What's a blog?
The aptly named article What's a Blog?, published by the The Nonprofit Quarterly, summarizes it nicely: "An abbreviation of 'weblog,' blogs are Web sites that take the form of online journals, frequently updated with running commentary on any number of topics. Blogs are basically another automated way to share information, related to search engines, listservs, message boards and instant messaging. By streamlining and simplifying the Web page creation process, blogs have enabled users to easily transform information into a stream of constantly updated, interlinked 'microcontent.'"
