First, what is a blog? Wikipedia defines a blog as follows:
A blog (a truncation of the expression web log) is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries (“posts”) typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first). Until 2009 blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject. More recently “multi-author blogs” (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited. MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, advocacy groups and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other “microblogging” systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into societal newstreams. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
Blogging [a verb] is the process of adding new entries to and maintaining a blog. Blogs are generally interactive–exchange of ideas through comments, sharing with social media, etc.
This blog, created in 2006 as several separate blogs at Blogger.com, was combined in 2008 at WordPress.com to share information on cycling, technology, and things I [jalex] do, especially photography. Through August 2014, I have been the single author. Now, I want to publish the cycling experiences of others using guest bloggers or contributors. Let’s call them our Writing Team.
