From the term "Web log," a blog is a journal intended for public reading on a website. They come in many forms and with many types of content. Many blogs are a personal account of the author's thoughts, opinions, ideas, and even activities. Some celebrities and other famous people have their own blogs. Also, some organizations and other groups maintain a blog in order to inform members of upcoming events, or to provide a convenient forum so members can express their views.

Blog can be used as a noun, as described above, and also as a verb, as in "Francis has really blogged a lot lately." Or, "Holy smoke, Francis says James' been blogging too much."
