Blog

A website to which a person or persons may regularly post journal entries or commentaries. A blog may be a personal diary, a collaboration concentrating on a theme or nearly anything in between. Most blogs allow readers to comment on each entry. Some blogs attract large followings and are monetized through advertisements and in other ways. As of 2007, there were more than 100 million blogs worldwide.
