"Weblog software (also known as blog software or
blogware) enables users to maintain an ongoing chronicle of
information on a website. Typically, a blog is a frequently
updated, personal website, with diary-type commentary, descriptions
of events, and sometimes includes graphics and video as well as
links to articles on other sites. However, blogs can also be used
for business purposes.
"Blogs can be narrow in scope, focusing on one individual topic
or subject, or covering a much wider sphere. The ability for
readers to make interactive comments on the blog is typically
permitted and encouraged.
"This article focuses on software that is set up and hosted on
the platform by yourself, rather than blogging services where a
third-party service is used to handle the blog software, such as
Blogger or Typepad."
