A web log (or "blog") is similar to an online journal. It is largely text-based, so it's easy to update and maintain-even if you have no experience running a Web site. Any type of information can be presented on a blog, from stories about a family vacation to in-depth commentary on world politics. In addition, most blogs allow visitors to post responses to blog articles or entries and leave feedback for the person running the site, known as a "blogger". Overall, a blog is a fast, easy and fun way to establish an online presence.
A podcast is a way to broadcast multimedia files - audio or video-over the Internet for playback on mobile devices (ex. MP3 players) and personal computers. Podcasting lets the podcaster create a broadcast about a subject of interest to him/her and their subscribers. Subscribers simply download the podcast and listen to it at their convenience.
Blogs: Blogcasts with text and limited pictures typically require little storage and bandwidth—Economy plan will be sufficient for most bloggers.

Blogging has redefined the way humans do just about everything. At heart, a blog is an online journal or "Web log". According to a 2007 article in CNET ("Blogs turn 10 – who's the father?"), blogs typically feature sequential posts "sorted by date, with the newest posts at the top and the rest archived for future use". At some point in time, the words "Web" and "Log" were combined into "blog".
Many blogs give readers an opportunity to respond to posts with comments of their own. This quality has made blogging a whole new means of communication, one that's not limited by social status, age or geography.
Now more popular than email, blogging and social networking have been credited with everything from upstaging journalists to overthrowing governments. On an average day, 900,000 new blogs posts are published to the Web in one of 81 different languages. Seventy-seven percent of the world's active Internet users read one or more of them.
Quick Blogcast makes it quick and easy for anyone – even a beginner – to create a blog. We handle the heavy lifting: with Quick Blogcast, designs and themes are all built-in and selected using templates. There's no need to worry about hosting paths, and managing your blog responses is easily done through Quick Blogcast's integrated dashboard.

You can also upload any valid video file and quickly convert it to a Flash video format. Quick Blogcast also allows you to edit your video's start and end point, so it can be shortened or lengthened as you wish.
