What is a blog?


Here’s what Google tells us when we do a search on this question:

what is a blog?


And I think that pretty much sums it up.

A blog is a website, generally run by one person and generally quite personal.

Even a really professional blog, for example Nikki Parkinson’s Styling You is a blog because it is very much run by Nikki and reflects her style, images, writing and personality.

Most blogs also follow the format of having the most recently published post at the top of the page, followed by the next post in reverse chronological order.

Veteran blogger and expert Annabel Candy has this format on her travel and lifestyle blog Get In The Hot Spot.

The larger and more professional blogs now may have a different front page, however the newest posts are almost always shown there very clearly.

See my Hello Sydney Kids blog where the ‘What’s New’ section is usually at the top.

Styling You has a welcome from Nikki at the top and then an ‘As Seen In’ section and then the latest posts.

Your own blog will be exactly the way you want it to be. And if you prefer to call it a website then that’s all good too.
