Term2.png BLOG
Contraction of the term “web log”; it refers to a simple webpage consisting of text, images, media objects, or data, to communicate opinion, information, links or personal entries – called blog posts, posts, or entries and displayed in reverse chronological order. A blog is usually maintained by one person who posts the entries – a "blogger”. Blogs often focus on a particular subject area of interest; they tended to be primarily textual, but with the sophistication of technology many bloggers have started incorporating multimedia into their posts. Each post is usually tagged with keywords, which permits the post to be categorized and then traceable within the system once it becomes dated. Generally, blogs allow visitors to add a comment below the entry which then creates a sort of conversation between the primary author and a group of secondary comment contributors who communicate to an unlimited number of readers.
