What is a Blog, Anyways?

My brother-in-law today asked me if I'd heard of blogging, since he knows I'm a computer guy. When I told him yes, he asked me what exactly it is.

I had to pause for a second, because it's not easily defineable. I gave the answer, "it's essentially an online diary" - and immediately thought, no, that's not right.

In a way, a blog is more than just a diary - it's a way of being "published" for all to read.

Of course, given that my counter is only in the hundreds here, it's not like a whole lot of people come to read my blog...
