According to Webopedia.com, a blog (short for Weblog) is “a Web page that serves as a publicly-accessible personal journal for an individual. Typically updated daily or weekly, blogs often reflect the personality of the author.
The definition of blog is constantly evolving, though, as blogs move into the mainstream, shedding their image as the bastion of the self-obsessed who just have to self-express. Thousands of new blogs are being created every day, for all sorts of purposes. Rather than existing to catalog someone’s personal life, many blogs serve as discussion communities about particular issues.
Another definition may be: A blog is a regularly updated online journal of information and opinions. Anyway you want to look at it, the fact is that it is information brought to the reader that is usually opinionated and timely.
