The definition of blogging is something that changes as fast
the new technologies that appear every day. What a blog is, what a blog can be, and what a blog should do, can vary from person to person.

For many years, blogs were defined as text-based websites that kept records of days, similar to a captain’s log on a ship. This started to change as the people who kept blogs became more diverse. The more bloggers began to explore the limits; the more the boundaries of what could be called a “blog” have expanded.

Today, there are an abundance of photo blogs, even video blogs.
Mobile blogging devices have now change the definition of blogging
entirely by making it possible for bloggers to create new kinds of
posts. Another element of blogging that is starting to redefine blogging is the business blog. As more companies hire writers to keep blogs with the purpose of creating positive buzz about their brand.

Between all of these different forces that are constantly
expanding and reshaping the the definition of blogging, it is hard to say if the definition of what is and is not a blog will ever remain fixed for very long.
