A weblog or blog is a listing of text, images, or other objects that are arranged in a chronological order that 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. Weblogs are like a personal journal (cyberjournal), offering the user a way to publicly discuss their life. It provides a personal way to learn more about people, events, places, and 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.
