What is a blog?
Blog – a shortened form of weblog (web log). It is a ‘log’ of someone’s thoughts and opinions. They have in the past mostly been text based but increasingly they display pictures, video and sound. Entries – Also called ‘blog posts’ or ‘posts’, they are written in a more conversational tone than normal articles. Entries are sometimes time stamped at odd hours because bloggers often post when they are out and about, travelling, or even at night – in short, when they have something relevant to say, they make an entry. Blogs are dynamic and change regularly. They may have new entries posted many times a day or only once a week. They also encourage readers to link to them, share their links with friends and comment on entries.
