Okay, starting this with my definition of what makes a blog a blog. I want to get a hold on how my understanding in this matter evolves over time while being involved with blogging. So, what is my current thought on this?
To be a blog, a thing must be, of course somewhere on the web. That’s the web part. A logging thing residing on cable TV network wouldn’t be a blog, for instance, because “Hey, it’s on the cable network” not on the web.
Second thing to consider: it should be in reversed chronological order. A log of something. Not a hierarchical tree, a directory or a wiki. Not a closed format like a movie series. Open-ended content stream, in any media (outside the author’s brains) about something, anything really, and in the above stated order.
