Blogs and Blogging

A "blog" (derived from "web log") is a website where entries are usually displayed in reverse chronological order. There are over 100 million blogs and the number is growing daily.

"Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others 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. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs."
