  2. 2. A Quick Glance on Blog A blog (short for weblog) is a personal online journal that is frequently updated and intended for general public viewing. Typically, a blog contains a combination of text, graphics and links to relevant websites and other blogs of similar interest. The ability for readers to leave comments on individual posts is also an important feature of most blogs. A blog may also contain widgets and plugins to enhance its functionality. A widget is a small web application, containing dynamic (changing) content, which can be added to any blog. They provide a simple way to arrange the various elements of the sidebar content without changing any code. They include items such as the blogroll which is a list of links to other blogs. Other popular widgets are online polls and calendars. Plugins are also small web applications that are usually installed with your blogging software to provide extra features that are not already available. Plugins support the use of multimedia items such as audio for podcasting and video or adding Google maps to the site. Using widgets and plugins in your blog will be covered later in the module.
