What is Blogging?
Blogging is a popular way for anybody to put information on the web for others to view. Blogs vary greatly in both their style and content. They have a couple of things that distinguish them from other kinds of Web 2.0 web content.
- Content is tagged and catagorized making it easier to search.
- Comments may be made about each posting
- Content is arranged in chronological order from most recent.
