What is Blogging?
A blog is a contraction of the term "Web log."  According to Wikipedia, a blog is a "Website 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." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blogging)
