is a "blog"?
allows individuals to post information directly to the Web without any
knowledge of HTML scripting or web authoring softwares. Any information
entered into a blog is instantly published to a Web site. Blog
automatically posts information to a Web site (either hosted by the
site sponsor or to your own Web space, if you have one). As you add
information (by signing into your blog site) the new material you
is automatically posted on your blog.
