A blog, short for weblog, is a website in a journal format where a user posts commentary or news on a particular subject. While most blogs are text-based, one may also create photoblogs, vlogs (video) or podcasts (audio). Blogs are generally written by one person, but they can be multi-author.


Uses and Potential Benefits

Blogs provide forums for individuals to think and write about subjects that interest them, including links to other blogs or websites.  Many sites allow comments from others, which can build community and establish dialogue.  Combining blog entries with tags allows others to search for specific topical content, making the blog a useful reference.   Example: grantees might communicate with their stakeholders via a frequently updated blogs, informing them of their work and upcoming issues they should be aware of.
