A blog (a truncation of “weblog”) is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (posts). Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page.
Early blogs were simply manually updated components of common Websites. In 1995, the “Online Diary” on the Ty, Inc. Web site was produced and updated manually before any blogging programs were available.
