|What is a weblog?|
A weblog is a journal or diary of someone's interaction with the Web. Although personal in nature--it is, after all, some person's interaction--it can also be topical, as, of course, the Digital Car Journal is. For a succinct history, see Rebecca Blood's Weblogs: A History and Perspective.
