1. Introduction to Weblogs

What is a Weblog?
A blog (short for "weblog") is often a mixture of what is happening in a person's life and on the web. It is like an online personal diary, made available for public viewing. People express their opinions and views, share their daily thoughts and experiences through blogs, in a reverse chronological order.
Blogging affects many people. Organisations, schools, the society, the government, and simply EVERYONE!
