It all started here…

It all started when I was sitting in zero period Academic Decathlon, reading 15 Minute Lunch’s blog and decided that I wanted to write my own blog. Blog. Everyone seems to be using that word. But what is a blog?

So Googled it. “Blog”:

A sponsored ad for some blog space.

Then some stock information for BLOG. Maybe I can invest in my own blog; buy a share of myself. After all, it’s gone up 2.62% (Mar 3 7:45pm ET).

Next, a link to Blogger. That makes more sense than the stock lookout on Bladelogic, Inc. Never heard of that company.
Then we have Google Blog. How modest of them not to put themselves on top of the list.

After Google Blog, there’s Facebook’s blog. There’s a little blurb:

The Blog: Since
you’re here reading, you know what the blog is. This is a good place to
get extended information about what’s going on at Facebook. …

Quite on the contrary. There’s a reason why I’m researching “blog”.

John Schwartz’s Blog.

A weblog site maintained by the CEO and President of Sun Microsystems, featuring insight to the company and its products.

Now why in the world would I want to know about Sun Microsystems? This link should’ve been found on the googleth (please let me know if there is a proper word involving ‘google’ that means “In the very back”) page.

What I was really looking for (which I cheated and clicked on before I wrote all this before), was Wikipedia. By some oversight, it turns out that Wikipedia was the between Blogger and Facebook Blog. Wikipedia says,

A blog (a portmanteau of web log) is a website where 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.

Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. 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), audiopodcasting) are part of a wider network of social media. Micro-blogging is another type of blogging which consists of blogs with very short posts. As of December 2007, blog search engine Technorati was tracking more than 112 million blogs.

What will my blog be? We shall see.
