What Is a Blog?
A blog (also called a weblog or web log) is a website consisting of entries (also called posts) appearing in reverse chronological order with the most recent entry appearing first (similar in format to a daily journal).
Blogs typically include features such as comments and links to increase user interactivity. Blogs are created using specific publishing software.
Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject or function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (art blog), photographs (photoblog), videos (video blogging), music (MP3 blog), and audio (podcasting).
Microblogging is another type of blogging, featuring very short posts.
