Thank you again bloggers!

What is a blog? Can we agree on a definition for this thing all of us are doing?

Saturday, February 2nd, 2008

It seems important, in terms of creating a dialogue amongst bloggers, the we synthesize our thoughts and feelings about what a blog is into one coherent definition. The internet is littered with technical and personal definitions. As this is a wordpress blog, I thought it would be interesting to include the wordpress defintion of blog, which is short to ‘weblog’ and is a term originally coined to describe a website used as a personal log, or journal. They note that most blogs include a way for readers to comment on what has been posted.

Is this your definition? Do you define blogging in terms of an online diary of sorts? Is it a marketing tool? An online fluid resume? Do you have multiple blogs that you define differently? Is it even important to define what a blog is as long as what the blog is about is clear enough for potential readers?

Hello world!
