  Blog - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most blogs are primarily textual although some focus on photographs (photoblog), videos (vlog), or audio (podcasting), and are part of a wider network of social media.
Blogs were among the driving forces behind the "Rathergate" scandal, to wit: (television journalist) Dan Rather presented documents (on the CBS show 60 Minutes) that conflicted with accepted accounts of President Bush's military service record.
Blogs have also had an influence on minority languages, bringing together scattered speakers and learners; this is particularly so with blogs in Gaelic languages, whose creators can be found as far away from traditional Gaelic areas as Kazakhstan and Alaska.

 Urban Dictionary: blog
While blogs have many purposes, some of which can be useful, most people seem to use blogs as a way of having an online diary.
These blogs still exist, and are quite enjoyable to read, however the advent of blogger.com and livejournal.com has changed this once meaningful application into utter shit, allowing every day idiots to write about how shitty their lives are and why everyone should care.
Before it became an internet word, blog was a very strong drink of indeterminate recipe invented by sf fans, worse even than their Nuclear Fizz; like Monty Python’s Australian “fighting” wine, it is generally believed that blog is best left in the bottle so it can be used for hitting people over the head with.

 Blog - definition, information, sites, articles.
A blog is often a mixture of what is happening in a person's life and what is happening on the Web, a kind of hybrid diary/guide site, although there are as many unique types of blogs as there are people.
People maintained blogs long before the term was coined, but the trend gained momentum with the introduction of automated published systems, most notably Blogger at blogger.com.
However, "blog" seems less likely to cause confusion, as "web log" can also mean a server's log files.

Blog is an automatic web logging program which allows you to update your site easily without the hassles of HTML editing and having to use a separate program to upload your work.

 Blog Maverick
I love his most recent blogpost because it is everything right about corporate blogging, its honest, timely and interesting.
You know where one blog calls out another for any number of reasons, but primarily its to try to generate more interest and traffic to their blog.
All the while, he promotes his site to draw readers, possibly chooses blog posts that will generate the most readership and promotes his TV appearances as a means to  pimp his books , which are for sale with HUGE  graphics on every page of his blog.

New blog posts are automatically added to your RawSugar directory if you enter the blog’s web feed in the Feed URL field on the blog sync page.
We’ve created directories for many of the most popular blogs which use tags, or something like tags such as categories, in several major categories like politics, web 2.0, consumer electronics and sports, and the number of included blogs will be increasing all the time.
Many blogs are already syncing, the uptake has been much faster than we hoped to see, and we’d love to have you add yours as well.

 Jonathan Schwartz's Weblog
As a CEO who blogs, the most frequent question I get is, "doesn't this drive your lawyers nuts?" And as I've said, no. Our legal team understands, guides, drives - and protects - our business.
And somehow, my blog isn't deemed to be such a non-exclusionary distribution vehicle (but a press release, or the Wall Street Journal is).
But all in all, a really great week - we're now making serious progress on open sourcing Java (and despite the cynics, using a GPL license is very much *on* the table), while focusing the debate on what matters most: not access to lines of code (that's already widely available), but ensuring compatibility.

Boston is losing the talents of Andy Carvin who blogs that he's moving to Washington D.C. to take a job at NPR where he will be the one responsible for bringing Web 2.0 to that venerable institution.
To help spread the word about celebrity blog portal ChatWithAStar.com, the Blogmobile rode around NYC on August 7th allowing fans stop in and blog with their favorite celebs or pro-athlete.
I took a blog break for the last two weeks and it took a while before it felt OK to just get up without powering up FeedDemon.

 BBC SPORT | World Cup 2006 Blog | From our reporters in Germany
17 Jul 06, 04:33 PM LONDON - Thanks to everyone who contributed to this blog, which is one of a number being trialled across the BBC.
But look out for other BBC Sport blogs - including our on-going editors' blog where you can discuss our coverage, and other forthcoming event blogs we will be running - for instance for the Ryder Cup and the Ashes.
It’s quite hard to look back over the last few weeks as it seemed to whip by so quickly, the memories are all a bit of blur at the moment, but I’m sure in a few weeks I’ll be able to pinpoint my favourite incidents more clearly.

 Ring around the blog...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
A blog is basically a journal that is available on the web.
The activity of updating a blog is "blogging" and someone who keeps a blog is a "blogger." Blogs are typically updated daily using software that allows people with little or no technical background to update and maintain the blog.
Postings on a blog are almost always arranged in chronological order with the most recent additions featured most prominantly.
