Attempting to create a "Blog Page" and organize my thoughts combined with images has been gratifying - this first day of the New Year - 2009! It has also been challenging for I am so ignorant about the nuts and bolts . . . and learning as I stumble! However: I count this experience as a blessing - learning something new - and sharing with friends (or more likely: boring my friends!).
A frequent, chronological publication of personal thoughts and Web links.
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. Thousands of people use services such as Blogger to simplify and accelerate the publishing process. Blogs are alternatively called web logs or weblogs. However, "blog" seems less likely to cause confusion, as "web log" can also mean a server's log files.
