Chapter 1. The Blog Phenomenon > So, What Is a Blog?

So, What Is a Blog?

Although the basic concept has been around since the primordial days of the web, today’s blogs and the community that binds them are a relatively recent phenomenon. Sites like Blogger.com make it easy for writers to manage and update a site from a web browser. The blog is very much a writer’s medium.

Blogs are usually made up of brief, frequently updated posts that are arranged chronologically. The text most often flows vertically down the page, and modules or boxes aligned in columns down the sides of the page very often provide information about the author—favorite links, recently read books, recently seen movies, currently playing albums, and so forth.
