WHAT IS A BLOG?
A blog simply refers to a “weblog”. An accurate way of describing a weblog is that it is a website that is similar to a diary or journal. It is an Informational website that promotes discussion on various subjects.
Posts are usually displayed in reverse chronological order, which means the recent posts appear at the top of the web page. Blogs have usually been the work of one person and often focusing on a particular subject of interest. In recent times, “multi-author blogs” (MAB’s) have become more popular featuring many writers on diverse subjects and have a more professional approach, in particular with the editing.
MAB’s have been created from various sources including universities, newspapers (and other media outlets), advocacy groups, think tanks and similar organizations. These have all helped to create a rise in the quantity of blog traffic. There have been various “micro logging” sites created such as Twitter which has helped single-author blogs and MAB’s integrate into the news media.

Whether you are using your blog for a personal reason such as discussing a hobby or for promoting your business, the interaction with the reader is an important factor to consider when deciding to start your online blogging.
