What Does Blogging Mean to You?

Do you know the definition of blog? This was an interesting question posed by me to me. Did you know the definition is actually in the dictionary and that this year Blogosphere is being added to the new edition. Here is the definition:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A blog (short for web log) is a website where entries are made and displayed in a reverse chronological order.

Blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject, such as food, politics, or local news; some function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of most early blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual although some focus on photographs (photoblog), sketchblog, videos (vlog), or audio (podcasting), and are part of a wider network of social media.

The term "blog" is a portmanteau, or, in other words, a blend of the words web and log (Web log). "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Tell me what blogging means to you, I really want to here from you. The top of this page is basically what blogging is to me.
