Blog

A blog is an informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (posts). Posts are shown in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page. Until 2009, blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of the small group, and often covered a single subject or topic. In the 2010s, “multi-author blogs” (MABs) emerged, featuring the writing of multiple authors and sometimes professionally edited. MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, advocacy groups, and same institutions account for the bosting the quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other “microblogging” systems supports integrate MABs and single-author blogs into the news media. The blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

However, there are high-readership blogs which do not grant comments. Many blogs offer commentary on a particular subject or topic, ranging from politics to sports. Others function personal online diaries, and others function more as online brand advertising of a particular individual or company A blog combines text, digital images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and the other media related to its topic.
