Blog is the abbreviated version of weblog. A blog is usually a type of website or it is one element of a website. For the most part blogs are maintained and updated by an individual or a group of people. Blogs can come in the form of a personal journal or diary of sorts. I can also be a business blog where the author writes about their business or industry. Blog post entries can be in the form of commentaries, event descriptions, photo journals, how to tutorials, recipes, and the list goes on and on.
Blogger / Blogging:
The blog is the result of the person or group writing it. The person writing the blog post is known as the blogger. And their act of writing the blog post is referred to as blogging.
Just like the earth has an atmosphere the whole community of blogs and bloggers on the global Internet is called the blogosphere. Also known as the blogging world or community.
I always wondered what a blogroll was. A blogroll, sometimes spelled blog-roll or blog roll, is a blogger's list of links to other blogs they also read or support. Ideally your blogroll include blogs that you really like and recommend and share a common interest with your readers. Back in the day you might have seen pages on websites that listed the page owner's favorite sites and resources. This is sort of like that for the blogging world.
