WHAT IS A BLOG?

P: n/a
This is driving me nuts. As far as I can tell, a blog is a website with an
RSS feed. Some seem to have a calendar of events and some support user
authentication and forms.

Am I missing anything? I guess I just don't get it. Is that all it is. THEY
Won"T STOP SAYING IT ON TV...BLOG BLOG BLOGGER BLOGGING BLOG BLOG BLOG!!!!!
AHHHHH!!!H!H!

Almighty Blog I'm gonna puke. :)

Yeah, there's nothing special about the components, it's the unique
combination of old components and ease-of-use that is "special."

a blog is a weblog - an online diary or journal. Just key "what blog"
into google for about a billion sites that will tell you just that.

Ah, I see the light.

I had tried to find some type of standard yesterday.

I had found a couple of samples on gotdotnet, but the whole term sort of had
this mystic shroud I couldn't see through clearly.

Thanks all.
