A blog is a personal website or web page on which an individual records opinions, links to other sites, etc. on a regular basis.

A blog is a frequently updated online personal journal or diary. It is a place to express yourself to the world. A place to share your thoughts and your passions.

Generally, the blogs are hosted by Google at a subdomain of A user can have up to 100 blogs per account. Up until May 1, 2010, Blogger allowed users to publish blogs on other hosts, via FTP. All such blogs had (or still have) to be moved to Google's own servers, with domains other than allowed via custom URLs. Unlike WordPress, Blogger cannot be installed in a web server.
