Blogs and Blogospheres

Page history last edited by Stephen Woodall 11 years, 1 month ago


A blog is a type of website, 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. - Wikipedia


The blogosphere is made up of all blogs and their interconnections. The term implies that blogs exist together as a connected community (or as a collection of connected communities) or as a social network in which everyday authors can publish their opinions. -Wikipedia


There are literally thousands upon thousands of blogs and bloggers out on the internet today, with more created every day with new discussions, thoughts, and news. A good resource, besides some common blogs and blogspheres listed below, includes BlogCatalog and Technorati's Directory.
