What is a Blog?
A blog is a website with regular entries or logs, thus the term "web log," giving us what we now refer to as a blog. Blogs allow millions of people to publish and share their ideas with many millions of readers. Blogs cover hundreds of topics, from celebrity gossip to politics to some of our favorites -- food and crafting.

The Blogosphere
The world of blogs is now called the blogosphere, a term many of you have heard countless times. But what does it mean? It's a catch-all term for a world of web logs that have transformed how millions of people exchange information.
