Sometimes it feels like we’re running around with our heads cut off… too many new web 2.0 applications! -A blog (a contraction of the term &quot;Web log&quot;) is a Web site, 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. &quot;Blog&quot; can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
