What is a blog
• Web + Log = Blog
•
A blog is a website where entries are made in journal style and displayed in a reverse
chronological order. Blogs often provide commentary or news on a particular subject, such as
food, 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. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part
of most early blogs. http://www.sussexlearningnetwork.org.uk

There is no need to define 'blog.' I doubt there ever was such a call to define 'newspaper' or
'television' or 'radio' or 'book' -- or, for that matter, 'telephone' or 'instant messenger.' A blog
is merely a tool that lets you do anything from change the world to share your shopping list.
….Blogs are whatever we make them. Defining 'blog' is a fool's errand.“ - Jeff Jarvis, the
veteran print journalist and prominent blogger behind BuzzMachine
