Definition of Blog
A blog (a contraction of the term "weblog") is a type of website,
usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of
commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as
graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-
chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to
maintain or add content to a blog.
Origination of ‘blog’
The term "weblog" was coined by Jorn Barger on 17 December 1997.
The short form, "blog," was coined by Peter Merholz, who jokingly broke
the word weblog into the phrase we blog in the sidebar of his blog in April or May 1999. Shortly thereafter, Evan Williams at
Pyra Labs used "blog" as both a noun and verb ("to blog," meaning "to
edit one's weblog or to post to one's weblog") and devised the term
"blogger" in connection with Pyra Labs' Blogger product, leading to the
popularization of the terms.
Functions of blog
Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others
function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text,
images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to
its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive
format is an important part of many blogs.
