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.

February has a lot to celebrate....

National Black History Month, American Heart Month, Wise Health Care Consumer Month…etc

February 2, 2010: Groundhog Day
February 5, 2010: National Wear Red Day®
February 7, 2010: Super Bowl XLIV
February 12, 2010: Lincoln's Birthday
February 14: St. Valentines Day and National Donor Day
February 15, 2010: Presidents Day and Washington's Birthday
Feb 16, 2010: Fat Tuesday (a.k.a. Paczki Day)

I am sure there are many more momentous occasions that I am not mentioning however, I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight one that does not get nearly enough attention.

February 14 isn’t just Valentine’s Day, it’s also National Donor Day.

The fact is that there are over 100,000 people waiting for donor organs right now, and sadly, about 19 people die each day waiting for transplants that can't take place because there isn’t a donor organ available for them. Most of us are potential donors - there is no age restriction and very few people are excluded because of pre-existing conditions.

I registered to be an organ donor while renewing my driver's license years ago.  The process was incredibly easy.

So on the day of love, give the gift of life.  check out the National Donor Day Site.
