Blog

A Blog (a portmanteau of “web” and “log”) is a website that contains stories and updates in reverse chronological order–the most recent entries appear at the top of the front page, and you browse backwards to move through the past articles. Blogs exploded in popularity the late 1990s with the advent of sites like Open Diary, Live Journal, and Blogger, which made it easy for individuals without web design experience or their own web host to have a personal blog.

Although early blogs were largely personal blogs staffed by a single person, by the late 2000s there was a significant uptick in commercial blogs run less like personal diaries and more like edited and curated digital magazines.
