I am watching an episode of House about a blogger. I haven’t got far enough to know what’s going on yet. But I think it’s interesting to see blogging in the popular media, because I feel a little bit like considering I have a quite wide variety of friends, very few of them read blogs (with the exception of this one, of course).
Wikipedia says that a blog is:
of the term web log
is a type of website
or part of a website
. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. Blog
can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog
Most blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites.
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.
Wasn’t that interesting everyone? Now, I need rest.
