What Is A Blog ?

Some people who are not familiar with the computer language will ask what is a blog? Well, a blog (shortened from "Weblog") is a personal Web page that the creator regularly updates. It's similar to a diary or journal except bloggers choose to post their feelings, thoughts and observation for the world to see rather than to scribble them on page. Blogs are usually updated daily or weekly and most offer readers an opportunity to post a comment. No editor, publisher or other third party filters the information. Freedom of speech prevails, but the quality of writing and subject matter are decidedly mixed bag.

Blogs promotes projects, share experiences, voice opinions and chronicle journeys; most contain photos or other graphics and links to other Web sites. A woman who's battling cancer or wants to weight loss may create blog so she can update friends about her health without fielding phone calls all day long. A stay home mom may blog to share her day to day thoughts on raising kids. The possibilities are endless and to date there are more than 70 million blogs on the internet.
