What is blogging?

So, what does the word “blog” mean? According to Adrian Miles “A blog is a web based publication”. With that said I am now a writer who publishes her own words and therefor my words are now forever somewhere in the World Wide Web. The fact that it will always be “out there” after I hit the publish button, just creeps me out. But people still blog, in fact while I’m writing this post 68.699.764 people has a WordPress site.

So why do we blog? If anyone has the answer please comment. I will try to answer it myself during this semester, but for now you can watch this video:
