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.
