What is a blog?

A blog is an online presence in the form of a personal diary, website or collaborative space. Since blogs were launched (only about 5 years ago) they have reshaped the web, impacted on politics and enabled millions of people to have a voice and connect with others. It is believed that over 50 million people are Blogging worldwide and this is increasing. Perhaps the reason for this is that they are very easy to create, and edit. In teaching and learning they can be used to create a virtual classroom very simply without having any skills in web development.
