Blogging is hot. Superhot. According to the web’s encyclopedia, Wikipedia: “A blog (a contraction of the term “web log”) is a type of website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. “Blog” can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.” Blogging is a great way for people to create a site without the constant need of editing files and changing html codes.
