They're essentially Web sites but differ bybeing almost all text and by being updated often, sometimes every few minutes.They tend to contain little original content beyond musings and commentaries,but what they're good at is immediacy so-called real-time information and atlinking, whether it be to published articles, e-mail threads, other Weblogs orwhatever. The power of blogs, as they're nicknamed, comes from the Web'sone-to-many publishing capabilities."; blogging)
Barger, J. Weblog resources FAQ, via WWW, Feb. 26, 2003 (A weblog(sometimes called a blog or a newspage or a filter) is a webpage where aweblogger (sometimes called a blogger, or a pre-surfer) "logs" all the otherwebpages she finds interesting. The format is normally to add the newest entryat the top of the page, so that repeat visitors can catch up by simply readingdown the page until they reach a link they saw on their last visit. (Thiscauses some minor, unavoidable confusions when the logger comments on anearlier link that the visitor hasn't reached yet.))
