A weblog (now shortened to blog) is a communication tool which enables an individual to write an online personal journal and allows other people to comment on their entries. A blog is defined by the Merriam Webster dictionary as a 'Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments and often hyperlinks provided by the writer'.
A blog is the most common form of online reflection tool in use. A blog is a website where entries are written in chronological in a similar manner to a diary. Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.
Blogs can contain a variety of resources and need not necessarily concentrate on textual information. Blogs can contain videos (vlogs) photographs (photoblogs) audio (podcasts)
