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.

Category: Survivor Outreach Updates

Hello all,


Thank God It's Friday! We have a long weekend because of Columbus Day and then a short week next week. There have been some new and really interesting articles published this week and I'll provide links to several of them. I'm trying to keep this from being a recapp of news you've already read, or heard about, but I'm sure there will be someting in theses links tha will be news to you.

Here are the links,

Stewart honors parents of fallen Soldiers

Army joint effort keeps promise of Army Family Covenant for survivors of the fallen

Gold Star event helps military families cope with death

Support Coordinator assists families of fallen soldiers

Mothers of fallen servicemembers travel to Iraq


I think it's a neat idea for the mothers of our Fallen Hereos to visit the places where their childern were killed. No parent expects to outlive their child, and to do so must be absolutely devestating. I think that anything we can do to help bring closure to these families should be done. These families have made the ultimate sacrifice and the least we can do for them is help them when they need help the most.
