Blogs > What is a Blog?
August 11, 2010 Michael Bickerton
I thought I’d give you some information about what is a blog and in doing the research it became apparent there is a plethora of information available. Wikipedia has a vast definition and Blogger provides a simple version. Suffice to say a blog is a “web log” and provided as a type of website or a part of a website.
Blogs are considered one of the first social media activities; they are generally published from recent posts to older posts. Blogs generally provide links to other blogs and third party information; often they include links to prior blogs as well (Note my links above).
One thing to consider when building or implementing your blog is that it’s an interchange and exchange. You must expect feedback, some positive, some negative, but surely there will be feedback. Social Media has a way of making you and your brand accountable.
