What is a Blog?

A blog (short for weblog) is a frequently updated website that often resembles an online journal. It's easy to create and update a blog – it requires only basic access to the Internet, and a minimum of technical know-how. It is one of the easiest ways to publish learner writing on the Internet. It's almost as easy as sending an email.

Nowadays, blogs can also display photos and some people are using them with audio and even video.
Watch this short video for a simple explanation of what a blog is.
