Short for “Web Log,” this term refers to a list of journal entries posted on a Web page. Anybody who knows how to create and publish a Web page can publish their own blog. Some Web hosts have made it even easier by creating an interface where users can simply type a text entry and hit “publish” to publish their blog.
Because of the ease of creating a blog, many people (often young kids and adults) have found a new presence on the Web. People are now sharing their personal feelings and experiences with thousands of people around the world. Blogs are typically updated daily, monthly, or anywhere in between.
