Questions for you weblog / blog? read? subscribe? write? A blog (a contraction of the term ”Web log”) is a Web site, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. ”Blog” can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog. – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog N.
