What is a Blog?

A blog is short for weblog. A weblog is a website, or a webpage, which used to consist of personal texts in the form of a 'diary' or description of a specific period. Nowadays blogs also provide commentary on a particular topic or provide more insight into a particular problem

How do Blogs work?

Many blogs illustrate their message or story with photos and other media. By giving readers the opportunity to respond, a stimulating environment can be created where beautiful ideas and thoughts can be shared. Of course there are also blog terrorists who are not so much interested in forming opinions and sharing knowledge, but rather want to share their own frustrations, or who like to silence others. Technical solutions have proven to be a good solution for this
