What does Blog mean?

Web log

A blog is an abbreviation for ‘web log’. It’s an online diary where people write about their thoughts, experiences or ideas and share them with others on the internet. These entries often include text, pictures or videos and are usually updated frequently.

Most bloggers use a Content Management System (CMS) like Wix or Joomla to create and manage their blogs. The word ‘blog’ can be used as a noun, referring to the online journal itself, or as a verb, representing the action of writing or updating this online journal.

As more people get access to the internet, blogging and social media have become popular ways to express opinions and share life experiences. You can find a blog about almost anything these days. Some of the common blog categories include travel, video games, fashion, sports, music, films, and advice for parents.
