The term “website” refers to the actual site itself, and the term Blog or “web log” refers to a category of websites that was created in the early 1990s. Blogs can be standalone or incorporated into a parent website. A blog is usually personal in nature, and many people use them to keep their family and friends informed of their activities. Others use blogs to share information with the world at large about what they are doing. Some people use blogs as a form of advertising. Blogs can be used for all sorts of things, and they are very useful. Blogs are updated on a regular basis, and this is one of the reasons they are so popular. People like to know what’s going on with others, and they like to be reminded of the happenings in the lives of those they care about. In fact, some people have said that reading a person’s blog is akin to reading his or her diary, and this is true to a certain extent.
