Blogs

A blog is short for weblog. It is an online journal on the Web which allows people to automatically publish content in the form of posts (text) and thus share it with a wider audience. On the other hand the readers of the blog are able to comments on the content made available and communicate with its author through the comment feature enabled in blogs.
