1/4/2007: It's Not Brain Surgery, Either!

blog -- A frequent, chronological publication of personal thoughts and Web links.
A blog is often a mixture of what is happening in a person's life and what is happening on the Web, a kind of hybrid diary/guide site, although there are as many unique types of blogs as there are people.

People maintained blogs long before the term was coined, but the trend gained momentum with the introduction of automated published systems, most notably Blogger at blogger.com. Thousands of people use services such as Blogger to simplify and accelerate the publishing process.
Blogs are alternatively called web logs or weblogs. However, "blog" seems less likely to cause confusion, as "web log" can also mean a server's log files.

When I sent a link for MyJournal (this blog) to one of my fellow Glendora Rotarians, I got the unexpected but truthful (remember the 4-Way Test?): "What's a blog?"

Despite the fact that a simple Google search on the word, blog, produces a phenomenal 1.06 billion HITS, evidently many in our world have not discovered this new match of electronic publishing with personal journals.I am pleased to learn my new role as a "missionary" for this medium, even though it is not brain surgery. Interested in learning more about blogs?
