This is the TMD Blog or Weblog. So what is a Blog? A blog is similar to an electronic journal or diary. The writer, known as a blogger, makes periodic entries, sometimes as frequently as a few times a day. Blogs can be on any subject, for instance, politics or relationships. Businesses, voluntary groups and education are also increasingly using them.
These musings may be of interest only to the blogger's family and friends or they can command the attention of a global audience. It all depends on how thoughtful and compelling it is. What distinguishes blogs from other online content is that it is highly personal, reflecting the point of view of the blogger.
In the early days of blogging--the late 1990s--blogs typically consisted of lists of links to interesting websites or articles, along with some annotation or commentary from the blog's editor. The editor acted as a personal guide to the volume of information that was flooding the Web. Some current blogs still adhere to this format, but many others have become more free form--a chronological posting of all kinds of material, including written musings, photos and references to other blogs. One thing has remained consistent though: new entries appear at the top of the page and older ones are archived according to date.
