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.

Survivor Outreach Services AFAP 2010

What is the best way to get your voice heard?


That is the question that we have been asking ourselves for the past 2 years. We have Survivor Conferences and what actually happens to the questions that are asked?

Hello to all, I've been busy in Washinton DC for the past week and a half. This year we decided to have the Survivor Conference follow the Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) protocol. Now the most important issues, as decided by the Survivors themselves, will be forwarded to the Department of the Army and tracked. This way the issues don't fall through the cracks and hopefully the Survivors can get some resolution or answers to their questions.

We held our annual conference in conjunction with the 2010 AUSA conference. We held our Survivor AFAP, had a booth at the AUSA conference, and ran Family Forum IV- so we were really busy. Everything went really well, but now we're exhausted.

Please comment and let us know what you think.

Here is a link to the pictures from the 2010 SOS AFAP

Thank you for your time,
