Entrepreneur’s Dictionary: Blog

blog

[blawg, blog]

A blog is a web page made up of usually short, regularly updated posts that are arranged chronologically-like a journal. Blog came from the term weblog which was coined by Jorn Barger in 1997. Blogs have evolved and now fall in 2 categories–personal and business/corporate blogs. There are various ways that a person can blog (verb) and those include WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, Typepad and newer platforms like MediumGhost and our own CEO Blog Nation.
