  • 9. What is a Blog?
  • 10. Definition:
    A blog (a blend of the term web log) 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. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
    -Wikipedia
  • 11. Another definition:
    A blog is like a website but in journal format, personal in its tone and arranged according to date. While a traditional website usually has category or sections and formal in its presentation. Blog owners normally post articles or short notes they want to share, personal or otherwise.

  • 16. What is the difference between a blog and a website?
    A website is normally a static page that changes rarely. When new content is added it comes in the shape of a new page. A blog however is constantly changing. Each time you write a new post it replaces the last one at the top of the page. In effect you have a single page that just scrolls down.
