    • Hi Sahil… Thanks for the support and counting me as your bro. 🙂

      Yes.. A blogger should know about the history of Blogging. . And Specially the platfroms that he is using to for the blog. 🙂

  • Hello Ravi,

    First of all I must say you create an awesome Info graphic !! Neat, clean, easy to read and Understandable!

    Great Job Buddy! 🙂

    Well about Blogging Platforms, I was very much Not aware of all these blogging platforms.

    Few days back Atish Bhai told me while chatting on facebook about some of these platforms and that day I got to know that platform won’t decide about the blog.

    It’s the hardwork of a blogger which tell us about the blog and it’s popularity Platform won’t decide anything!

    As I always see people use to compare between WordPress and Blogger Platform !! That’s just to demotivate them who are doing blogging on blogger platform or I don’t know what they are going to show!

    #No_Offence_Just_saying_My_Views and BTW, My blog is also on WP PLATFORM!

    Correct Me If I’m wrong.!!

    Well, A Nice Article with an awesome presentation !!

    • Hey Sugandha … !!! thanks for your appreciation on my work.

      I am agree with your point that platform doesn’t matter for a successful blog. All depends on the hard work as well as the smart work of the Blogger.

      But I would like to high light Some thing.. When we talk about smart work.. It means we need to choose platform that is easy to use and possess a lot of automated functionalities.

      If either platform gives you the environment that you want to have then you must choose that one.

      I am also using wordpress. It is the most used platform in blogging till date and very flexible , easy to use platform.

      By the way thanks for droping the comment 😉

      Happy Blogging 🙂

      As you said WordPress is best .. I agree 😀

      Thanks for the comment

  • Hey Ravi,
    The Infography is outstanding as usual your made on neoblogwriter, I am a user WP and Blogger and i found WP is better that Blogger (In my view). I am personal a very big fan of Matt Mullenweg, who has created this wonderful software at the age of just 22. I am away from the rest of blogging platforms but hope I will try them soon because your inforgarphy has increase my interest in them.

    This inforgraphy is good but it think you need to include Joomla and durpla too. Because now a day they are also very popular. Any way I enjoyed your infography. God bless you. Keep Blogging 🙂

    • Hi Davinder Glad to see you on my post 🙂 Yeah Matt Mullenweg is great person who gave us a wonderfull platfrom to blog.

      Yeah defnitely you should try other platforms to grab the knowledge :D.

      By the way thanks for dropping your comment 🙂

      • Hey Ravi,
        Thanks for your reply pal, As this is a CMS based post then I have a question can you please answer me. From last 2-3 days I am facing an image uploader issue with my CMS. It is showing http error and I am not able to upload any image right now. Can you tell me what are the possible reasons for this. I am using WP 3.5.
        Davinder recently posted…Go Goa Gone – Khushamdeed Song Official Video (HD) | Saif Ali Khan & Kunal KhemuMy Profile

        • Since the WordPress 3.5 has launched. many bloggers faced such problems.

          Even I also face some time these error. Probably it due to the script , that helps to uploading the Images. We were having 3.4.2 as the most stable, but there were also some problems with that version.

          Now WordPress 3.6 is in beta version and soon going to be released to overcome such problems. 😀

          You should weight for it or else u should use stable version .. with security measures . As Hacker can find the lowered version more vulnerable…

          Hope my answer would give you some solution 😀

  • Nice article Mr. Ravi verma
    it is new informaiton to me. Yes, you are right you have to keep knowledge of history of your profession. But i have one query, you didn’t mention Joomla here?
    Rajesh Jhamb recently posted…Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S specificationMy Profile

    • Yes The Question should be arised here. Why I haven’t mentioned Joomla here.

      Before that a Little story.

      I have mentioned only Popular Blog Platform . Though Joomla is also a Blog CMS, but there are lack of flexibility. The above mentioned platforms are very easy to use. No special tectics required and You can learn very easily each of them.

      You can use Joomla in blogging , but you can’t use it efficiently for Blogging. Because the modules are very typical to learn and if you want to upgrade your CMS from older version to a newer version, you might have some problems . Also a Problem for developers of it.

      That’s why I have just shown in those platforms which were initially created for efficient use in Blogging.

      I Just told What I know about it 😀
      For more details you can Google it Why wordpress is better instead Joomla 🙂

  • Amazing infographic, Ravi!
    Brilliant! I had seen one by you earlier when you interviewed Atish Ranjan.
    But this one is even better!

  • A very informative and even interesting article to read.I had never gone through this brief history of blogging so that is really new and very informative for me.Blogging was just almost nothing for me until i started my own blog and got to know that this is keeping the whole world in it.

    • Hi Pooja

      Denitely its informative for who are doing Blogging. and don’t know about the history. There was no infograph regarding this topic . So I created one.

      I agree with you point in a single blog we can put most of the things from the world. 😀

      by the way thanks for the comment 🙂

  • You are right Mr. Ravi Verma
    Joomla is far difficult than other blogging platforms. Before starting WordPress I have bee used Joomla. Its too difficult to operate. Thanks for providing me such useful information…:D
