A blog (a portmanteau of web log) is a website where entries are written in chronological order and commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. The Cardinal blog has a “sticky article” which is the introduction article to a column that always stays at the top of the column.
Many of the more interesting blogs provide political commentary or news on a particular subject or product. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (artlog), photographs (photoblog), sketchblog, videos (vlog), music (MP3 blog), audio (podcasting) and are part of a wider network of social media. Blogs have become an important part of news and even offer worthy competition for “eyeballs” to traditional media, such as newspapers, television networks and radio stations. The “blogosphere” is the global and searchable entity of all blog articles in existence.
