Academic Definition of BLOG

Uses of Blogs | Snurblog: "Defined as the reverse-chronological posting of individually authored entries, that include the capacity to reproduce hypertext links, and that often allow comment-based responses from readers, blogs have evolved from personally maintained “what’s new?” sections of 20th century web sites. The word 'blog' is an abbreviation of 'weblog' and came from a 1999 essay, ‘The Anatomy of a Weblog’, by Cameron Barrett, maintainer of the site, Camworld.

Well, there you have it! Blog defined.
