The weblog or blog, for short, as a medium is not much older than this century. Blogs came into being in the World Wide Web as ’messages from below’, as web pages from web creators who wanted to share their view of the world with the world. They are short notes, long texts, pictures, videos, which are posted loosely and at random intervals to the world for an undefined public.
Today, there are blogs about almost any topic and in every corner of the world telling about things and events their authors consider worthy of being communicated. And the types of blogs differ just as much as their contents and the makers of the blogs.
