Blogging: BlogDefinitions

I'm Susan Herzog, Information Literacy Librarian @ Eastern Connecticut State University. This blog is part of my BlogBib, submitted to The Reference Librarian.

Blog/WebLog: a web page containing brief, chronologically arranged items of information.

Blogger: a person who maintains a blog.

Blogging: the act of creating a blog.

Adapted from Peter Scott.

A Weblog can take the form of a diary, a news service (or summaries of and links to current news items on a topic), a collection of links to other Web sites, a series of book reviews, reports of activity on a project, a journal or diary, a photographic record of an event or activity, or any number of other forms.

Most Weblogs display material for the current month or the current week, with older material being archived on the site for browsing and/or searching (p. 184).
