What is a blog anyway?


We get several visitors everyday to our blog site on Bread ‘n Molasses, but there are many viewers asking themselves, “what is a blog?” Well the answer is simple.


A blog is basically a journal that is available on the web. Blogs are alternatively called web logs or weblogs. However, “blog” seems less likely to cause confusion, as “web log” can also mean a server’s log files. The activity of updating a blog is “blogging” and someone who keeps a blog (like Mighty Miramichi) is a “blogger.” Blogs are typically updated daily using software that allows people with little or no technical background to update and maintain the blog. Postings on a blog are almost always arranged in chronological order with the most recent additions featured most prominently. A blog is often a mixture of what is happening in a person’s life and what is happening on the Web, a kind of hybrid diary/guide site, although there are as many unique types of blogs as there are people. So that’s the long version of the story.
