What is a Blog?

What is a blog?

A Weblog, which is usually shortened to blog, is a website where regular entries are made (such as in a journal or diary) and presented in reverse chronological order.  Blogs often offer commentary or news on a particular subject, such as technology, politics, or local news; some 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.  Most blogs are primarily textual although many focus on photographs, videos, or audio.

Some blogs are very focused on the personal writing of the author.  Others take an editorial approach, as editors search the Web looking for interesting content.  On their blogs, they may then write up a short comment and link to this content.  Others use blogs as a collaborative tool among a defined group of people who work together on a specific product or issue.  Read more about blogs on

Another form of blogging is the microblog.  As its name suggests, microblogging is simply writing extremely short blog posts in the vein of text messaging.  The messages can either be viewed by anyone or by a restricted group that is chosen by the user.

Denise got her start volunteering from her mother, who is retired, volunteers regularly at the Virginia Opera House and Tidewater Community Senior Citizens House.

Michelle has been a military spouse for over 20 years. Born & raised in the Pacific Northwest, she has embraced the transient lifestyle of those in the military.  Her family of four has moved 11 times in the last 18 years enjoying each duty station and the people they have met along the way.  A two sport college athlete who still enjoys mixing it up on a basketball court or playing catch with her husband, gets her greatest enjoyment now from watching their son at the college level and daughter in highschool compete in their athletic endeavors and interests.  Besides being a sports junkie, Michelle enjoys running with and watching their 115lb Chesapeake Bay Retriever swim and play in whatever water body he can find.  She loves to shop and believes every woman should take advantage of a spa day now and then! Being a Military Spouse has been an amazing journey and yet each day she learns more about the resiliency of a military family!
