What is a Blog?

Blog is short for weblog.  Although the actual word weblog seems to me to be pretty short as it is, the Internet, in it's infinite wisdom, has taken to shorting it to Blog, we suppose this is to save space.  By whatever name you call it Blogging has become one of the fastest growing areas on the Internet today.  

One of the best things about blogging is that you can present ideas, concepts, situations or hypothetical ones about anything and then open it up to comments from your readers and visitors.  Often you may find that the comments offered by your readers will provide more value and insight into the topic.  Sometimes they prove you right or perhaps offer up an opinion in opposition, but either way it is a value added to your original blog post.

Another advantage of the Blog format is to have a place where you can post your in-depth articles and comments and then simply link back to them from other forums, newsgroups and online groups.  This makes posting into other areas a breeze as you can simply post links back to your supporting written words.
