the world. If you start writing on a specific topic, you need to think about that topic deeply. Therefore increasing your thinking capacity on a topic. Writing on different subjects will surely help you to think about that.

You don’t need a blog to earn huge amount of money or to have a huge following. You need a blog to change your life style. Above I have discussed with five top benefits which changes your life. Follow it, and lead a wonderful life.

VIDEO CONVERTER

   You might have experienced bad or no video playback on your smart phone or any other phones. This may be due to the format of the video that troubles the user. Formats can be like 3gp, mp4, avi, mkv etc. To overcome these problems you have to use certain video format converters. So, today I am going with one of the best 3gp to mp4 converter that is, ABC 3GP CONVERTER for windows os.

ABC is one of the best converter which converts 3gp to high format MP4 or MP4 to low quality 3gp. Certain devices use certain formats. Some play only 3gp format videos and these are not smart phones. Mp4 was designed to be played on various platforms, such as computers, television, DVD players etc. Whereas, 3gp for phones.
Coming to ABC Converter, it is designed such that the user feels easy to convert the files. And this User friendly platform is the best part of this software. You need to select a file which is to be converted. Settings of output-format are provided at the right hand side, where you can change output format and audio settings. Then you need to choose the destination folder, that is, where the output converted file should be stored. Converting process is quite slow, especially the large movie files.

Photo Editor: MIX

Whenever I get a free time, I just go around photography. I try different photo editors and camera apps which suits to my ideas. Till now I have gone through many photo editors in which, few found useful and some at okay range. Here is one of the photo editor app which is simple and good to beginners. Here is the review of the application MIX.

MIX is one of the best editor I have found till now, which runs in parallel to other top application. I have been using this app since few months without any trouble during editing process.

At the beginning you have got two options, one is editor and the other is filter plaza. Filter plaza allows you to download filters, which are created and shared by other users. Photo editor allows you to choose an Image file from your album/gallery for editing process. After choosing an image you will be asked to crop, and this is optional too.
This cropped image is moved to fast editor where there will be few inbuilt effects which can be applied directly on the image. This can also be said as emergency editor. An Aperture is also provided in emergency editor. Then comes a large town full of colour splash, I mean to say lots and lots of effects in the panel.

We have got Filters, Aperture and Texture for good editing. We can also adjust basic nature like brightness, saturation, skin, tone, contrast, temperature and many more.

CONCLUSION: one of the best editor for beginners. Sky editor and other filters gives your pic a good shape.
