A weblog or blog is a listing of text, images, or other objects that are arranged in a chronological order that first started appearing in 1998. Blogs are often maintained and run by a single individual, updated daily, or contain personal remarks about a topic, a personal ramble, or an update on the person's life. In many ways, many weblogs are like a personal journal or a look into another individual's life and can be a way to learn about people, events, places, and more from people around the world.

Some examples of software and services you can use to create and start personal weblogs include Blogger, Manila, Movable type, LiveJournal, Radio Userland, Typepad, WordPress.


With the popularity of social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, many people have also moved from posting in blogs, to posting on social networks.
