What is a Blog?
The term ‘Blog’ comes from the combination of “web” and “log” or “weblog,” which initially started in the 1990s as an online diary. Eventually the term was shortened to “blog,” but still remained a resource where people could provide personal accounts of their lives.
Blogs are often included in social media because of their interactive nature. Prior to blogging, visitors could sign website guest books, but there wasn’t a method to have a conversation online (except email) until blogging and the use of comments.
Another aspect of blogs that differ from traditional websites is the frequency with which it’s updated. Many websites are static, in that once they’re up, the information doesn’t change. Blogs, on the other hand, are like news sites, that are updated often with new content.
Like many new resources that pop-up, visionary entrepreneurs recognized the blog format as a marketing tool, and began to use it to provide information and updates to their customers, and as a way to draw in new business. By Randy Duermyer
