weblog definition

World-Wide Web
(Commonly "blog") Any kind of diary published on the World-Wide Web, usually written by an individual (a "blogger") but also by corporate bodies. Blogging is regarded by some as an important social phenomenon as it contributes to the easy exchange of ideas among a large and growing international community ("the blogosphere").
The home page usually shows the most recent article and links to earlier articles, the owner's profile and web logs written by the owner's friends. There is usually a facility for readers to add comments to the bottom of articles.
There are many sites like (http://blogger.com/) where you can create a blog for free. Many web logs consist almost entirely of links to other web logs, some publish original content, a few are worth reading.
