Blog

October 29, 2007

A blog, or weblog, is a type of online diary that can be easily updated. An article on a blog is called a post, and will be dated. Blogs usually have comments sections allowing interaction and debate between the blogger and the audience. Blogs will often link to other blogs, creating an online world of blogs called the blogosphere.

Blogs offer a powerful opportunity for individuals, small businesses and organisations to have a visible voice despite their small size – through interesting posts that are linked to by other blogs, or disseminated across the web via RSS feeds.

Blogging software may be pay-for or free to use. Blogs are usually hosted by third parties Рpopular blogging sites include  Typepad, Blogger and WordPress.
