  • A blog (a portmanteau of the term &amp;quot; web log &amp;quot;) [ 1 ] is a type of website or part of a website. Blogs are 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. The term &amp;quot;weblog&amp;quot; was coined by Jorn Barger [ 3 ] on 17 December 1997. The short form, &amp;quot;blog,&amp;quot; was coined by , who jokingly broke the word weblog into the phrase we blog in the sidebar of his blog Peterme.com in April or May 1999
  • It offers medium for interacting, creating online content, collaborating and creating a virtual community which is absent in library website which is plain. Also updating, editing website requires technical knowledge of HTML, Java etc but blogging is easy.
