What is a blog

Search anywhere on the internet and there are over 2 million answers to this one question?

A blog originally came from the word “weblog” or a “web log” and was usually the work of a single individual and often referred to as an online personal journal where people would share their opinions, ramblings and personal events ..

These days however with over 200 million blogs on the internet, a blog is a means of sharing information and also of interacting with others and is more a conversation with the ability for people to leave comments relating to the topic that was “bloggged”.

Twitter and other microblogging systems have launched blogging into society and this interactivity makes THE BLOG different from static websites.

Blogs are usually updated frequently and can have individual authors or be a collection of authors. They are not necessarily personal and can be used for many different purposes from sharing knowledge in a specialised field to interacting with customers.
