A blog is a kind of online diary or journal in which at least one person writes down facts or thoughts.
The term blog, whose full name is actually weblog, came from the two English terms World wide web and log for logbook.
As a rule, the content of a blog is very different from the content of daily newspapers and magazines. Blog content is usually very personal text content that is similar to a diary entry. In terms of style, it is rather free, designed according to personal preferences. The blog itself usually consists of a long, chronologically sorted list of entries.
In addition to personal blogs, there are also blogs on specific topics (topic blogs) and from companies (company blogs). Microblogging is a special form in which a blog entry does not contain more than 140 words. Probably the best known platform for such microblogs is Twitter.
